    Earl Grey protein smoothie!

    I drink a large mug or two of Earl Grey every morning. This morning I was on my second mug and had a goofy idea. I poured the hot tea, which had a teaspoon of coconut oil, a bit of honey and about a quarter cup of heavy cream in it, in the blender. I added a scoop of unsweetened chocolate whey protein powder and a tablespoon of full-fat coconut milk, liquified it, and voila! Frothy tea smoothie and I killed two birds with one blender!

    Funny, I just did this other day too! Except, I was leery of chocolate protein powder with early grey (glad to know it works!) so I used chai tea instead (I chilled it and added some almond milk and hwf). It was delicious! This kind of beverage has become my new go to. Liquid protein and fat without bazillions of carbs like most smoothies. Yay for us!

    I'll have to try this with my unflavoured protein powder. It sounds delish.

    You may have found a way for me to break my Starbucks Earl Grey Latte addiction. Bless you.

    I'll try it as Owly suggests too, as all I have is unflavored protein powder now. With a couple drops of vanilla perhaps. Can't wait to try. Thanks!

    I think unflavored would work fine! I only used half a scoop of my chocolate, and I was really just using it to make the drink creamy and sweet, not really impart flavor. I bet the unflavored will work great!

    I used chocolate because I bought 5 pounds of it! It does obliterate the Earl Grey flavor but it tastes fine. Next time I'll buy one pound of vanilla too!

    Oh my god, this sounds incredible! I am definitely trying it.

    Back in the non-Primal days I used to steep loose earl grey leaves in a cup for a couple of days to make a "concentrate" and then add that to vanilla ice cream in a blender. Good with chai and green tea too.
