Healthy and Affordable Coffee Protein Smoothie

I'm not a huge fan of the taste of coffee, so it really surprised me that I liked the coffee drink that came in one of my juice cleanse orders.  If you are a coffee lover, you might find that you want a stronger coffee flavor in this smoothie.  At the ridiculous prices (and often scary nutritional info) of getting coffee out, I played around with making mine.

BarreNotes 2.4 update troubles?
Our recent app update shipped with a sneaky bug that will likely cause BarreNotes to crash when starting. The quick fix is to delete the app and reinstall from the AppStore. This will delete your favorites, solving the problem and letting the app work.

The real cure is hopefully to be found in update 2.5 which has been submitted to the AppStore and should be available for download within a day.
