Protein Coffee is a great way to start the day. It’s satisfying and helps increase your overall protein intake. You can’t even taste the protein powder in this recipe that can be made with milk or dairy-free.

  • Total Time: 4 minutes
  • Yield: 1 serving 1x


Units Scale
  • 6 ounces hot brewed coffee
  • 1 scoop of collagen protein
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk (use milk or creamer if you aren’t on a dairy-free diet)
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional


  1. Pour the coffee in a mug.
  2. Add a scoop of collagen protein to your brewed coffee.
  3. Stir until it’s blended in. 
  4. Add your choice of plant milk, sweetener, and vanilla extract (optional).
  5. Stir thoroughly and enjoy hot.


  1. Use decaffeinated coffee if you are sensitive to caffeine, or if you want to drink this later in the day.
  2. You can use whatever type of sweetener you like in this recipe. Or, if you like your coffee black, just leave it out.
