    Default coffee replacement?

    So what do ya'll drink in the mornings in place of coffee? I'm almost 3 months out & down 41 pounds! I know I should be happy about that but I feel it should be more. I have to get up really early for work so I usually drink a cup of coffee with French vanilla creamer (I know I should do sugar free but I hate the taste of it) and then I usually drink a premier protein drink. I love coffee, but it kinda makes me jittery. Any suggestions on something else I could drink in the mornings besides coffee that would help wake me up, but doesn't have a ton of calories?

    Default Re: coffee replacement?

    I make myself a big latte. I use espresso, Splenda, fat free fairlife milk, a scoop of collagen powder, and a splash of 1/2 and 1/2. It is about 180 calories for a huge glass but that is my breakfast so I don't mind. It also has 30g of protein and it helps me start my day off right. I don't eat for a while after that. If you like vanilla maybe you could add vanilla premier protein shake to your coffee. I hear a lot of people do that with whatever flavor they like. Carmel is a popular one.

    Shhhhh.... I believe in sharing secrets !!... but I’ve been to 3 different places hunting the Carmel flavored Premier Protein. (LOL) I told my wife it’s like everybody has tried it or someone is promoting it. I have a lot of different flavors, cookies and cream mixed with a little Almond milk and “PB2” is close to being my favorite. If I can’t Carmel flavored Premier protein soon.

    I do use swig of vanilla flavored in my decaf coffee, if I decide to drink a cup.

    My favorite thing here lately is “Diet Minute Maid Lemonade “ I think that’s the name ? I comes in a 12 ounce can and has like 5 calories.
    BUT I CANT THEM EITHER !!!!.... my wife said it’s because you talk stuff up to your friends and general public and everybody runs out and buys !!

    I told her I wish I had that kind of influence..(LOL). I just can’t beleive everything I went shopping for isn’t to be found..

    NOW I KNOW !!!.... u posting my Carmel flavored protein all over the INTERNET!!... (LOL)

    Have a GREAT DAY

    I drink Isopure salted caramel. It's really good in coffee. Walmart has the premier protein caramel.

    The only thing I replace is truvia for sugar, sugar free syrup or sugar free creamer in place of regular.

    I was never told I couldn't drink coffee. I enjoy it with Premier Protein shake vanilla as my cremer/sweetener every morning.

    LOL. Every time I like something it also becomes hard to find. I was so in love with Think Thin High Protein Berry Crumble oatmeal. Couldn't find it anymore except on Amazon and they wanted some crazy amount for it. No thanks. Also, I used to love Advant Edge Low Carb Iced Brew Coffee protein shakes...(actually I also like their chocolate) and I had those for years and they stopped selling them as well. Wonder if the company went out of business? As for the caramel premier protein, we usually buy them at Walmart. For a while they were out and we could only find them on Amazon but they have them again now.
