Protein coffee, also known as proffee, is all the rage on TikTok these days and I’m totally here for it! This tasty, caffeinated beverage is a fantastic way to add extra protein to your diet, which will help keep you full.

Another benefit? Proffee is generally low carb and keto friendly (depending on the protein shake or powder you select)! Plus, it’s made with just a couple of simple ingredients.


  • 1 cup (8 ounces) cold brew coffee *see note below
  • protein shake

Optional add ins/toppings:

  • Coffee syrups, sauces, whip cream, froth/foam, or spices (cinnamon, nutmeg or pumpkin pie spice are all yummy)!

Recipe notes:

24 Oz Tumbler:! You can also halve this recipe and use two 16 ounce tumblers or drinking glasses for a smaller drink. 

Coffee: make your own cold brew, get it at the grocery store (look near the coffee creamers). You can also use iced coffee or 1-2 shots of espresso over ice. Let hot brewed coffee cool completely before pouring it over ice if you go this route, I also suggest making it extra strong. (*Note: because espresso shots are small and super strong, pouring them over ice when they’re hot shouldn’t negatively affect the flavor of your drink).  

Protein: for simplicities sake, I’m using an OWYN brand dark chocolate protein shake here. You can use any protein you like though, and I recommend doing a little research before choosing one that’s right for you! 


  • Fill a 24 ounce tumbler halfway with ice (or halve the recipe and use two, 16 ounce glasses).
  • Pour cold brew coffee over ice.
  • Add protein shake to the tumbler and mix. (*Note, if you’re using protein powder instead of a bottled shake, I recommend using a milk frother or shaker bottle to combine the powder with a little milk or cream before adding it to your coffee. This will help to prevent clumping).
  • Add desired syrups, sauces, creamers, whip topping or spices (like cinnamon or nutmeg) and enjoy!

Hot Proffee:

  • I suggest using protein powder in hot protein coffee (to help keep your drink warm)! Pour coffee into a mug, add a scoop of protein powder and use a milk frother to combine. Use add ins or toppings if desired!
