I walked in the door after work yesterday, tired, hot and kind of hungry, so I pulled out a container of protein powder (although what I really wanted was a big plate of cheese and crackers) and was about to mix up a scoop of it with water (which is what I would usually do while at work and need a quick snack) when it occurred to me that I was at home and could make something a lot more exciting than just a watery protein drink.
Remembering the coffee ice cubes I had frozen from leftover coffee, I grabbed a few of those (be careful, they stain), the almond milk and vanilla, tossed it all in the blender and in seconds I had a cold glass of creamy, blended iced coffee which was the perfect pick-me-up on a hot day after a long week. If you have any sugar-free syrup that you use in your coffee (which I don't, since I usually drink it black) then that might be a nice addition, too.
And the best part is that it only has 135 calories and 1 gram of sugar. Not bad for a snack to tide you over until dinner!
