I stumbled across a recipe a couple weeks ago that I’ve been waiting to try. It was for Iced Coffee and looked DELICIOUS. I made few tweaks to make it fat loss friendly and then had to share it with y’all. SERIOUSLY good, seriously easy, and meets my nutrition goals. Triple win!
32 oz double strength brewed coffee (chilled)
32 oz. UNSWEETENED Vanilla Almond Milk
4 packets Stevia in the Raw (or natural sweetener of your choice). (This is optional if you don’t like sweetener, and for some of you, you may want to add more.
Chocolate Protein Powder
Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1. Brew 32 oz DOUBLE STRENGTH coffee and then chill. I put mine in the freezer for around 45 minutes.
2. Once cold, add in 32 oz. unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
3. Add in four packets Stevia in the Raw (or sweetener of your choice)
***At this point, I put mine in the fridge until I’m ready to drink it. When I’m ready for a glass, this is how I prepare it:
1- Pour a glass about 2/3 full of the refrigerated iced coffee mixture
2- Add half a scoop chocolate protein powder
3- Shake in unsweetened cocoa powder to taste (Note: If you are used to really sweet stuff, you may want to go light on this at first. it is NOT sweetened)
4- Stir. I use a fork, but you could shake in a jar with a lid or blend. I hate to dirty up dishes, so I just use a fork.
5- Add ice and a straw and enjoy!
I’ve had a glass of this every afternoon now for three days in a row and I am in LOVE.
When I have to go back to work I plan to take a jar of this and then add in the protein powder and cocoa, shake and drink.
