CHOCOLATE PROTEIN FRAPPUCCINO

HELLO everyone! I am so sorry for not posting last week, but I had mid terms and alllll that jazz going on and needed to focus and then de stress over the weekend! Which I totally did, thank you retail therapy and green tea. (And chai tea of course, my at home recipe is my fav right now- ICED VANILLA CHAI LATTE (90 CALS + VEGAN!) )

Anyways, I have been focusing on incorporating more protein into my diet recently to help keep my munchies at bay by keeping me full for longer. Plus being a veg head I tend to gravitate away from protein rich foods- unless it`s spinach or almonds, I can go hard on both honestly. *Side note- The other day I told my mom I could not wait to make this kale salad concoction thing and needless to say my mom thinks it is so weird I get so pumped for foods notorious for hate like spinach, but “a girl wants what a girl wants when she wants it.” -Jackie Burkhart

ANYWAYS to the recipe alreadyyyy! This is ultimately so delicious and actually doesn`t involve any coffee like a typical frappuccino. It does however give you  bomb chocolate flavor that is packed with plant based protein. You definitely need a blender that is strong and good for blending ice to give you the consistency of a frappe. Like a blender that really knows its purpose ya feel, the purpose to blend ROCKS if I ask for it. BOSS BLENDING. I have mentioned before I use this one Nutri Ninja Ninja Blender Duo with Auto-iQ (BL642) and I love it!

This is a great morning drink, pre OR post work out drink, AND I am going to put a side recipe to make it taste more like a Wendys frosty if you want more of a treat! Hope everyone enjoys the recipe and like this if you want more protein recipes! Before I go, I am going to be starting a “College Series” of recipes, tips, workouts and more all on maintaining a healthy lifestyle while in college and have a ton of fun posts coming up that I seriously cannot wait to share! So everyone stay tuned for my “College Series” of blog posts!!

xo, Chelsea

Ingredients:

*FOR A FROSTY TASTE-If you want to make this more of a sweet treat than a protein drink, add in 2-3 spoonfuls of Cream of Coconut and less ice. It makes it so amazingly sweet and smooth.

HOW TO-

Place all ingredients into your blender, adding the ice until you get that frappe consistency, I like it thick so I add more ice but it is totally up to you. Pour and ENJOY! (If you are wondering about that bomb a** drizzle in the glass, I lined it with blackstrap molasses- Wholesomes Sweetners – Organic Molasses, 16 oz liquid for a nice lil twist!)
