Caramel Coffee Protein Frappe

Posted in : Snack, Uncategorized on by : fivethumbsup Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Better than Starbucks in my opinion.  Yes, this homemade drink is so good I would rather have it than a frappe from Starbucks. Not only is it delicious, but it’s not as expensive and has to be better for you than those specialty drinks from coffee shops.  I know I only go to Starbucks when I have a gift card because I hate paying the crazy prices for their drinks.

This drink is a good pick me up in the middle of the day when you’re done drinking plain old coffee, but need a boost of caffeine to get you through the rest of your day.  I also like to make this when I notice coffee still in the pot from the morning instead of dumping it down the drain.

One thing you will need is a blender bottle.  Here is a picture of the one I use.  I also make my own caramel sauce and whipped cream,  but you can buy that all from the store.  If your worried about calories you can skip the whipped cream, but I enjoy it from time to time.

If you like specialty drinks from coffee shops, but don’t like the prices, try this out and save some money!

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup brewed coffee
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 2 Tbsp. caramel sauce (give or take)
  • Ice
  • Whipped cream

Directions:

  1. In a blender bottle add the coffee, almond milk, protein powder and caramel.
  2. Fill with ice and shake, until combined.
  3. Add some crushed ice into a nice glass.
  4. Pour into a glass and top with whipped cream.
  5. I put a few sprinkles on and a raspberry to make it look pretty. (optional)
