Yes, I’m using all capitals because I’m EXCITED to share this drink. Aaaaand I might be slightly over-caffeinated as I type this post.

This cool and creamy treat has been the perfect drink to sip on while I’m making a post-workout feast meal. To get started, just fill a large tumbler with ice (affiliate link!).

Pop your French Vanilla Iced Coffee K-Cups (affiliate link!) into the machine. If you don’t have a Keurig, you can buy iced coffee quarts at the grocery store or follow this easy recipe.

Add a little sweetener. My current fave is Trader Joe’s Stevia Extract (affiliate link!).

Then add a half or a full scoop or vanilla protein powder. I used Body Fortress Super Advanced Whey Protein Powder, Vanilla, but feel free to use your favorite brand (affiliate link!).

Give the drink a stir, and you’re ready to feed those muscles while getting your caffeine kick for the day.

But really though. It’s SO easy to overdo the caffeine with this drink. I could chug four cups in 10 minutes if I wasn’t paying attention.

I was trying to cut back on my caffeine intake because it’s the summertime and I’m not in school. However, now that I’m watching my cousins as their nanny, I have two or three cups a day. I love kids, but they’re EXHAUSTING. Kudos to all the mothers out there.

Let me know if you try the coffee. I’d love to know what you think! 🙂

Question:

  1. Do you drink iced coffee in the summertime?

  1. I swear the heat and humidity in Florida become more unbearable each year. I'm so glad I'm actually in NY for a month. We've had a few muggy days here, but it's been nice to have highs only reaching 80 degrees as opposed to 90!

  2. Protein Iced Coffee is the best! You can totally chug 4 of them down in 10 minutes. Today I didn't want the caffeine but wanted the coffee taste. I was on my way out of the house, so I put some protein powder in a container, stopped at Starbucks, got a decaf iced coffee and poured the protein in. Thanks for the iced french vanilla coffee blog!

  3. I've made this drink with decaf K-Cups since posting the recipe because I also don't want to overdo the caffeine. That's a great idea to bring protein powder and order Starbucks if you're on-the-go!
