Low Carb Frappuccinos


Low Carb Coffee Frappaccino

Coffee has become a better friend than ever. I’ve adjusted my schedule quite drastically and I now get up outrageously early so that I can go to the gym before my morning classes hit. While this night owl still gets used to getting up while it’s still dark, coffee has become a staple.

Hot or cold, it’s a blessing.

However, currently my favourite way to enjoy it is as a post-workout breakfast…and yes, protein in the shake and whipped cream on top. I’m that girl. Serves 2.

Low Carb Frappaccino

Low Carb Frappuccino

  1. 2 cups almond milk, unsweetened
  2. 1 tbsp. heavy cream (opt)
  3. 8 stevia drops*
  4. 1 tbsp. instant coffee
  5. 1 scoop of whey protein, unsweetened
  6. 1 tray of ice
  7. Cinnamon and nutmeg, to taste**

*I used vanilla flavoured NuNaturals – I use this for everything, no joke

**Or you can use these spices just for a pretty dusting on top of the shake

Blend everything in a high speed blender. Pour into two glasses, top with whipped cream (optional for you – necessary for me!) and serve.

Coffee Frappaccino

This recipe can be made vegan as well, simply omit the cream and use a plant based protein instead of whey.

Are you a coffee fan? What do you like better – hot or cold?

Vegan Coconut Chai Smoothie


Coconut Chai Smoothie Recipe

It’s amazing what a few spices can do. They can take the most boring food and make it extraordinary…think about how bland everything would be without salt. Really blaaaaaaaa….nd.
