Missing the flavors of tiramisu on your diet? Try our Tiramisu Protein Shake! This delicious drink recipe is packed with healthy macros, super easy to make with ingredients you probably already have, and will give you a boost!
Since we’re using rolled oats and ice for this one you’re going to need a blender like this to fully incorporate everything.
Add right into your blender 3/4 cup of unsweetened milk substitute, 1 teaspoon of instant coffee, 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 2 tablespoons of flaxseed meal, 1/2 cup of rolled oats, 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1 scoop of a chocolate protein powder, 1/4 teaspoon of butter extract, 1/2 teaspoon of rum extract, 1 container of a coffee or mocha flavored Greek yogurt, and 1/2 cup of ice.
Did you know that flaxseed meal is a great cheap source of healthy fats, fiber, and protein?
Blend all of those ingredients together until you have your tiramisu protein shake!
Pour your shake into your favorite glass and optionally top it! I topped mine with some whipped cream and cocoa powder today.

Why instant coffee? Instant coffee will give it some flavor, compliment the chocolate, and give you a nice boost! Although this is brand dependent, every teaspoon of instant coffee has around 75-100mg of caffeine in it.

I am not a big fan of flax seed. Do the other ingredients mask its taste or can I leave that out? Is flax seed one off those things you eventually acquire a taste for after retrying over time?
This and the Red Velvet Pudding seemed to have a really rough ‘bite’ to it. I would think that’s coming from the extracts, but the Pudding doesn’t use them.
Maybe its the instant coffee? I don’t drink coffee so maybe I’m not used to the taste? Or maybe I’m doing something wrong. =/
