Andrea, You Are An Angel

Andrea, whoever you are, thank you so much for you comment on this post.  I finally got around to trying your frappucino recipe today and LOVE it!  I would have emailed you instead of making this big production of a thank you, but there was no contact information/link on your comment.

You guys, she said to put 1 scoop chocolate protein powder, 1/2 to 3/4 cup cold coffee and a handful of ice cubes in the blender.  Follow her instructions, she is SO on to something.  I am going to save a fortune in frappucino's!  Not to mention it is less fat and sugar than my usual frapp.

Hope you are enjoying your Memorial Day Weekend!  Or for you non-U.S. residents, I hope you are enjoying your regular weekend.

Have a fab evening.  Stay tuned, tomorrow will be a recipe post and here's a hint... there will be alot of red in the photos.  Any guesses as to the recipe???

I always blend my iced coffee/frappucino (to make it think & foamy) -- but the protein powder?? Sheer genius!!!! -- thanks Liz thanks Andrea!!!!!

I am definitely going to tell Eric about this frappachino recipe- he loves those! I used to also but I can't do coffee anymore, but I can imagine it would be delicious!

@agnes, i love techno gadgets but had never before noticed the "ice crush" button on my blender before, is that sad???? my kitchen is pretty low-tech, i guess it was just my expectation that i would not be able to crush ice, so i hadn't tried to make a frapp at home before. silly me!

@kelly, it would still be good without coffee i bet :)

@afg thanks, i thought it was time for a change, and i like that this looks "cleaner."

@cammy, i just need to take my final pics now that the recipe has finished it's little "waiting time", then on to posting!

You are ever so welcome and honestly you just made my day with your thank you post!!! I am so glad you like it! I always have a hard time getting enough protein without going over my calorie limit! I wouldn't make it without my protein powder!!
