    Note to self: Don't mix boiling hot coffee with protein powder unless you want a "scrambled eggs" kind of beverage.

    I still drank/chewed it down.

    The heat ruins the benefit of the powder as well.

    I've totally mixed the two! But I have to blend them with a hand mixer. Not a bad mix I have to say.

    If you mix it with the right chocolate mix (Optimum Nutrition Chocolate or Double Dutch i think..) and start mixing before the coffee touches the powder 1 + 1 = POWERFUL CAFFEINATED beverage.

    But it's a science I've done it, some times good sometimes looks like lumps da lumps. icon_smile.gif

    I've never mixed it with hot coffee but chocolate protein powder blended with coffee and ice tastes really good!

    My problem was that I was using one of these hotel "one cup" coffee makers where you put the paper cup below and the hot coffee drips right into the cup. I had the cup 1/2 full of protein powder and just let the hot liquid drip into it. Naturally it overcooked it right into place.

    I have mixed protein powder into coffee before, but it's usually cold coffee that I keep in the fridge. I never throw out good coffee. It's great in the morning and helps before the gym.

    Something completely different that I did the other day was...
    Organic soy milk in the blender.
    Turn blender on.
    Add fresh frozen spinach in copious amounts.
    Add vanilla protein powder (3 heaping scoops).
    Add raw old fashioned oatmeal.
    Blend until smooth.

    Quaff deeply of the 32oz yield.

    Hit the gym.

    It actually tastes pretty good. Since there isn't a lot of sugar, the taste is kind of a "vanilla spinach" flavor which I actually find pleasant and unoffensive. It's different, but I find it nice.

    I buy CoolBrew coffee at the local store (you can buy it online: http://www.coolbrew.com/). Two shots over ice with protein powder and chocolate milk and I'm ready to hit the gym!

    I buy coffee crystals for that. They make a shit cup of coffee (that is what my grinder and french press are for) but they are great for baking and mixing with protein powder.

    When mixed with protein powder you really don't notice the difference between real coffee and the mix.

    I do the same thing. The protein shake I drink before my workouts has coconut milk, two spoons of instant coffee, one spoon of cocoa powder, maple syrup, BCAA, and pure whey protein.

    That sounds really good, but I'd have to find a substitute for the maple syrup (not a fan). Thanks for sharing icon_smile.gif

    I though coffee was a nono if your trying to get in shape.

    I'd say go for it. I've made "chocolate milk" before, and that was awesome.

    As for the coffee- if heat kills it like some members have said before, ice the damn thing before serving.

    I've also read that caffeine does somewhat negate the benefits of creatine, and since my protein powder also incorporates creatine, I don't mix the two.

    I blend the two every morning with no problem. Add the coffee to the protein powder in a large cup and stir....great way to get your pre-work out shake.
