Are you an iced coffee person? Year round, I still want my two cups of hot coffee first thing in the morning. It actually only ends up being about 1.5 cups of hot coffee since I don’t drink the full cup of either.
Mid-morning when the weather gets a bit warmer, I love an iced coffee. It helps stave off hunger until lunch time and it just tastes delicious.
I don’t have the ability or desire to go buy one but I think if you try this method you will agree that it is just as good and maybe even better. Plus, you save lots of money and calories.
Yum! Look at that beautiful color!
I love it in a mason jar with a straw but I also love it in a plastic tumbler with lid and straw.
You need: a half of a Premier protein vanilla (Some people like the caramel flavor, but I prefer the vanilla. I do not like their coffee flavor, by the way.)
Warning: I did not like it with two sticks of instant coffee. So, my directions are to simply empty one stick into your cup and about half of the amount of water shown. I probably use about 2 tablespoons. Either stir or use a little frother combine water and coffee. If you have the Mason jar lid, you could also shake it vigorously.
Add ice, pour in half of the protein shake, and you are done!
The protein shakes are about $8 for a 4 pack in my grocery store. Since I only use half at a time, this makes a very inexpensive coffee drink. Also, I bought the instant sticks on Amazon but you can also just use a container of instant granules.
Let me know if you try this or have other ideas!
