Coffee Lovers Protein Packed Recipes Just For You

I made a coffee version of the Protein Balls I made the other day. I used Chike High Protein Iced Coffee. If you haven't tried it I highly recommend it. My favorite is the Mocha flavor. It's great with water but I prefer it with milk and a little ice and whizzed in the blender like a frappe (better than anything at Starbucks) and if you get your hands on some be sure to try the Protein Balls or one of these other fun recipes on the blog using it.

Shelly's Mocha Protein Balls

1/4 cup Quick Cook Oatmeal, dry
1/4 cup Chike High Protein Iced Coffee Protein Powder
1/4 cup Non-Fat Dry Milk, powder
1/4 cup Coconut Flour
2 Tablespoons Almond Butter
1/4 cup Sugar Free Torani Syrup (any will do but I used SF Vanilla)

Mix till well combined and sticky dough forms. You may have to adjust slightly if your almond butter is looser (I used fresh ground) just add a little more protein powder (any flavor will work) or if it's drier, add a little more SF syrup. Shape into quarter sized balls. Store in the fridge or freezer and pop out a few minutes to thaw before eating. Makes 14-18.

Ok, you convinced me to buy the Chike. I ordered from Amazon this evening. Gotta love Amazon Prime!
