Move over Starbucks make way for my coconut lattes

Are you spending too much of your valuable time in the drive-through line at Starbucks waiting on your morning hit or afternoon splurge?  When you get done tallying those numbers maybe you should take a look at your bank statement and see what kind of numbers are flying out of your account everytime you make that decision!  No reallly, DO IT!  This is money you could be sending to the red cross for disaster relief  (think JOPLIN people–PLEASE), MS Society, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society…should I go on?   Ok, I am stepping down from my soap box now…SORRY!

I guess you know by now how infatuated I am with Silk’s coconut milk, if not pay more attention please!  Anyway, I have been very busy here at 488  finding ways for you to use what you already have at home and avoid that dreaded drive-through!   The recipes I have tested couldn’t be easier to whip together and trust me at about $.58-1.25/8 oz, Starbucks has nothing on these cool healthful drinks!

Move over Starbucks, make way for my coconut latte recipes:

Benecafe smoothie

  • 8 oz Silk’s vanilla coconut milk
  • 1 scoop hemp protein powder (or your favorite pure HBV protein)
  • 1 t instant coffee–caf or decaf–our favorite is Extra Smooth Mountain Blend found at our local grocer
  • ice
  • Put all ingredients into a lidded container.  Shake the hell out of it.  I mean give it all you got!  Pour over ice and enjoy!

Benecafe frappacino

  • Follow the Benecafe latte recipe except throw it in your blender and give it a spin.  Serve and enjoy!

Benecafe fruit smoothie

  • 8 oz Silk’s vanilla coconut milk
  • 1 tsp high quality instant coffee
  • 1/2 c frozen fruit (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, mango, banana–whatever you like!)
  • hemp protein powder

Thow all ingredients into your blender or smoothie machine and let it rip!  Serve and Enjoy!

Benecafe fruit ice

  • 8 oz Silk’s vanilla coconut milk
  • 1 tsp high quality instant coffee
  • 1 scoop hemp protein powder
  • 1/2 c frozen fruit

Throw this all into a container with a lid.  Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake!  Enjoy your drink and then have a nice fruit snack!  YUM!
