I was a freshman in college the first time I had cup of coffee. My best friend and I had a break between classes and she suggested some coffee to help prepare us for our next class. I remember standing at the counter of the coffee shop completely unsure of what to order. I asked her to order me the sweetest latte she could think of and from that moment on our coffee trips became one of my favorite memories of college. To this day I find myself at a coffee shop at least twice a week with a good book in my hands and a hot cup of coffee or seasonal latte. Being the coffee lover I’m always excited to try new creamer flavors and latte drinks. I recently tried the new Green Mountain Coffee Mocha Latte. It’s a great afternoon treat I’ve been indulging in lately. Last week I wanted to put a healthy twist to my latte by adding protein to my drink, providing me with a filling treat.
I used the latte drink to make ice cubes and then once frozen I added them to a blender along with half a cup of the latte, protein powder, and a banana. The banana helped give it some consistency along and the ice cubes turned it into a frosty protein latte.
