Coffee yumminess protein shake - Fit Frappe review

I love coffee, in case you did not know.  I love the smell of it.  I love the taste of it.  Love it.  I only drink one cup of coffee a day, but I enjoy sipping on it hot or iced while praying in the morning.

And, I am a bit of a health nut, in case you did not know that either.  I frequently drink protein shakes after workouts, or as a quick meal supplement (I eat 5 times a day) when I am on the run.

So, I was so excited to try Big Train's Fit Frappe!  A protein shake and coffee in one.



Here is some information about Fit Frappe from Big Train's web site:
  • Versatile- can be served hot, iced or as a frozen frappé
  • Outrageously delicious, full flavored café style drink
  • Similar caffeine levels as coffee (100-280 mg) depending on flavor
  • Long lasting energy from protein using Calcium Caseinate
  • Excellent meal replacement
  • Gluten free
  • Very low sugar- less than 1g per 16oz serving
  • 5-6 net carbs

I have tried MANY protein shakes in many flavors.  And I have had some very bad ones and some very good ones and I will admit, the Fit Frappe is one of my favorites.  It has a creamy texture and the taste is great.  It did not have the usually "protein shake" flavor (if you have had protein shakes, you know what I am talking about!). The Mocha is super yummy, but it also comes in Vanilla Latte, Espresso, Chocolate, and Vanilla. I usually only have protein shakes in a blender with ice and I LOVED this one as a frozen drink. It could totally pass for an expensive coffee house frappucino.  You would not guess that it was a healthy protein shake that is only 130 calories (when made with water) and delivers 20 grams of protein!  I made mine with milk, and it was very satisfying.  For me, it is the perfect, after workout drink in the morning. I am interested to try the Espresso hot and see how it tastes . . . I will let you know!


Now, I am a purist, so I like my FitFrappe just the way it is, but you can find lots of great recipes here to make fun and flavorful protein drinks.

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part I

(I started writing this post months ago, but have not had time to refine it and finish it.  I have felt the need to hit "publish" lately though.  Maybe it is because Hope is too quickly approaching 12 months old and my desire to share it's sentiments would be lost soon. Or maybe it is because this week is the March for Life and the sacredness of life is before me in a precious little girl and I want to remember that, in words, here.  But whatever the reason, here is our story of seeking God's will and and being open to life.)

Shortlyafter we announced that we wereexpectingbaby Hope, I felt that I needed to share ourNFPstory.  Partially, it was because we had so many people say thingslike, "What a miracle!" or share stories of how people they knew were infertile, adopted and then had a baby of their own, thatI feltthat many people probably got the wrong idea about why we had three boys, waited a while and adopted and then found out we were expecting a baby wh…

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part 2

(You can read  Part 1 here

     So, by the time Andrew was 18 months old, we knew God was saying no to having more children at the time.  And, as mentioned before, He provided so much peace about it, that we knew we had discerned correctly.  Yet, even with that peace, I had to mourn the fact the we might not ever have any more children.  Yes, we were still open to life, of course, but from the time after Andrew’s birth, until today, we practiced NFP faithfully to avoid pregnancy.  And it took time to accept that we might not have any more children.  There were times when I would hold a friend’s new born baby and then go home and cry because I knew I might not ever know the joy of holding my own baby again.  We live in a community where life is celebrated and families are large.  Usually more than one friend is pregnant at a time.  In those early days, each pregnancy announcement was met with great joy for the friend, but often left me with an empty feeling.  I understood, in many way…

Got Hope?

She was born on a Tuesday during Primary season of the presidential election.  Once settled into my room, I remember the TV being on and the news was all about secured presidential nominations.  The following morning, I scrolled through my Facebook feed and there was a great deal of incredulity.  Despair and hopelessness even.  I quickly turned away from it and struggled to get out of the bed, to begin my c-section recovery.  I had a precious little baby, Hope, to take care of after all.  I couldn't get swept up in the emotions of the what is going on in our nation, in the upcoming election.



And since Hope's birth, there have been many crazy, hard to believe, tragic events.  And during that time, my main focus has been on this precious life, on Hope.  It has been amazing how focused I have been on Hope and my job as her mother.

I need to nurse Hope.

Help Hope grow. 

Love Hope.

Nurture Hope.

Cuddle Hope.

I need to hold on to Hope.
