I'm always a hot cup of coffee gal first thing in the morning, but in the summer I do enjoy a good iced coffee or iced latte in the afternoons. I'm also more into plain coffee when it's hot, but for iced drinks I love to explore different flavors and yumminess. While I'd love to run to Starbucks daily, let's face it, the budget and schedule say heck no. So, I've always come up with my own iced coffee concoctions.
Recently BiPro sent me a tub of their Limited Edition Cafe Latte flavor. Oh, the fun I've had with it! If you watch my IG Stories you've seen all of the yummy iced protein lattes I've enjoyed. I promised recipes, and recipes I've got! 3 in fact...
Coconut Dream Iced Protein Latte
This Coconut Iced Protein Latte is definitely a treat. It's so yummy, but still clean and gluten-free. It's also about 250 calories, 21 grams of protein, and 9 grams of carbs. Not a bad swap for a Starbucks run in a pinch.
1/2 cup cold coffee
1 cup So Delicious Unsweetened Vanilla Coconut Milk
1 scoop BiPro Cafe Latte Whey Protein Isolate
2 Tablespoons So Delicious Culinary Coconut Milk (my new obsession)
stevia to taste (optional, I prefer no sweetener here, the bipro has stevia)
2 Tablespoons So Delicious CocoWhip
sprinkle of fine shredded coconut
Pour the cold coffee in a glass over ice. Put the coconut milk, protein powder, and culinary coconut milk into a blender bottle and shake well. Pour over the coffee. Top with CocoWhip and sprinkle on the shredded coconut.
If you're more of a vanilla latte fan, try...
Vanilla Iced Protein Latte
I shared this recipe over on my Instagram page already, but I'll put it here too so it's easier to find!
Such a yummy treat! This only has 165 calories and 6 grams carbs. For a plain latte treat and even lower calorie recipe, try...
Protein+ Iced Protein LatteThis recipe is the one I have most days. It's about 160 calories, 2 grams carbs, and has the added great for me bonus of collagen. Such a perfect afternoon treat without breaking the (calorie/carb) bank.
1/2 cup cold coffee
1 cup Unsweetened CashewMilk
1 scoop Caffe Latte BiPro
2 Tablespoons collagen powder
stevia to taste (optional. I prefer no sweetener)
Let me know if you try them!
