I was feeling creative this morning. I wasn’t hungry; only craved something cold to drink, but still wanted my caffeine fix. So I created this yummy concoction:
What I used:
Any kind of unsweetened almond milk (vanilla or original), 2 tsps of instant coffee, ice cubes (not pictured) and a scoop of my favourite vanilla protein powder (I use GNC’s brand pro performance isolate whey, also not pictured). Pop it all into my Magic Bullet and BAM! Deliciousness! It’s smooth, slightly slushy (think iced capp texture without the sugar-crazed taste), coffee flavoured and pure heaven! Bonus: the scoop of vanilla protein powder = 20g of protein to keep me full. Coffee AND breakfast all in one drink. Pure love!! 🙂 Cannot wait to make this throughout the warmer months!
Impulse buys of the day:
A new cosmetics bag (loving the snake skin print!), L’Oreal Paris Infallible lip colour in Kate’s Plum, Neutrogena Rapid Clear 2-in-1 Fight and Fade Gel (for those pesky, sporadic breakouts we all love so much *ha), and a NYX jumbo eye pencil in cottage cheese. I have YET to find it in milk. My quest continues…
I have this love/hate relationship with grocery shopping. If I’m in the mood to shop I don’t mind browsing the isles for interesting new finds and sales on items I buy regardless… but on the other hand, it’s so much work when you really think about it!
Some health picks this trip (minus Haagen-Dazs peanut butter chocolate ice cream Sarah and I will split!) Mmm.
