St. Paddy’s Day is still a ways away, but I am in the mood to be Irish for a minute. Indulge me.
This protein shake reminds me of the Bailey’s Irish Creme ice cream I used to eat when I was a kid. Interestingly enough, I have only had real Irish coffee (made by Irish people no less) once in my life. I can’t do the full throttle thing now that I am on the “modified gut” plan, but I have the memories…
Irish Coffee Protein Shake
1 c. skim milk
1 scoop vanilla whey protein
1 tbsp instant decaf coffee
3 or 4 pumps SF Irish Creme syrup
And…this may sound strange…but if you want it to taste REALLY boozy…
1 pump SF Butter Rum syrup (I know that rum and whiskey aren’t the same thing but until Davinci makes whiskey flavored syrup…this is what we have…)
Directions: Put it in a blender and whiz it. If you like monster sized shakes like I do, throw in a few cubes of ice and whiz again. Pour in a pretty glass and top with whippage.
