hot drink w/protein powder???

I love making a mocha frapp with my chocolate protein powder (scoop chocolate protein powder, some ice, some cold coffee then blend). But I've been wondering if I could make a hot drink with it? Like hot water, hot coffee and a scoop of protein powder. Does anyone know if this would work?

Rachel:

The only issue with hot protein powder drinks is that the powder may form clumps when heated. I would mix a paste of it in cold or warm water first to dissolve it, then add it to your other ingredients and heat them all together.

Or, you could mix it all up in a blender ball shaker, then heat. Have you seen those? (Google under "blender ball bottle") -- the wire ball kind of acts as a whisk and blends drinks better than anything I have tried before. The shaker can also be used to whisk/blend eggs too!

I make what I call "protein coffee". I've never had a problem with lumping.

1 cup coffee
cream to taste
sweetener to taste
dash SF syrup (caramel is a favorite)
1 scoop of vanilla protein shake mix (or plain)

Mix it all in a blender.

If you really want to be decadent, add homemade whipped cream on top.

I think you could add protein powder to hot chocolate, too..

I believe that high heat denatures the protein in protein powders so be careful with getting it too hot. A few years ago I had surgery and had to use protein powder a lot and I found out this was a big issue. I wasn't getting the protein I needed because I was zapping it in the microwave in hot beverages. Who knew??
