Usually, I have a What I Ate Wednesday post for you, but I just didn't take any pictures of food this week. I made a little something today that I wanted to share. It's not exactly food, but it is certainly tasty!
This afternoon, I came home needing some caffeine before Bible study. I knew I didn't want hot coffee, but I also didn't want a soda. That's where this Vanilla Protein Frapp came from.
- 1 1/2 cups of your favorite brewed coffee (cold brew, if you can)
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1/2 cup of milk
- Sweetener of your choice
Put all ingredients in the blender and mix until ice is broken up. Add more ice until at desired consistency.
I was interested to see how this would turn out, and I actually really liked it! It tasted like something you'd get from a coffee shop without the $5 price.
As you can see, this made enough to fill my 20-oz. tumbler twice! I certainly needed it, though, and enjoyed this afternoon treat. I used this protein powder that I found at Wal-mart, and I've gotta say, ithe flavor is enough to mask that protein-y taste. Good stuff!
Other alterations you could make: add a little (a very little!) vanilla extract, try a different flavor of protein powder, add/subtract some of the milk depending on your taste preferences. If you try this out, make sure to let me know what you think!
Question for you: What's your go-to drink/snack when you need an afternoon pick-me-up?
