BLOC coach Andrew Jackson shares his go-to breakfast smoothie recipe with us.
“I used to use this for my breakfast routine for quite a while. Delicious and a pretty good macro profile. Best for the AM due to the caffeine from coffee and cocoa.”
Double the recipe for 1000 calories. Alternatively, add milk to get to desired calories.
What you’ll need:
1 1/2 cup room-temperature or cold coffee (make this the night before)
1 large frozen banana
1 cup ice
1 heaping Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa
2 scoop chocolate whey protein powder (20g protein/scoop)
1/4 cup halved walnuts
How to make it: Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until you hit your desired consistency. If you want a thicker shake, use 2 cups of ice.

EDITORS NOTE: The carb and fat content can vary depending on the protein powder you use, and of course whether you add milk. I prefer a whey isolate which has no carbs and very little fat. I used Impact Whey Isolate from MyProtein (“Chocolate Smooth” flavor), worked great and it’s cheap!
