Make it CLICK

They say admitting it is the first step. So, here it goes. I have several addictions, and most of them aren’t too bad. I’m shamelessly addicted to TurboKick, my early morning workouts, date nights with my husband, Tennessee hills, California beaches…and coffee.

I can’t help it. Hot, over ice, hazlenut, French vanilla – you name it, I like it. That’s why I was super excited when I discovered a new product – CLICK: the expresso protein drink. That’s right – you can get your coffee fix AND your protein at once!

CLICK is a really healthy espresso protein drink that contains 15 grams of protein, 23 vitamins and minerals with a double shot of espresso in a 120 calorie 12 oz. serving. Plus, it has a rich and creamy flavor that will make you think you’re talented enough to be a barista at Starbucks.

That’s not all – CLICK is versatile enough to be able to drink hot or cold. (I tried it both ways, and it’s fantastic.)

I decided to use CLICK to make my own version of an Iced White Chocolate Mocha. If you’ve never had a real one of these, don’t start! It’s best that you don’t know what you’re missing.

Here’s how to do it on your own. You will need:

                  4 oz. Skim Milk

                  8 oz. water

                  1 TBSP Sugar Free White Chocolate Syrup

                  2 scoops of CLICK

                  2 TBSP Cool Whip Free

Pour 4 oz. milk and 8 oz. of water in shaker. 
Add 1 TBSP of sugar free white chocolate syrup. Add 2 scoops of CLICK and shake. 
Open shaker, add 2 TBSP of Cool Whip Free and shake again. Finally, add 2-3 cubes of ice, and shake again.

Let’s talk cost. My CLICK version (a great combination coffee/breakfast or coffee/afternoon snack) only has about 200 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, and 11 grams of sugar.  Each container of CLICK contains 14 servings for $25 – costing you under $2 a meal.

The real thing - if you restrict yourself to just ordering a tall - will cost you 370 calories, 15 grams of fat (10 are saturated), and 45 grams of sugar. (Plus – don’t forget that you haven’t eaten yet!) Plus, it’s twice the price - $4 a visit.

Head over to today and try your own today. Feel free to make your own combination and post your recipe here!

Special thanks to my friends at CLICK for sending me a PINK protein shaker to try out their products. J
