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.
