I Created My Own Mocha Coffee Recipe That's High in Protein

I'm feeling so pleased with myself at the moment. Because I'm on a high protein diet, and I love coffee, (especially mochas) I perused recipes online for a way I could combine the two. 

I noticed that the majority of recipes all had the same three basic ingredients: high protein powder, fat-free milk, and coffee. So, I experimented.

Rather than use a powder, I prefer using Lean Body (with 40 grams of protein per package) or Muscle Milk 40 - chocolate flavor, of course. In a pinch, or when I'm on the road, I use Ensure Plus. Side note: Lean Body is $2.99 at Academy. Although Muscle Milk 40 is much more expensive, I can easily find it at any local gas station market.

I brewed my coffee. Then, in my mug, I poured it fourth full of the protein drink, a fourth of fat free milk, and the last half coffee. 

Not only is it delicious, but I don't have to add any sweetener!

Now I can have my mocha, my coffee, AND have added protein at the same time!

* * *
In a world divided by prejudice and hatred, only love can bridge the chasm.
Tensions are rising in the Gladium Province. The boundary between humans and Morgons has begun to blur. While the human aristocracy strives to maintain distance between their daughters and the dragon-hybrid race, fate has other plans.
As the daughter of the corporate king, Jessen Cade is duty-bound to honor her arranged marriage to a man she detests. Feeling trapped by family duty and a loveless future, she longs for more, straying to the Morgon side of the city.
Lucius Nightwing is the eldest son of the powerful Morgon clan, and the greatest enemy of Jessen’s father. When a bar-room brawl thrusts Jessen into his arms, his dragon roars to the surface, craving to sate his carnal hunger in the brown-eyed beauty. The beast in Lucius recognizes her as his own, even if the man refuses to admit the truth.

And on this farm he had some pigs, E I E I O
With a hack hack here, and a chop chop there,
Here a shriek, there a scream
Everywhere the blood streams...                                           
Old MacDonald had a farm, E I E I O

In rural Georgia in 1948, a man was lucky to get any kind of work.  Which was why Cletus Pink felt he'd been blessed when an old farmer named MacDonald offered him a job.  But what was making the horrific sounds coming from the main house?  Worse, why was there always fresh blood oozing out from underneath the kitchen's back door?
