Recipe: Pumpkin Spice Frappe Latte and Protein, Too (Plus a Giveaway!)

click-giveawayThe following is a post sponsored by CLICK Espresso Protein Drink. For our sponsored post policy, click here.

Oh, how we love coffee. And this time of year we really, really love pumpkin spice lattes. But, let’s face it, that sippable drink of heaven is far from healthy. Even without the whip and when it’s made with non-fat milk, it doesn’t fill you up. Not like something with more protein would. Not like a Pumpkin Mocha Spice made with CLICK Espresso Protein Drink!

With 15 grams of high quality protein, gourmet espresso coffee and 23 essential vitamins and minerals packed into each serving, CLICK combines coffee and protein to stabilize blood sugar, which helps people get the energy and decadent taste they crave while supporting their health and weight-loss goals. In fact, adding protein to your morning coffee drink or mid-day coffee break not only provides a healthy boost of energy but also may help sustain feelings of fullness as well as promote the retention of lean muscle tissue. Recent studies show that getting 20 to 30 grams of protein throughout the day—rather than a high protein dose at dinner time—may be the key to losing the weight for good. Plus, a new study, published in the September issue of the Journal of Nutrition, showed that increased consumption of protein, particularly protein from dairy foods like the protein found in CLICK, helps people who are dieting lose more fat and preserve lean body mass (aka muscle) during exercise- and diet-induced weight loss.

CLICK is perfect as a morning pick-me-up, a supplement to a workout or a mid-day, calorie-curbing snack. Unlike most other protein drinks, CLICK can be enjoyed hot as a coffee substitute or cold as a gourmet frappe-style drink, and, with the price at just over a dollar per serving, it makes a cost-effective alternative to high-priced drinks offered at coffee shops. Plus, you don’t have to stand in line for it!
