these days, i could use a coffee IV drip!! getting up at 4:15am several times a week
is hard as heck calls for a boost of energy at times and caffeine is normally my go-to source. thankfully it doesn’t interfere with my 4 month old’s sleep schedule, whew.
i stopped by my neighborhood Walmart on my way home from the gym to pick up some Silk Almondmilk 96oz Unsweetened Original recently to make one of my fave low-calorie, dairy-free morning drinks! not only is Silk dairy-free, guys, but also free of soy, lactose, gluten, casein, egg and MSG, and GMOs. all my kids care about is taste, but i smile inside knowing i am filling their little growing bodies up with wholesome stuff. we are even “sneaking” in a healthy dose of vitamin E!
i’m a frappe fan for life. hot coffee is cool too but it’s good to switch things up on my taste buds every now and then. plus, this drink works way better on hot Houston mornings when i’m headed to get my workout in.
creamy frappes are the best frappes! ice chunks are not welcome here, booooo. i’ve learned that one of the easiest ways you can achieve maximum frappe thickness and creaminess (for any smoothie type drink, really) is by using frozen ingredients and a high-powered blender.
you can mix this drink up the night before, freeze it (i found these cool silicon trays recently), and pop the cubes in your blender the next morning. so convenient!
or you can just freeze the unsweetened almond milk all by itself and have the cubes ready to go for whatever flavor combo your taste buds are feeling at that moment.
pour in the remaining ingredients and blend, baby, blend.
top with your favorite dairy-free whipped topping and enjoy the goodness of Silk! this drink is a mere 71 calories and such a satisfying, low-sugar treat.
if you’re headed out, pop a lid on your cup and go do your thing! stop by your neighborhood Walmart for more Silk while you’re out 😉
