Mocha Frappuccino Ideal Protein Style – yeah!
This was my first concoction that I fell in love with while on the Ideal Protein diet. It’s so flavorful and chalked full of veggies. That’s right – I did say veggies.
Stay with me now – you’ll come to love this drink too. Chocolate, coffee, and your two cups of veggies – spinach in this case, to fulfill your 4 cups of vegetables in Phase 1.
Now a word about spinach. It’s full of vitamins and nutrients; however the wonderful thing about it, is that raw spinach blended is masked by the taste of whatever else you blend it with. For those who have children – it’s a great way to hide the veggies in a blended smoothie.
Okay so on to the recipe.
