Mike and I have been meaning to use up the rest of the CLICK espresso protein drink powder that we have because honestly, we don't really like it! If it didn't have an almost unbearable aftertaste it would be great, but we can't get past the taste of the artificial sweetener. I guess we need to find a new protein powder!
I came across this recipe and knew that it would be the perfect way to use up some of the powder! We didn't feel like going to the grocery store so we improvised and used what we had at the house. The recipe below was enough for two medium-sized portions.
2 packets of Rich Milk Chocolate Carnation Instant Breakfast
3/4 cup 2% milk
2 cups vanilla ice cream
1 1/2 scoops of CLICK espresso protein drink mix (I'm assuming this is about 2 or 3 tablespoons)
1 1/2 cups of ice
Now don't worry if you don't have Carnation Instant Breakfast or CLICK, because the original recipe called for hot chocolate mix and instant coffee granules instead. If you wanted it to be a little bit healthier, I'm sure this would taste great without the ice cream too. You might just need to use some more ice cubes.
We combined all of the ingredients in our blender and blended until smooth.
Kind of cool looking
Our new finishers cups from the duathlon were perfect for this treat!
My new cup!
Perfect for a milkshake
We both LOVED this! It actually covered up the aftertaste from the CLICK protein drink powder extremely well. Mike said that he could taste it a little bit, but it was not as strong as usual because of all the other ingredients. We both love mocha flavored drinks so this hit the spot!
