I admit that I often get in a rut when it comes to food items. This morning a light bulb appeared above my head, just like it does in cartoons.
I decided to do something a little different, at least for me with my coffee. instead of doing my normal routine, which I had already done this morning, I’d make coffee and use it with vanilla protein powder and soy milk. I didn’t use any sugar free syrup, because I know that with the Fit Frappe Vanilla and unsweetened Silk Soy milk, it has a fairly sweet taste on its own.
So here is what I did…
I made 12 ounces of Dunkin Donuts Cinnamon Bun coffee.
The directions on the coffee says to use a heaping tablespoon of coffee grounds for every six ounces of water. I use a 3/4 measuring cup to measure the water I put into the coffee maker. Two of these is 12 ounces. I measured six ounces of soy milk and put in a Pyrex cup in the microwave.
This takes planning, especially as a person who is blind. I had everything measured and in the coffee maker and the soy milk in the microwave before getting things started. I also measured a scoop of the Fit Frappe vanilla powder into my Ninja blender. It also helps to plug the motor for the blender into the electrical outlet, so its ready to go.
I started the coffee maker and set the microwave to one and a half minutes. I knew the soy milk would be done before the coffee, but its fine for it to stay in the microwave, the beeping every thirty seconds or so just reminds me that its waiting to be added to this yummy drink.
So after the coffee was done I poured it into the blender, added the soy milk and blended for about a minute. The timing doesn’t have to be exact, just a matter of what feels right to you.
I poured the drink into one of my Bubba 24 ounce tumblers, attached the top and had a very yummy Cinnamon Bun Coffee Protein Shake.
I think next time, and this was so good, there will be a next time, I’ll sprinkle some cinnamon on top and maybe a pump of sugar free vanilla syrup, just for the fun of it.
So that was my experiment for this morning. There are many ways of changing up food and drinks to add some variety to what you have on a regular basis. If you have any ideas, feel free to add your comment.
