So I thought I'd mix things up a bit this morning. One suggestion on the Unjury recipe website was to mix the vanilla protein with coffee for a "rich creamier taste." Of course, I am trying to do this right so I took my handy-dandy thermometer to work with me, poured my coffee, placed the thermometer in and watched as the temperature topped-out at 130° F. Noting that it was at the max temp recommended, I decided to let it cool just a tad before adding the protein. At about 125° F, I slowly added the protein - stirring constantly. And I stirred and stirred and stirred. And stirred. (note - this cooled it off another 5°!) So once it was finally dissolved, I took my first sip. BLECH!!!! I don't care what the website said, vanilla protein powder is not a good substitute for creamer! Not. at. all. I even went back and tried to add some creamer to try to make it better... no use. My coffee was ruined. I don't think of myself as a coffee expert or coffee snob; I just have a specific taste I like for my coffee and this was not it.
Now I know...I will not do that again!
