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)
- 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)
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 🙂
