Vegan Mocha Protein Shake
Morecambe and Wise, Fish & Chips, Jack and Vera Duckworth. Some things just go together and what pair is more perfectly partnered than coffee and cycling? Espresso to start, Cappuccino and cake to keep you going and Americano’s to round things off. Nothing can bring out your inner Fausto Coppi than a delicate cup of coffee.
We’ve partnered with Little’s, The Flavour Enthusiasts to help cement the coffee relationship. Our Devon neighbours have been making American style flavoured coffee for more than 25 years so they know their stuff.
To prove the point they’ve shared with us their recipe for Vegan Mocha Protein shake, a great post-ride drink that tastes as delicious as it looks. Originally published on their blog and created by Charley’s Health, this indulgent but healthy treat is full of natural sweetness and jam packed with energy, protein and flavour.
