Fact is, I have a difficult time getting all the protein I need for the day without also ending up with a lot of carbs and unhealthy fats. I know that this is partially due to just not planning beforehand and looking at what I'm eating that day, but the cycle is probably not going to break. I just don't have the energy for it right now.
Powercakes I found a recipe that FINALLY works. These are so good! Especially when topped with Cream Cheese Protein Frosting a la Truly Jess. Yep, I went there.
Moving on, I decided to make a protein microwave cake, with protein fudge. Oh gosh, I'm looking nutty right now aren't I?
Last but not least, the star of the show:
Better Than Starbucks Protein Frapp
I swear on my protein powder that this thing was better than anything Starbucks could offer. It's got little added sugar (and really, you could take those ingredients out) and has the potential to throw some greens in or customize however you want.
1/2 frozen banana
5-6 frozen coffee cubes (this is the key)
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
1 cup of milk (I chose 1/2 soy and 1/2 coconut)
Add ins: 1 tbsp dark chocolate chips and 1 tbsp shredded coconut and 1 tbsp of just peanuts peanut butter
Add banana and coffee cubes to blended with a little bit of the milk. Pulse and/or ice crush until this started to look frap like. Add the rest of the milk and protein powder and blend.
Add in whatever you want to make it your own.
I went with the pb just because I love it in smoothies, and the chocolate and coconuts because it's my favourite Starbucks drink! I think this will quickly become a new staple!
