Protein + Coffee = Gold

Hey guys. The other day I was playing around with my NutriBullet and came up with the best little frappaccino/protein shake EVER! After a morning workout I always struggle with the dilemma of trying to chug down both a protein shake and a cup of joe before heading out the door.

The solution? Mix them together! It’s amazing- tastes like a mixture between a Mocha Frapp and a Chocolate Smoothie. Here is the recipe I’ve come up with:

I would advise making your coffee extra strong for this- similar to espresso because you don’t want to water down the shake. Plus, you will only be able to use about 1/2 of a cup… and lets face it 1/2 a cup of regular coffee does nothing. ha. So after you have your brew, place 1/2 cup in the freezer for a few minutes to cool it down before you put it in the blender. If you have any extra you can always sip on that to give you a little buzz while you’re waiting for the rest to cool off.
Xanthum Gum can be found in the baking isle at the grocery store. A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY– USE SPARINGLY. I bought little individual serving size packets of them- and yet I still only use about 1/10 of the packet. For those of you who have never used it before- it’s basically just a thickening agent. If you’ve ever tried replicating your favorite recipe before and it’s come out flat– it’s likely that this is the small ingredient you are missing.
I’m currently loving this chocolate protein smoothie powder from Vega One — but pretty much any protein powder will do. There are some really great tasting ones out there such as Snickerdoodle and Peanut Butter from PEScience– but I am sensitive to certain milk proteins so I have to stick with Vegan Proteins for the most part. But hey- at least I’m sneaking in 2 servings of Veggies with this one. Bonus!
 I mix up a little PB2 on the side and add it on top with some FF whipped cream sometimes.
Just gives it a little more creaminess ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope y’all enjoy this as much as I am!
XO,
Abby
