Chocolate Coffee Protein Shake

My coffee consumption has increased quite a bit since I started hanging out with my current study buddies. (We generally all study alone but in the general vicinity of each other and then convene a day or two before exam days to drill everything under the sun.) I usually bring more than enough food for myself, so I keep them fed too, and they get me coffee, make me protein shakes/sandwiches, or buy me food. :O

I’m not actually too big on caffeine though, so my coffee consumption is a whole lot lower. It takes me about 5(?) days to get through a ~20 oz cup, so I took to blending a little into my smoothie each morning. :O It turned out really well and is especially useful for super-long days (helps me stay awake/keep focused)! I only have chocolate protein powder right now, but I imagine this would be great with vanilla as well. I need to find more sources of inexpensive and awesome protein powder.
