Now…onto the recipes.
TEAM ESPRESSO: Penney’s “Wake Your A$$ Up!” Shake

1 c. cold coffee
2 tbsp. Coffee Mate sugar-free Caramel Macchiato Creamer (or to taste
1 serving of Fit Frappe Espresso (the 8 oz. size serving OR  1/2 the sample pack)
1 tbsp Torani sugar-free caramel syrup

(Penney’s) Directions:

“Shake it up, baby! And because I am a loon and have to work til midnight, I poured this over COFFEE ICE CUBES! Wheeee”

TEAM MOCHA: Bridget’s Ode to Joyous Almond Shake

Fit Frappe mocha (8 oz. serving)
1 pump (1 tbsp) sugar-free coconut syrup
1/2 pump (1/2 tbsp) sugar-free almond syrup (or sub 2 drips of extract)
8oz milk of your choice (coconut or almond are nice)



Blend with your method of choice (I use the Super Chill Method). If you are adventurous (and have time) sprinkle with some fresh toasted almonds or unsweetened coconut…or sugar-free whippage (whipped cream)!

TEAM VANILLA: Alyson’s Orange Creamsicle Shake

1 serving Fit Frappe Vanilla (8 oz. serving)
8 oz. preferred liquid (milk, water, etc.)
1/2 sugar-free orange drink stick

Directions: Combine in the blender for a tasty treat!

TEAM VANILLA LATTE: Dana’s “Big Train Vanilla Latteccino Chai”

1 heaping tbsp. Big Train Spiced Chai
1 serving (8 oz. size) Vanilla Latte Fit Frappe
3 oz. unsweetened vanilla almond milk
2 packets Truvia
7-8 ice cubes
To prepare, Dana recommends BF’s very own “Super Chill Method for making a Protein Frosty” but here’s Dana’s recap:

Turn on the blender and whiz it up, and trickle another 2-3 ounces of unsweetened vanilla almond milk into the blender (either through the top if it’s safe to do so, or by stopping the blender and adding it. 

After 6-8 seconds of whizzing around, stop the blender and shake the container as needed to keep it whizzing around. Once all the big pieces of ice have been whizzed into your drink, you’re ready to conquer your Big Train “Latteccino Chai.” It’s so thick and rich that you HAVE to drink it slowly – or risk getting a brain freeze!!”

TEAM CHOCOLATE: Wendy’s Vegetarian-Friendly Chocolate Microwave Cake

1 scoop chocolate protein powder 
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 packet stevia
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
3-4 pumps of sugar free davinci syrup (I use vanilla)

You want a thick consistency – like that of playdough. press it down into the bottom of a microwave safe container. Microwave for 60-90 seconds.

There you have it, Foodies! Vote for your favorite to win! You have until noon on Saturday, September 8 to cast your vote and by doing so, enter to win a FREE sample pack of Fit Frappe!
Thanks to all the people who submitted recipes and, as always, thanks for reading Bariatric Foodie!

    All of the recipes sound luscious, but I was particularly impressed by the recipe for something other than a shake, and will definitely be trying this one in the future.
