Are you looking for a lower calorie substitute for your iced coffee addiction? Most iced coffees are loaded with sugar, fat and excess calories.
I used to be a huge starbucks and dunkin donuts coffee addict! I loved the experience of getting a hot or iced latte. I didn’t love the price or the high calorie count.
My drink, caramel macchiato, came in at 250 calories and 33 grams of sugar.
Then, I started making them at home – with flavored creamers. I saved some money, not so much on the calories or sugar content.
When I started losing weight, I replaced my coffee with green tea, no sugar needed. If you know me, you know I drink my tea daily. Or I would try adding my favorite protein powder to coffee, but it never turned out as good as I wanted it to be.
I developed the mindset of – It is either taking me closer to my goals or away from it.
However, I would still occasionally stray over to the drive thru line – testing out the latest seasonal flavors. SHHHH don’t tell my husband! He hates supporting the corporate chain franchises, so I always go in secret.
BUTTTTT….. last year, I found the ultimate replacement and I no longer need to go get my coffee fix.
Protein Iced Coffee – just add water and ice. Herbalife released their newest product, in October of last year and I am totally in love!
Here’s why I love it:
- High protein
- Low sugar
- Only 100 calories
- Very easy to make
- Simple to add some syrup to change the flavor
8 ounces water
2 scoops Herbalife protein coffee
Pour over ice
My favorite combinations:
Mocha flavor + mint extract
House blend + Walden Foods Caramel syrup
House blend + Walden Foods Caramel syrup and dash cinnamon
I like to drink my coffee either first thing in the morning or as an afternoon pick me up.
