Wheypuccino: Whey Protein in Hot Coffee recipe !

A Whey Protein in Hot Coffee recipe is not original. Mixing them coffee has been around. The innovation comes from trying to make a cappuccino-like recipe.

“I created this recipe to improve my whey protein intake since my calorie percentage of proteins was a bit low and I wanted to raise it. The tip to put whey protein in my coffee came from Mr. Luis Gustavo Fortunato, a personal trainer from Marília-SP. The idea of mixing the greasy ingredients came for Dr. Priscila Franco, a nutrition specialist from the same city.

It took me just one sip to discover that this could be a healthy version of cappuccino and I decided to add the cinnamon and chocolate to the recipe.”

Wheypuccino: Whey Protein in Hot Coffee recipe


  • 3 tsp Sugar, or your favorite sweetener
  • 3 tsp of your favorite vanilla whey protein (I use Dymatize)
  • 1 pinch pure cocoa powder
  • 1 pinch cinammon
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp Ghee butter, or your choice of butter, even salt butter, if you like the exquisiteness.
  • 1 "doppio" hot Brazilian espresso coffee


  1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a small "doppio" coffee cup
  2. Drop the coconut oil and ghee over that mixture.
  3. Pour in the hot Brazilian espresso coffee
  4. Mix gently.
  5. Enjoy!

An option of adding a pinch of finely ground cloves is also viable and great to turn it into an all-around Brazilian coffee recipe. I also sometimes drop a few ground pieces of instant to give it a little hike of Robusta.


Hope you enjoy it!
