Let’s talk about Bowmar Nutrition protein coffee! Protein coffee is a simple and delicious way to enjoy protein and get in a quick meal. I wanted to make this blog to clarify what it is and what it isn’t. When our company launched protein hot chocolate and started to showcase the fact that you can enjoy protein in hot liquids, protein coffee started to rise in popularity. There has been increased confusion on the topic since then.
First, protein coffee is not a magic elixir that will make you skinny or burn extra calories. It is simply a yummy way to supplement your daily meal plan with protein if you do not get enough from whole foods alone. You need 1 to 1.2 grams of protein per 1 pound of lean body mass. For example, a 100 pound person at 20% body fat would need 80-96 grams of protein per day. If you are not getting that then supplementing with protein is a good idea.
Second, protein coffee will not make you fat. Mixing protein into your coffee will increase the calorie content in the drink. However, this will only make you gain weight if these additional calories cause you to be in a caloric surplus. Meaning, you are eating more calories than you burn in a day. Having a full scoop of Bowmar Nutrition protein to your coffee in the morning is like having 3 whole eggs in terms of protein content.
The easiest way to enjoy protein coffee at home is by first making the coffee (can be hot, cold, or iced) then add a scoop of any flavor protein. You can easily blend this together using our rapid mixer. The protein completely replaces any creamer or flavor shots. Then, enjoy!
If you are getting your coffee elsewhere, the easiest way to do that is by asking for a larger cup or bringing your own refillable cup. This leaves enough room at the top for the scoop of protein. You can enjoy this drink hot, iced, or with cold brew. Again, the best way to blend this is by using our rapid mixer. Once done blending just sip and enjoy!
