Summer Swaps – “Better For You” Iced Coffee

“Coffee is a language in itself”

Jackie Chan

I am seriously one of those people that absolutely NEEDS to have their morning coffee on the daily. No coffee = A surefire way to guarantee that my day is spent nursing an endless string of headaches – no, this is not a joke – it’s that bad. I completely understand that this is a wildly unhealthy relationship with coffee… especially when I used to be a “double, double” type of gal. However, I’m slowly starting to make some slight adjustments in the whole caffeine department! Baby steps you guys! My new-found obsession, thanks to this sweltering summer, happens to be a “better for you” version of iced coffee.. of which I’m sharing with all of you today! Enjoy!

“Better For You” Iced Coffee


  • 1 Scoop of Protein Powder – I used N8ked’s, Chocolate Coconut Protein Powder (20g of protein, Non GMO & Gluten/Lactose-Free). For a plant-based option, try Vega Essentials Shake – Chocolate (also 20g of protein). This will be your sweetening element; not to mention, this offers up a unique alternative to your protein smoothies!
  • 1 Cup of Coffee
  • Ice Cubes
  • Almond OR Coconut Milk – perfect cream substitute… especially coconut milk – I find it to be a bit creamier!! 


  • Add ice cubes to a cup
  • Pour coffee into the cup (be sure that you’ve let the coffee cool to room temperature, prior to pouring it into the cup)!
  • Stir in protein powder
  • Add desired amount of almond or coconut milk
  • Mix
  • Drink!
