I don’t know about you, but this momma loves her coffee! Honestly, I loved it even before I was a mom! The other day I was really craving a cold coffee drink but A) I didn’t want to pay $7 for something and B) I couldn’t afford it calorie-wise (I’m trying REALLY hard to hit my macros between now and our trip in November). So I decided I’d do a little experimenting!
I brewed some coffee and then poured it into an ice cube tray.
Then I waited for it to freeze (a couple of hours). When the coffee cubes were frozen, I threw about 5 into my blender, along with 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk, one heaping tablespoon of my favorite protein powder, and two packets of Stevia.
Y’all… this was SO. GOOD. And even though it was right around 100 calories, it still felt like an indulgence without derailing my progress! Woot, woot!

favorite are the nacho cheese https://www.questnutrition.com/collections/quest-chips/products/nacho-cheese-tortilla-style-protein-chips
Trying to eat healthy and lose weight can be such a drag sometimes. You can only eat kale and chia seeds for so long, am I right? And when you’re trying to up your protein intake but want something that’s NOT jerky? Ugh, fuggetaboutit. Thankfully, I found something yummy that will also help me hit my protein goals!
Oh yes, those are PROTEIN chips! Quest Nutrition actually has FIVE different flavors! I’ve tried three so far: cheddar & sour cream, BBQ, and nacho cheese! Just take a look at these stats:
I paired mine with a Chick-Fil-A Chicken Club sandwich (sans bun) and it was the PERFECT meal!
Out of the three flavors I have tried, the nacho cheese are my favorite, but that’s because they tasted fairly close to Doritos!
