Let’s take a look at the ingredients in this shake, and why I think they’re pretty fantastic all around!
Coffee + Chocolate Treat: 310 Mocha Shake
While there are different flavors of meal replacement shake powders available, it’s more rare to find a mocha one – but this is the key ingredient in this shake recipe! Featuring a rich cocoa flavor with a hint of coffee, 310 Mocha Shake is the perfect base to start building the complex flavors for this Café Mocha Protein Smoothie.
Containing a blend of powerful plant-based proteins to help increase feelings of fullness and support your weight loss goals, 310 Mocha Shake is ideal for when you’re crunched for time but want a quick, healthy meal on-the-go.
With 5g of dietary fiber to support gut health, 15g of protein to help the body build and maintain lean muscle, 26 vitamins and minerals, powerful superfoods, probiotics, and undeniably good flavor, this shake is a must-try.
Antioxidant-Packed Energizer: Black Coffee
Let’s take a look at the coffee in this recipe…
In general, many “coffee drinks” get a bad rap since they typically contain lots of sugar, sugary syrups, or other artificial flavorings. I’m definitely guilty of splurging on a sugar-packed drink every now and then!
However, when considering black coffee – with none of the added sweet stuff – it’s actually rich in antioxidants that are great for your health. In fact, some studies even show that coffee may offer protection against some diseases.
BUT, drinking black coffee really isn’t for everyone, as it has a strong, bitter taste, and just isn’t as exciting as adding cream, sugar, or other tasty ingredients. However, the nourishing additions to this shake recipe, (310 Mocha Shake, almond butter, and cacao powder), mask the bitterness of the coffee, so you can have it taste like a guilty treat, while still reaping all the potential health benefits!
Added Taste & Texture: Almond Butter
It may seem strange to add this ingredient into a blended coffee drink, but it's SO yummy, I promise!
Almond butter gives a rich taste and texture, while providing a boost of additional nutrients! It adds thickness, natural sweetness, and a cookie-like flavor to this Café Mocha Shake, to help crush your sweet tooth. Not to mention, it’s full of protein, fiber, and healthy fats, to nourish your body with essential micro and macronutrients needed for a balanced diet!
