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 🙂
