Power Coffee

This Sparked Me!

I carry a small container of protein powder in my purse. Then when I order a coffee, I can make my custom fancy coffee drink by using that instead of creamer. I like the chocolate powder, but french vanilla is yummy,too. Make it a decaf to add to your water count for the day. I'm also saving money

    If you check out the Sparkpeople Healthy Diet Habits number 4 about water, you will see that tea, decaf, juice and milk are listed as counting for your water requirement. Yeah, I was a little surprised, but happy since I love my coffee. emoticon

    protein powder?

I can't use milk or soy so I have to use non-dairy, non-soy creamers - I will have to check this out.

    Hey, no wonder you're sleek, Kitty! After I finish my coffee creamer, I'm going to give this a try. What a fabulous idea!

    What a great idea!
How does decaff coffee count toward daily water consumption? I haven't seen that here.

    Can I ask what powder you use (you too, KTANNAR). I've never used protein powder and I understand that different brands can have very different flavors. Thanks!

    I do the same, ( but usually water down the coffee to half strength. then I enjoy sipping coffee through out the day.) I feel I am getting the extra water and making it a healthy treat.
But some times I have a problem with the powder lumping up. I found if I mix with some cold water first then it isn't as bad. Any suggestions to help that?
