I’ll admit it.  I have an addiction to Starbucks Frappucinos.  This addiction manifested itself last week with the “Frappy Hours” and has not left since.  So for the past 7 days it’s been MFL (mocha frappucino light) with mocha drizzle and cookie crumbles.  I thought it was about time I created a healthier version.  This protein shake has a deep mocha flavor and a creamy complexion like a Wendy’s frosty.  I think I actually like it more than my muse!
