When my son was 6 weeks old, we discovered he had a severe dairy and soy intolerance after he began vomiting blood. And yes, that terrified me as much as it just terrified you.
Because I was (and am) breastfeeding, I suddenly found myself at a crossroad of deciding to go 100% dairy and soy free, or stop breastfeeding. I decided that I could do what I felt was best for Holt, and cold turkey quit all dairy and soy.
The awesome consequences of going dairy and soy free proved to be an insane amount of weightless super fast. Because of that, I began drinking meal replacement shakes–not as a meal replacement, but as a snack. I needed the calories because I was losing them too quickly, and my goal in breastfeeding wasn’t to lose weight, but to help my son grow.
So I did some research and found a vegan, chocolate meal replacement shake. I mixed it with vanilla almond milk, and then discovered a product I wish I would have known about six months ago.
Organo Coffee is quickly becoming one of my favorite products. Why? Because people, I’m lazy. Also, I discovered that dumping a pouch of decent coffee into anything makes everything better.
So I’m sharing a favorite quick “recipe” with you today. Easy, vegan (because the meal replacement shake I use is vegan, you can use whatever you want), and diverse. You can use this for weight loss, you can use this for weight gain, you can use this right after a workout for a protein boost. You can eat it for breakfast. And it takes less than a full 60 seconds to prepare.
Are you ready? This is probably the single most complex recipe you’ve ever heard of.
- 1 pouch Organo coffee (I use black)
- 3 scoops vegan, raw chocolate protein powder
- Vanilla almond milk
- Put everything in your shaker bottle and shake it up. Drink up!
See? Ridiculously complex. This is one major reason why Organo coffee is worth it. Not to mention that it’s cheaper by the cup than most of my K-Cups and I can toss it in my purse and make a cup of coffee out of anything.
I buy my Organo coffee from Helene’s Beans. You can click on her name to head over to her Facebook and grab your own box.
