Iced Cappuccino Protein Smoothie Recipe

Ingredients Watermarked PicMonkey Banner

My friends and family will tell you that I am a picky eater.  So, when I say something is delicious, that says a lot!

In my {humble} opinion, this iced cappuccino drink is just as delicious as something you would buy at Starbucks or Tim Horton’s and I’m sure it’s a lot healthier.

FYI, I have absolutely no affiliation with Bolthouse Farms, I just happen to love their Perfectly Protein Mocha Cappuccino drink. I buy at least 2 bottles a week.

I don’t drink coffee, tea or milk on a regular basis so this protein drink is a way for me to get a lot of nutrients, protein and calcium all in one shot, plus it’s very filling.

When I am teaching, I bring this in a reusable bottle filled with a ratio of about two thirds cappuccino to one third milk.

When I am home for lunch, I use my Magic Bullet to make this Iced Cappuccino Protein Smoothie.

Ingredients Zoom WM

 

Four ingredients and a blender, that’s all you need!

 Ingredients BEV WM Numbered

Ingredients

  1. Ice cubes (I use 2)
  2. Flavoured coffee creamer (the one I like is Caramel Macchiato)
  3. Milk (any kind, even chocolate milk would work)
  4. Perfectly Protein Mocha Cappuccino drink

Instructions

* remember, I use a Magic Bullet, so adjust quantities according to your blender’s size

  • Fill blender cup approximately 2/3rds full with Cappuccino drink.
  • Add approximately 1/4 cup of flavoured creamer and two ice cubes.
  • Fill the rest of way with milk until it is just above the cup handle.
  • Blend or pulse until the ice stops grinding.

(I wish I had some bright, beautifully styled photos of the finished product but it has been a rainy, overcast week so far and I just couldn’t wait any longer! By the time I discovered the photos were dark, I had already “consumed” my photo subject!!!)

In Canada, you can find this drink with the refrigerated salad dressings in all major grocery chain stores.

If you live in the United States, it looks like you have even more flavour options within the protein line of Bolthouse Farms drinks. Lucky you!

Will you be making your own iced cappuccino smoothie any time soon? Do you have any great recipes that I should check out?

  2. I didn't know Bolthouse had a mocha cappuccino! I'm totally going to have to look for that. I drink (probably way too much) coffee, and am always trying to find ways to make it healthier.
