Since it’s Monday again, I thought I would share with you my newest coffee creation. I figured we would need the caffeine kick to get us through the day! Wouldn’t you agree?
This my lovely Friends is so easy, so low-calorie, not to mention a chocolaty, creamy treat that is so guilt-free, that you can have two or three. I love this drink! Normally when I go to my favorite coffee shop Starbucks, I always get the skinny vanilla latte or I get it on ice. I would love to order this frappuccino style but the sugar is way to high for me!! You’ll see what I’m talking about in a minutes.
I made this drink using instant coffee, but you can always brew up your favorite coffee, the key is to make it strong cup. Than I froze my coffee for 4 hours or you can do it overnight. Let it thaw a little bit, so your blender can crush the ice. Than I added a little bit of stevia, vanilla extract and unsweetened cocoa powder. Blend a way to this tasty drink.
I have to say, nothing like sitting outside on a hot day and sipping on a cool drink. I simply love this drink!! As we speak I have coffee in the freezer just waiting for me. I can’t wait!
Now you know I love to do my comparisons.
