For many of us, myself included, caffeine is part of a treasured daily ritual. I've found that having my morning coffee not just with my breakfast but in my breakfast has made a world of difference to give me a boost without giving me the jitters. Plus, it just tastes SO good when blended together with superfoods like maca, almond butter and vanilla! - Nicole Centeno, Founder & Co-CEO

Proffee is simply a combination of protein and coffee in one beverage. This way, you’ll reap the benefits of both ingredients. Let’s start with protein. Protein is important for muscle growth and maintenance. For this and many more reasons, protein is a great fill-you-up addition to have at any time of the day. The protein source found in the Coffee Frappé Smoothie is pea protein. Plant-based proteins can really equip you to go the extra mile because they don't easily weigh you down. Pea protein is also a good source of iron. Iron helps to prevent fatigue and low energy levels, which is important for people on the go. And when you couple protein with coffee, it enhances the nutritive benefit even more. Coffee is not just a morning beverage. It's a beverage that contains antioxidants. Antioxidants are compounds that help protect the cells of the body from damage. So are you beginning to see why proffee is so awesome?

Now if you’re someone who takes their exercise seriously, imagine how much your workout routine could benefit from adding proffee. The caffeine in the Coffee Frappé Smoothie may be a great pre-workout fuel that enhances both mental and physical performance. Here’s how. Caffeine, unlike protein, doesn't need to be digested by the body. It is rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream, giving the body a burst of energy. According to the Mayo Clinic, up to 400 milligrams of caffeine daily appears to be safe for most healthy adults (1). However, it's important to note that too much caffeine can result in insomnia, headaches, and a fast heart rate. To give you a visual, 400 milligrams of caffeine is equivalent to about 4 cups of freshly brewed coffee. The Coffee Frappé Smoothie comes in a 16 ounce (2 cup) container and contains a total of 150 mg of caffeine. Simply stated, it's safe for consumption for most healthy adults. This smoothie is serving a big impact in a small dose; we've got your back.

The Bottom Line:
Coffee added with choice plant-based protein gives the body an additional nutrient source for peak performance. There’s no need to sleep on it, the new Coffee Frappé Smoothie is a satisfying proffee beverage. Whether you’re just a bit busy, juggling several projects or conquering your entire world, try the Coffee Frappé Smoothie for a boost. We know you'll like it.
