Summer Time Protein Frappes

Now that we’re finally seeing some sunshine in the UK I’ve been craving a nice ice cold Frappe from Starbucks. But as I’m sure you’ll understand they are filled with sugar and cream and just no good if you’re watching your macros.

Last month I was also lucky enough to have P-Fit  send me out the Vanilla Ice Cream Protein Powder to try . If you guys haven’t heard of them go check out their website. You answer a few simple questions and they work out the best protein for you. Choose your flavour and its delivered to your door. The thing that caught my attention is that they use all natural flavourings and sweeteners. I usually don’t opt for flavoured protein powders (I’m sure you will notice I use unflavoured protein for most of my recipes) as most chemical sweeteners don’t sit well in my stomach.

I had a play around in the kitchen because I wanted to have something more excited than a basic protein shake and as I said I’ve been craving Frappes. After many many tester Frappes I’ve perfected three awesome summer time Frappe options: Chocolate Mint, Strawberry Cheesecake and Lemon Blueberry.

Check out the video below to see how just a few ingredients can take the good old staple protein shake to the next level.

Alternative 1: You can substitute the almond milk for any milk of your choice, just remember it will affect the macros.

Alternative 2: You can substitute the frozen lemon zest for fresh but I always keep frozen zest in the freezer as its handy for dressings, curries and desserts.
