Protein Frappucino

Delicious.. and HEALTHY
Delicious.. and HEALTHY

Now that it is almost summer here in Alaska (yes we consider 40 degrees and sunny summer! 🙂 ) I have been craving more frozen drinks again.   I always like the idea of Starbucks frappucinos but they are just WAY too sweet for me.  Not to mention all of the fat and calories which I would rather spend on FOOD then a drink!  So I started making these protein frappucinos to get the same type of drink but a LOT healthier!

Ingredients

  • 1 scoop protein powder (any flavor you like!)
  • 1 cup almond milk (or other milk)
  • 1 TBSP espresso powder
  • 1/2 TBSP xanthan gum ( optional but makes it thicker like a real frappucino)
  • Stevia to taste (Optional.. I don’t use)
  • Ice cubes (6-7 small or 4-5 large)
  • Whipped cream (optional)

Instructions

  1. Mix in a blender protein, ice, milk, espresso powder and xanthan gum.  If using xanthan gum mix a few extra seconds to let it fluff up the drink.
  2. Pour into fun jar or mug.
  3. Top with whipped cream!
  4. Enjoy!

This is a really simple and quick protein recipe that I like to use when I work out first thing in the morning.  Caffeine AND protein in ONE!  🙂
