Cold Pressed Protein Vanilla Latte Recipe

Delicious Cold Pressed Protein Vanilla Latte Recipe

Enjoy a smooth and creamy cold vanilla latte without the jitters or the crash.

By adding protein to this vanilla latte, we’re blunting the blood sugar spike that ordinarily happens from drinking caffeine. And because we’re using protein to blunt the spike, that also means we’re steering clear of crashing and craving.

To turn this cold vanilla latte into a full-on Fab Four breakfast, this is what I’d do. In order to ensure I’m getting at least 30g of protein at my meal, I’d sauté some breakfast sausage and greens in ghee. I’d also add a small cup of coconut yogurt topped with chia seeds and berries. Boom – protein, fat, fiber and greens! Protein from the protein powder and sausage. Fat from the ghee and coconut yogurt. Fiber from the chia seeds. And greens from the sauteed greens. Bonus, antioxidant and polyphenol power from the berries. This would take me less than ten minutes! Most importantly, this would make a breakfast that would nourish my brain and body, ensure blood sugar stability, give me long-lasting energy, and keep me feeling full for 4-6 hours.

Whether you’re having this vanilla latte as a stand-alone drink that won’t spike your blood sugar or you’re turning it into a full Fab Four breakfast, I’m excited to arm you with a sip that’s creamy, rich and free from added sugars and all of the other junk you’ll commonly find in coffee shop lattes. Enjoy!

*Note: You may omit the almond milk by using more protein.


  1. Place the coffee grounds in a 2-quart French Press, add the water, and stir to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and let steep at room temperature for at least 12 hours or up to 1 day.
  2. Attach French Press lid and push grounds to the bottom of the pitcher.
  3. Transfer the strained coffee into a new pitcher. Cover and refrigerate until completely chilled, at least 2 hours or up to 5 days.
  4. For each cup of iced coffee, dilute the concentrate with an equal portion of almond milk or water.*
  5. To create the latte, use a hand-held frother or high-speed blender to combine the coffee and protein for a uniform consistency. Tip: Add liquid before adding in protein powder and blend on high until a foamy consistency forms.
  6. Pour the latte over ice and enjoy!

*If using Be Well by Kelly Vanilla Grass-fed Protein Powder, you can omit the almond milk and substitute water to dilute the coffee, and add an additional tablespoon of protein powder.
