I do love nice cold Frappuccino in a hot day when I am feeling brave because frappuccino’s for me are a fear food, especially if they are from Starbucks or any other coffee shop however, being the health and fitness freak that I am, I love making my own frappuccino at home by adding in less sugar, less fat and more protein. This is my recipe for a high-protein coffee light frappuccino.
- Two tablespoons of instant coffee (any brand)
- Half cup of Ice cubes
- 1 scoop of unflavoured protein powder (you can use flavoured, preferably chocolate to give it an extra taste)
- Half cup of maple or agave syrup for sweetness
- 1 cup of semi-skimmed or skimmed milk or alternatively soya/almond/rice milk etc… if you are vegan
Just simply put them all into a blender and blend for about 2 – 3 minutes. Pour it into a nice glass, pop a straw in and enjoy.
Optional: Personally, I would not add in whipped cream because of the calorie content but do go ahead and add it if you want and top it with either chocolate or caramel sauce.
This is so much better homemade than from Starbucks as it is so much cheaper. You probably have all the ingredients at home already so therefore, it is will not cost you anything. This frappuccino is a great pre or post-workout snack because of the protein content.
