Caramel Layer

  • 1/2 cup 1% cottage cheese – If you are not a fan, no worries…it blends to be dreamy and smooth.
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 ice cubes
  • 2 pitted madjool dates
  • 1 packet stevia – optional

Blend well.  Pour the caramel layer into your glass.  I like to place the glass in the freezer while I prepare the coffee layer.  No need to wash out your blender.  Just start adding the coffee ingredients.

Coffee Layer

  • 6 ice cubes made from very strong coffee
  • 1 Tablespoon almond butter – I used BuffBake Coffee Bean Protein Almond Butter
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 packet stevia – optional

Notes
Use STRONG coffee to make the ice cubes. This step needs to be done ahead of time. Perfect way to use up that last cup of coffee that sat around a little to long and got way to strong to enjoy alone.
