Amazon Ingredients for Low-Calorie Blended Coffee Drinks

Aug 19 2020
Question@2x Hi Hungry Girl,

I've really been enjoying your Facebook Live recipe videos, especially the frozen coffee drinks! I noticed you've been playing with some cool new ingredients… What should I stock up on so that I can make these freezy beverages?

Answer@2x Hi Coffee Talk,

I’ve been having a blast coming up with all these new drinks -- my blender is getting a workout! In addition to the usual supermarket staples, I've been mixing in some special ingredients that I get on Amazon. These are some of my must-haves, plus my latest blended coffee recipes. (P.S. Visit my Amazon store for ALL my favorite online finds!)

Xanthan Gum

This one’s a GAME CHANGER. It’s a thickening agent that adds texture and major volume to blended shakes and smoothies… It works in dressing recipes, gluten-free baked goods, and soups too! Plus, it’s practically calorie-free. If the kind by Anthony’s is out of stock, try this one by NOW Real Foods.

PB2 The Original Powdered Peanut Butter

YES, in coffee drinks! This has been a staple ingredient in my world for a long time, but I only recently tried adding it to frozen java drinks. It brings a lot of peanut butter flavor for only about 30 calories per tablespoon.

Watkins Caramel Flavor

Extracts & flavorings like this are a fantastic way to add 0-calorie flavor to frozen drinks and more, and this company makes the very best! The Caramel has become my new go-to flavor… Yum!

Tera's Whey Bourbon Vanilla Protein Powder

Not all protein powders are created equal, and this line is my absolute hands-down favorite. I've also been using the Dark Chocolate Cocoa variety -- SO GOOD! Each 2-scoop serving has just 110 calories, but I often use 1 scoop or less.

It’s an Amazon Haul on the Hungry Girl Podcast!

Chew on this:

It's August 19th, National Soft Ice Cream Day. You know what? Several of these drinks taste kinda like ice cream shakes, so we're gonna say that counts. Get blending...
