Grab ‘n Go

A blend of protein powder, French vanilla coffee, and a touch of yogurt give this shake its rich coffee flavor and creamy texture. With six times the protein and only a fraction of the sugar of a store-bought frozen coffee drink, our Frozen Coffee Protein Smoothie is a healthy pick-me-up that won’t spike your blood sugar. Add a piece of fresh fruit on the side, and you’ve got a fast and nutritionally balanced breakfast to go.
