SFV protein frappuccino

27 Mar

hey guys!  i’m dropping in with a quick recipe i just made up!  i don’t even want to talk about life right now because it stresses me out just thinking about it, but i figured you would appreciate this amazing protein shake i just whipped up!

i’ve been CRAVING a frappuccino since the first day it got warmer than 60 degrees.  frappuccinos were my staple in high school.. it didn’t matter that they were over 4 bucks a pop, i had no expenses!

well.. since i’m trying to watch my spending and my waistline, i decided to experiment at home, for a lot less money! hope you enjoy!

SFV protein frappaccino

makes one giant shake or two medium shakes

(whole shake: calories: 213, carbs: 14, fat: 2, protein: 30)

ingredients:

  • 1 C milk (i used skim)
  • 6-8 ice cubes
  • 1 scoop of protein (i used MRM whey – french vanilla)
  • 2 T instant coffee *
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1/4 t of xanthan and guar gum (optional)

instructions:

blend and enjoy! i didn’t use any sweetener, but you could def add some to make the shake appeal to you.

*i’m sure you could use cold coffee that has been brewed prior.  i would play with the milk:coffee ratio in that case.

 

hope you guys like this as much as i did! perfect for warmer weather and a lot easier on the wallet (and waistline!)

 

Q: does nice weather make you crave anything? me.. music by brand new/the starting line and fraps :)

    Hooray for breakfast tomorrow! I love coffee drinks, so this is awesome. You know what nice weather makes me crave? My favorite thing to do INTHEWHOLEWIDEWORLD! Day Drink outside. Nothing else says relaxing summer afternoon like a couple (cases) cold ones in the sun. Damn this summer is gonna be lame.
