Green Baked Cinnamon Apple Frappe

Guest Post by TheCavery.com

Cinnamon Apple Frappe RecipeThis is very exciting for me because I wanted to share this new coffee protein drink I’m diggin. It is called Fit Frappé by Big Train. Have you heard of this? It’s basically the same powder you use to make your frappés but it has protein AND caffeine (bOinGk!). The taste is amazing for the large amount of protein (20 g for 16oz!) and if you include it in your green smoothie like I did, it fills you up better than a protein bar with 20g of protein (yucky!). AND it wakes you right up! I highly recommend it!

Love love love this new green smoothie recipe I conjured up in my kitchen today. I’m very excited to share it. I think staring at my new Christmas tree brought up the need to get some cinnamon and apples in my life ASAP.
Ingredients
  • ½ package of Big Train’s Fit Frappé in Vanilla Latte
  • 4, 5-inch celery sticks chopped
  • ¼ baked cinnamon apple. (Recipe: ¼ apple, dusted with ½ tbsp of cinnamon, baked under 350 degrees F for 20 minutes)
  • ¼c pure carrot juice *can be substituted with almond milk or water
  • ¼c almond milk
  • 3-4 ice cubes
Instructions
  1. Whip all ingredients up in a blender until you have reached a smooth consistency with no lumps or fibers. This will usually take about a minute depending how efficient your blender is.
  2. Add garnish (pepita seeds, chia seeds, flax seeds, cinnamon & nutmeg)
  3. Swirl with a spoon, and enjoy!

Big Train Stops at Compete 4 Causes (C4C) 5K with #WLSFA

Recently Big Train discovered Compete 4 Causes, a non profit organization dedicated to raising support and public awareness for charitable causes while promoting Fitness & Wellness. Since Launching Fit Frappé (outrageously delicious café style protein drink mixes) in the health and fitness industry, the Bariatric community has really embraced this protein drink mix line. Sandi Henderson from Banded Living was kind enough to invite Big Train to support the Weight Loss Surgery Foundation of America (WLFSA) booth at the event. It was great to meet WLSFA YouTube sensation Wendy Campbell aka Banded Wendy. Antonia Namnath, CEO and Founder of WLSFA was there too!

It was a gorgeous southern California day, perfect for a run. Fun fact: Banded Wendy runs to techno music. The event was held on the Cal State Northridge University campus. There were no earthquakes! (Knocking on wood.)  Big Train handed out samples of our Fit Frappé line to race participants. The response was very enthusiastic.

We met some great people including the lovely Lea Crosetti, Founder of BariAthletes.
