Vegan Cafe-ccinos

Vegan Cafe-ccino (Two Recipes)

IMG_9072I bet you are wondering, what in the world is a cafe-ccino?  The best way to describe it, would be that it is a vegan protein based coffee smoothie. I came up with it after craving a Frappaccino one day.  I use to be very addicted to Starbucks Frappaccinos but with the high price tag and equally high sugar content, it all had to stop. I needed to make a drink that would satisfy my cravings and at the same time provide me with extra nutrients. After a few trials with the blender, the cafe-chino was born!

*Note: I happen to use a pea based organic vegan protein powder. This is due to the fact that we have soy allergies in the house.  Please use the brand that works best for your family as each family has different dietary needs and restrictions.
