You’re a true multitasker, sneaking in a few sumo-squats while brushing your teeth and brewing coffee as you hop in the shower. You don’t have a second to waste – especially in the morning – which is why breakfast most often becomes nothing but an errand on the way to work. As efficient as you think you are, your body is taking a toll. What you need is a portable protein drink that serves up more than the average shaker cup, including energy, muscle-building aminos, medium-chain triglycerides and essential vitamins and minerals. This mocha-flavored, maca-enhanced shake is the one that does it all – just like you!
The perks get even better. This multitasking mocha-chino doesn’t feature any gluten, dairy or soy, and it can be enjoyed year-round. When the weather is steamy, add iced coffee and a splash of cold coconut milk to cool you down. As winter rolls in, pour this shake into an insulated mug with hot coffee for a warm wake-up call. See the prep tips below.
