Where are my coffee lovers at? I have a new smoothie recipe for you that I think you will love! Now, you may be asking - Is coffee bad for you? Coffee has often received a bad reputation in the past but there are so many new studies that show that coffee may be more beneficial to our health then we once thought. Studies have shown that coffee may protect you from type 2 diabetes, heart attack, stroke, liver and Parkinson’s disease.
Those are some amazing benefits and I know that many of my coffee-loving clients will be excited to hear this news! Keep in mind that you need to still be mindful of your coffee consumption because too much of a good thing can be harmful. If you drink too much coffee, you could experience headaches, heartburn, anxiety, irregular heartbeats, insomnia, etc.
I believe that coffee can be beneficial for your health as long as you don’t drink too much daily. So when you enjoy this delicious iced coffee protein shake, take into account that this smoothie counts as one of your cups of coffee for the day.
If you already know you can’t tolerate coffee well but still want to try this recipe, I recommend you try Dandy Blend herbal coffee alternative. It is a great-tasting substitute for coffee without side effects that can come from regular coffee.
I hope you decide to ditch the Starbucks and give this healthy coffee smoothie a try!
