Refresh yourself and refuel your muscles with this chilled coffee treat

This Iced Coffee Protein Shake Recipe Is The Ultimate Summer Drink For Gym-Goers

Protein shakes and coffee are probably the two drinks most beloved by gym-goers of all stripes. Coffee to perk you up pre-workout and a protein shake to refuel your muscles afterwards. Two excellent drinks and a pairing that can be combined into one all-conquering summer superdrink.

“Enjoy this iced coffee drink as an afternoon pick-me-up or drink it 30 minutes before your workout to give you a boost while packing in the protein,” says Templer.

The recipe below suggests using vanilla flavour protein powder, but Templer says mocha or chocolate powder would work too.

Ingredients (Serves One)

  • 30g vanilla whey protein powder
  • 300ml milk (of your preference, Templer recommends coconut or unsweetened almond milk)
  • Coffee


  1. The preparation starts the night before. Make a regular hot coffee (as strong as you like) and then pour it into a ice tray. Pop the coffee in the freezer overnight so it turns into ice cubes of coffee. Make a lot if you want to enjoy iced coffee all week long.
  2. Mix 30g of vanilla whey protein powder with 300ml of your choice of milk and give it a shake until the protein and milk have blended together. Use milk that’s at room temperature if possible so the coffee ice cubes of melt sooner.
  3. Pop your coffee cubes out of the tray and into a glass, then pour the milk mixture over. Top it up with normal ice if needed or if you want a weaker coffee.
