Morning Protein Jumpstart Shake


    • 1 Cup Coconut Milk (or any other milk preferred)
    • 1 Cup Ice
    • 1 Scoop Vital Whey Cocoa
    • 1 Whole Banana
    • 1/8 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
    • 4-5 Whole Mint Leaves

A dose of protein is a great way to start your morning. Protein helps you stay satisfied until lunch and kicks your metabolism into high gear. A high protein breakfast has been associated with a lower calorie intake all day long.

While you may already have a favorite morning protein shake recipe, why not kick it up a notch by trying a protein shake that increases metabolism as well?

In this morning energy protein shake recipe, we added a few extra ingredients to help kick your energy up a notch. We started with our protein-rich Vital Whey Cocoa, the finest whey protein on the planet. This adds 15 grams of undenatured, nutrient-dense whey protein to help sustain long-term energy.

Coconut milk is rich in medium-chain triglycerides, a type of fat that can be immediately used for energy. This makes it an ideal ingredient for any heart healthy protein shake.

We made this a spicy protein shake by adding a dash of cayenne pepper and some mint leaves. The pepper helps speed up your metabolism all day. Fresh mint gives you a boost of energy and a refreshing flavor.

Use this recipe to mix up your morning protein shake to start your day and your metabolism off on the right foot.











Serving size: 1 smoothie

1. In a blender add all ingredients and blend until smooth and enjoy


Kitchen Notes:

The cayenne pepper does give the shake a little heat but nothing painful this is especially good to note if you do not like spicy foods.   If you really enjoy spicy foods go ahead and kick it up a notch and add more. Also any milk or plant milk like works with this drink. If you need more protein go ahead and add two scoops still works very well.
