For most of the day I cruise along at full speed ahead and get stuff done quickly and efficiently. I am a type A, high energy, slightly anal retentive type of person. I have lists, plans, and work well with a deadline. And then 3 PM hits and I crash hard! Seriously, it's like if my body isn't moving in the late afternoon I feel this intense need for a nap! I usually try to grab a cup of coffee and a healthy afternoon snack to help me refuel but I put together a healthy smoothie recipe that combines my coffee AND healthy afternoon snack all into one delicious drink!
Protein is a great energy source so this smoothie recipe includes AllWhites® 100% liquid egg whites. AllWhites Egg Whites make a great addition to your healthy smoothie recipe because they are loaded with protein, naturally fat-free, cholesterol-free, and an easy source of lean protein you can keep on hand in your refrigerator at all times. Using raw egg whites leaves you with a risk of Salmonella contamination but AllWhites® 100% liquid egg whites have been pasteurized and are totally safe to use in your smoothies. If you are looking for a healthy afternoon snack, just throw a few simple ingredients in your blender and enjoy! If you want to try this high protein snack for yourself, don’t forget to grab the $0.50 Off AllWhites Egg Whites coupon first!

NOTE: The recipe called for chocolate syrup but since I didn't have any on hand I just used 2 TBSP cocoa powder and it was delicious. You could also make homemade chocolate syrup if you feel inspired!
Mocha Cappuccino Protein Smoothie
- ⅓ cup AllWhites® egg whites
- ½ cup chilled brewed coffee
- ½ cup low-fat frozen yogurt
- 2 Tbsp. chocolate syrup
- 1 cup ice
- Combine AllWhites, coffee, yogurt and chocolate syrup in blender. Cover and blend on medium speed until smooth. Add ice; blend. Serve immediately.
