Protein-Rich Iced MochaJuly 21, 2022
Thank you to Naked Nutrition for partnering with me on today’s post. All opinions are mine alone.
Summer mornings are pretty hectic around here. From getting the kids ready for camp early in the mornings to giving the dog his long walk around the neighborhood to tackling my own errands around town, I am always on-the-go during the summer. That’s why I love drinks and snacks that do double-duty like this Protein-Rich Iced Mocha. Not only is it caffeinated for an effective pick-me-up, but it’s also packed with high-quality, grass-fed whey from Naked Whey Protein.
What I love about Naked Nutrition is that their products are completely free of additives, colors and artificial sweeteners. In fact, the brand is committed to reducing the number of steps from the farm to the consumer, resulting in a whey protein that is fresh & packed with benefits! In fact, there are only three ingredients in the formulation of this protein powder:
- grass-fed whey protein
- organic coconut sugar
- organic cacao
Today’s recipe for a Protein-Rich Iced Mocha is delicious any time of the day, but it’s especially beneficial in the mornings or before/after a workout. Ready to check out the recipe? First, start by gathering all the ingredients required:
- brewed coffee
- Naked Nutrition Chocolate Whey Protein Powder
- almond milk
- sweetener (optional)
- cacao nibs, for garnish (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender and process until smooth throughout.
The texture of the final beverage is so deliciously frothy and foamy! Also, Naked Whey Protein offers an impressive 25 grams of protein and 5.9 grams of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) per serving. Talk about a health-boosting drink!
If you’d like, you can top with some cacao nibs as a garnish and enjoy!
Did you know that Chocolate Naked Whey originates from cows on small California dairy farms that are grass-fed year-round and raised without growth hormones? Grass-fed whey is associated with a number of health benefits, including:
- maintaining lean muscle mass thanks to the high levels of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs)
- boosting the immune system thanks to compounds like beta-lactoglobulin, lactoferrin, and lysozyme
- promoting heart health thanks to higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids and CLA
Naked Whey has become an important part of my everyday routine. Not only are these protein powders perfect in drinks/shakes, they are also a great addition to energy balls, pancakes, smoothie bowls, baked goods and more. In addition to the Chocolate flavor, I also tried the Vanilla. It has such a delicious, fresh vanilla flavor. I really appreciate how easily the powder dissolves in liquid and the result is a smooth, homogeneous beverage. No clumps here!
