Ingredients:

1 cup of ice in your blender pitcher
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
1 rounded teaspoon Psyllium Husk Powder. This acts as a thickener, and keeps the smoothie from separating. The added fiber keeps you from feeling hungry during your workout.
1-2 tablespoons sugar-free flavored syrup. I used Hazelnut.
1 cup strong, brewed coffee. Cooled. Coffee People Organic is BOMB!

Step 1: Protein and Fiber.

Add 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder to the ice. I like to use a whey protein powder that is low in carbs. 
Add 1 rounded teaspoon of Psyllium Powder.

Step 2: Deliciousness.

Add 1-2 tablespoons of sugar-free flavored syrup. I used Hazelnut, but Irish Cream or chocolate would be good too!

Step 3: Caffeinate.

Pour in a cup of strong coffee. It helps to brew the night before and keep it in the refrigerator until you need it. 

Step 4: Blenderize.

Consume frothy deliciousness.
