Coffee smoothies are a thing and now in Miami

Coffee and protein smoothie for the workout crowd who can't get going (Handout)

Call it the frappuccino fighter.

For those who can’t decide between coffee and a smoothie in the morning, here’s a way to satisfy both the workout crowd and the those who need a morning boost.

Smoothie King has begun selling coffee smoothies, each packing a caffeine punch and as much as 30 grams of protein in a 20-ounce cup.

“Flipping the switch can be hard in the morning, but not anymore,” said Rocky Gettys, Vice President of Product Development for Smoothie King.

The smoothies, which range from 370 to 430 calories, are available in four flavors: Almond mocha, vanilla, raspberry mocha and cinnamon latte. All of them used cold-brew coffee in the mix.

The smoothies range are available at all 790 Smoothie King locations, including in Miami.
