For the purposes of this review, I mixed the Fit Frappe Powder into cold water in a shaker cup.
I noticed that the Fit Frappe looks a lot like a vanilla-based protein powder with coffee specks, and it has no protein odor.
Because I'm hardcore, I used the whole packet, for a whopping 20 grams of protein and 100 mgs of caffeine even after drinking 4285948 cups of Starbucks coffee this morning.
The smell -
Not! Protein! *tiny celebration* I am always pleased when a shake doesn't smell like whey protein, because whey smells icky. The Fit Frappe Espresso smells like, DARK ROASTED COFFEE. This is going well.
The texture -
Smooth without a stitch of grit. I am pleased not to find any dry bits or lumps in my drink, although I did leave some lumps after shaking, none of them hit my tongue and make me do the "OMG OMG OMG" dance. (Because I am sensory overload girl.) It was perfectly fine.
The taste -
On my first sip, I said "WOW." This is some strong espresso flavor. That's how I like it. I want my espresso to KICK ME IN THE FACE, and the Fit Frappe Espresso Protein Drink did JUST. THAT.
Perfect, I love you?
The Fit Frappe could very easily make a home in my repetoire of all-things-coffee. It's a meal-replacement, which means, Beth Could Use It As Breakfast! Oh. 140 calories, 20 grams of protein in a meal replacement with caffeine. Yes.
