History

I’d been dreaming of a wholesome, high-protein iced coffee every Saturday morning after my long runs, which range from 18 to 30 km, depending on the weekend. One day, I’m not quite sure why, I finally came up with the idea for this recipe. I’d only just set foot in the house after running 22 km. I was thirsty, and hungry as well. With no added refined sugar, this iced coffee latte will be this summer’s smash hit at American and Canadian coffeehouse chains. In fact, it has everything it takes to steal the show because it’s high in protein, making it an excellent choice for post-workout recovery.

I usually take my coffee without sugar but with this one, I find the caramel date puree (again with no added sugar) gives it unique character. If you prefer vanilla, try it with the vanilla date puree, or you could also make it with the chocolate one. If you don’t want that little added flavour, go for the original date puree.

Believe it or not, ever since I created this recipe, I can’t wait to get home after a long run… so I can sit and savour my iced coffeeski. Let me know what you think, and enjoy the boost you’ll get from this sports recovery drink!

Storage

  •  Ideally, it’s best to drink it right away.

FAQ

Where can I buy Madame Labriski date puree?

At IGA, Rachelle Béry, Marché Tradition and Bonichoix grocery stores across Quebec. My purees contain no preservatives and can be found in the fruit and vegetable section (yes, dates are fruit) near the pre-cut fruit and vegetables. If you can’t find them, simply ask a member of staff!

What can I use as a substitute for plant-based protein powder?

When I use protein powder, it’s usually to increase the amount of protein. Every protein powder is different. It’s therefore different for each recipe. In general, I’d say give it a try…

The recipe calls for a plant-based beverage, can I use regular cow’s milk instead?

Yes, always.
