Coffee Protein Whip- Whipped coffee topping

Add some protein to your morning with the coffee protein whip

Recently, we have been seeing the wave of whipped coffee cover all social media spheres. So naturally we figured we’d try our hand at it and see how we can improve upon the recipe and make it bariatric friendly and full of protein! Keep reading to hear more about how we made this protein coffee recipe.

To do this, we grabbed our favorite protein powder and made a shake to substitute the whole milk base used in the original whipped coffee recipe. Then, the fun part – the whipped coffee topping! To make this light and fluffy with light brown peaks, we whipped it by hand, but if you have a hand mixer then definitely take advantage of technology and crank it up! After whipping until the peaks started to form, we grabbed our protein shake, placed it in a cute glass and placed generous dollops of the coffee whip on top!

The end result was a strong and bold flavor provided by the coffee whip that was brought down to form a thick mocha flavor (we used chocolate protein powder, but feel free to use whatever protein powder you have on hand!) We were glad to have a chocolate protein shake as the base to pair well and balance out the strong whipped coffee flavor, however vanilla protein powder would likely taste just as good, especially for those who enjoy a hearty espresso! Before our taste testers even reached the bottom of the glasses, we knew we had an instant hit our hands!

The fierce coffee flavor packs the necessary punch to wake us up, while the protein shake acts as a chaser to effectively nullify any overly strong coffee flavor, and deliver protein needed for a productive day! No matter which weight loss surgery you had, you should have protein goals and this recipe should help you get there. Whether you are a coffee enthusiast or not, we feel confident that you will be hooked on this protein coffee recipe from the first cup!
