Coffee Protein Shake

2016-03-07 14.26.58This protein shake is a dream come true for coffee lovers like me. It’s a nice pick me up kind of drink mid day when you’re dragging or after a good workout.  A few months ago a friend posted this recipe from Love and Zest on Facebook and I’ve been hooked ever since. I can’t drink straight protein shakes like my husband does, I usually do some type of fruit smoothie with protein in it. However, this is now my go to recipe and I love it. I actually feel like I’m drinking a frappe from Starbucks, but way fewer calories and sugar. I use to make this shake in my blender, but for Mother’s day I received a Ninja and today I made it in the Ninja.  I have to say that the Ninja works way better than my old blender.It’s much faster and the clean up is easy too. I’m loving it so far!2016-05-09 11.53.50
