NTK Collagen Iced Coffee

NTK Collagen Iced Coffee

 Hi friends! I recently did a series of IGTV episodes on NTK drinks I enjoy throughout the day. Drink number 5 is iced coffee! This particular recipe is a combination of Starbucks medium roast iced coffee, Vital Protiens collagen powder and milk. 

If you are familiar with using collagen powder, you know that it will clump in a cold liquid. Which is why it is CRUCIAL to shake violently after all of the ingredients have been added, otherwise the vital proteins will congeal. It really is a great way to sneak protein and nutrients in to your day. The collagen powder turns the drink into a foamy coffee that also has protein! Win-win!

If you like iced coffee but caffeine gets you, you may consider making your own iced coffee with decaf coffee. I have found that pre-made decaf iced coffee is hard (if not impossible) to find. Which is why I used to make my own decaf cold brew. I wrote a whole blog post on how to make homemade cold brew and another on how I deal with caffeine. Recently, I got a mini cold brew container off amazon, and it has made this process even easier! If I can’t handle any caffeine that day but really want an iced coffee, I will use this to make my own cold brew. If you try this yourself, it is key to get COARSE GROUND coffee. I love the Decaf Coffee from Whole Foods. 

 

I drink decaf coffee first thing in the AM. In this last few years I’ve discovered I can’t do caffeine pre-breakfast. I’ve found that it gives me the jitters and makes me anxious, so decaf first thing it is! Midmorning, after I have enough food in my system and I’m ready for a caffeine boost, I enjoy a caffeinated beverage. For this drink, the Starbucks medium roast iced coffee is my favorite. I also like STOK brand. You can find both at most grocery stores. Without further ado, here’s my recipe for NTK Collagen Iced Coffee!
