Today I woke up feeling run down…and ten minutes after my alarm clock, so I opted for this protein frappe. It is less than 200 calories with 12 grams of protein. All it takes is five minutes. The trick to making this quickly is having cooled coffee on hand in your refrigerator and frozen bananas in your freezer. I use Defense Nutrition’s Warrior Whey protein. It is all natural, gluten free, low glycemic, and best of all has no added sugar! I purchase it off Amazon for about $25 per jar, click here if you are interested in the product!
For the almond milk, I use Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla. Any “milk” would work. Coconut milk is delicious in this frappe as well. But I try and use almond milk for the calcium since I do not drink dairy milk.
If you are making this post workout, feel free to add an extra scoop of protein powder, just be mindful that you will be adding 75 calories.
I drank this shake at 7:45 this morning and I felt full and satisfied until lunch time (which was about 12:15 today).
