Another way out to have your coffee in a more delicious and healthy way is to take it along with your daily protein shake.

Our List of 7 Best iced coffee protein shake recipes to help you lose weight:

1. Basic protein shake

If you are trying to lose that unnecessary body fat and build up some lean muscles, you can simply add a scoop full of your regular protein shake into your iced coffee. You need not add sugar as protein shake will do that for you. Here is the recipe for your basic protein shake:


  • A scoop of your protein shake
  • 1 tsp coffee
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 cup almond milk


  • Add all the ingredients together in your shaker and shake it well until all the things blend well. Another way out is to blend all the ingredients in a blender for a better and smooth coffee shake.

You can add low-fat milk, soy milk or any other variant to make it creamier and tastier as per your taste. But don’t forget it should be free from sugar and low in fat content.

2. Banana iced coffee protein shake

Bananas are one of the best energy boosters if you are going to do high-intensity workout today. A single banana can provide you enough energy for 90 minutes of your gym session.

To get a thick and frosty texture in your coffee shake, keep your bananas in the freezer for at least 20 minutes before blending.

You can prefer to add unsweetened almond milk to add extra creaminess in your banana iced protein shake. So here is the recipe you were waiting for:


  • 2 cups of ice
  • 3/4th cup of almond milk (unsweetened)
  • 1 cup cold brewed coffee (unsweetened)
  • 1 frozen banana (chopped and sliced)
  • 1 scoop of your regular protein powder


  • Add all the ingredients together in a blender and blend until the mixture turns out to be rich and smooth. You can add ice slowly instead of adding all at a time. You can also add plain Greek yogurt to make it more rich and thick.

3. Peanut butter coffee shake

This recipe can be a very good substitute to your old protein shake blend as we are going to add peanut butter in it instead of that protein powder scoop.

It tastes more like a shake than a smoothie and provides you great benefits of protein, healthy fats, and energy. Let’s have the recipe of peanut butter coffee shake:


  • 2 tbsp. peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • ½ cup ice
  • 1 frozen banana or 2 dates
  • Chia seeds (optional)


  • Put all the ingredients in the blender and blend them in a thick and smooth shake. You can add chia seeds at the top of the shake to enhance its nutritive value and taste.

4. Oats coffee shakes

I need not describe how beneficial oats are in losing weight. They will not only provide you satiety but will also provide you all the goodness of fiber, protein, and calcium.

They are an ideal cereal for all the diabetic and heart patients and are just amazing if you are looking forward to shredding those extra kilos.

In case you are a celiac patient avoid adding oats in your shake and go for other ingredients. You can add unsweetened almond milk to make it more rich and thick.

Here is the recipe for your oats coffee shakes:


  • 2 tbsp oats
  • 1 cup ice
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 tsp coffee
  • 1 scoop of your regular protein powder


  • Add all the ingredients in a blender and blend them fully until it turns out to be thick and frosty oats coffee shake. I relish it more in breakfast but you can have it in any of your meal.

5. Mocha smoothie

Mocha smoothie is best to be served in those hot summers days when you feel low and want something to boost up your energy. They are best to be taken at breakfast or before your gym. Here is my favorite recipe for a mocha smoothie just for you people:


  • ¾ cup almond milk (unsweetened)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 tbsp. ground espresso powder
  • ¼ tsp powdered cinnamon
  • 1 cup of ice cubes
  • 1 scoop of your regular protein powder


  • Place all the ingredients in your blender. Blend on full speed until it turns into a well-blended smoothie. Serve immediately and enjoy the great flavor of the mocha smoothie.

6. Iced mocha green smoothie

It is similar to our above-given recipe but contains dates and greens to add more flavor into it and enhance its nutritive value. This smoothie provides you a blend of all the antioxidants and other nutrients you were craving for.

I found it great in taste and nutritive enough to provide me all the essential nutrients.

The recipe for your iced mocha green smoothie:


  • A handful of spinach and kale
  • ½ cup almond milk (unsweetened)
  • 1 cup of coffee at room temperature
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 tbsp. of cocoa
  • 1 scoop of your regular protein powder
  • 1 cup ice


  • Blend all the ingredients together in your high power blender at full speed until it gets into a thick smoothie. Serve it chilled and enjoy it in any of your meal.

7. Vanilla latte protein smoothie

Who does not like vanilla flavor? Its light, creamy and velvety texture just feels amazing on your taste buds. This recipe is very close to my heart as I am a hardcore vanilla lover.

It is not a compulsion that regular your coffee needs to be brown and rich. If you don’t like strong coffee flavor then this recipe is best suitable for you. This recipe has more vanilla flavor and contains Greek yogurt and your regular protein powder. So here is our last recipe for this list:


  • 1 cup almond milk (unsweetened)
  • 1 scoop of your vanilla protein shake
  • ½ frozen banana
  • 1 tsp. espresso powder or instant coffee powder
