Every morning I make coffee and I make some form of breakfast. As someone who rises when a lot of people are still getting in bed (2AM) time is of the essence. Two and one?? Nutrients and caffeine?? Say it's so. It's so.

I have this pin under "Desserts" on my Pinterest page.

Here is the original pin:

This is super easy and with the help of a magic bullet - easy to assemble a ton at one time.

You Will Need:

1 cup of coffee - cooled

1/2 cup milk of your choosing (I like coconut milk)

1 scoop chocolate protein powder

1/2 frozen banana

optional - one scoop of peanut butter powder.

With the PB 2 powder, this packs less than 200 calories and 19 grams of protein. Without the PB it's 175 calories and 16 grams of protein. Talk about a powerful breakfast!

Here's what you do. Pre-freeze your half bananas in bags. With the magic bullet, you can prep your breakfast days ahead.

Because there are 5 containers. It helps!

In a quick Google search, you can buy them just about anywhere. Here's Target's.

First, add your chilled coffee, milk and powders and mix. Store in refrigerator until you are ready to dine. Morning of, throw in the frozen half banana....

And mix thoroughly:

You could blend with more ice, but I don't think you need any. Yogi choice.

So easy. So good. So good for you. You could throw in some fresh spinach or kale in to green up your breakfast to get even more nutrients in you morning brew.
