The 3 best coffee smoothies
If there’s no time for breakfast in the morning and your body just can’t get going, these three protein-rich coffee smoothies will get you going – and they’ll also fill you up.
When the alarm clock rings in the morning, there is often no time left for a nutritious breakfast. Instead, people often plunge into the hustle and bustle of the office jungle without a meal or just with a coffee to go. This guarantees the waking caffeine kick, but a growling stomach and a drop in performance are not long in coming.
The solution: protein-rich coffee smoothies! Thanks to high-protein and caffeine-containing ingredients, the drinks are a wake-up and satiating agent in one, provide liquid and ensure an energetic start to the day. In addition, the smoothies are ready to mix in no time at all and can be drunk on the way to the office or right at your desk – your colleagues will be amazed!

Coffee smoothies: Top 3 high-protein pick-me-ups
Oat coffee smoothie
Oatmeal, espresso and banana make this coffee smoothie the perfect companion in the morning! The shake is high in protein, slow-digesting carbohydrates and fiber – a growling stomach doesn’t stand a chance here. The coffee smoothie also wakes up tired people because the espresso shot stimulates the circulation and metabolism.
For one Oat coffee smoothie 2 tbsp oat flakes, 1 shot espresso, 1 small banana, 1 tsp cocoa powder and 100 ml milk or plant-based drink are put into a blender and processed into a coffee smoothie. Depending on the desired consistency, you can add more oats, 1 tablespoon walnuts or liquid. Tip: For an iced coffee, reduce the specified amount of liquid by about half and fill up with ice cubes instead.
Vanilla Latte Smoothie
Instead of the high-sugar vanilla syrup you can get at any coffee shop these days, this coffee smoothie gets its popular flavor from vanilla protein powder. Greek yoghurt is used as the main ingredient in this recipe: It is a real protein bomb and at the same time low in carbohydrates – the slimming food of many models and athletes.
For one Vanilla Latte Smoothie 100 g Greek yoghurt, 2 tbsp milk, 1 tbsp vanilla powder, 1 ripe peach and a handful of ice cubes are put into a blender and mixed into a drink. Depending on the desired consistency, a little milk or peach can be added here.
Porridge and coffee are always on your breakfast table? Perfect! Because this pick-me-up smoothie combines all the nutritious components in just one shake: complex carbohydrates, protein, high-quality fatty acids, vitamins and minerals – all this goes into the body sip by sip and keeps it fit.
For the Pick-me-up smoothie 1 banana, 3 tbsp oat flakes, 1 tsp rapeseed oil, 1 espresso, 1 tbsp almonds, 1 handful of ice cubes (depending on preference) and 150 ml milk or plant-based drink are mixed in a blender to form a smoothie. If you like it more liquid, add another dash of liquid. Topped with some cocoa powder or coconut flakes, the pick-me-up smoothie is ready to drink!
