Skinny Mocha Mint Cookie Frappe

Hi Everyone,

Today I have another one of my crazy coffee concoctions for you!  This came from a reader who suggested I come up with a skinny version of the Starbucks Mocha Cookie Crumble.  I did the best I could and I will say it is hella good!!!

When I was looking for ingredients for this coffee, I saw Oreo Mint Cookies and thought that the wafer part, not the filling, would be perfect in my new Frappe.  So in making this I scraped out the cream filling and added two wafer cookies to the coffee. Mmmm!  This drink has just a small kick of mint to it!  It’s perfect!!  Almost tastes like a chocolate milkshake!  I love it!

If you’re not into mint, you could use a regular chocolate wafer cookie or a regular Oreo.  I surprised my Husband and gave him a drink.  He doesn’t like Frappuccino’s, He doesn’t believe that coffee should be cold.  Let me tell you he was glad to take this coffee.  He took it, asked for whip cream and out the door he went.  I said wait!  How do you like it, it’s really good honey!  Wow, I got a honey out of him!  That means he must have loved it!!

For the topping I just added Redi Whip 5 calorie whip cream, and cookie crumbs.  I used my mini food processor to process the cookie wafer into a crumb.  That is optional, but it makes it pretty and it tastes good to!!  I didn’t include that into my calorie count.  Oh and speaking of calorie count, mine will not be exact.  See, Oreo’s with out the stuffing is 25 calorie for each wafer.  I do not know that the rest of the stats will be, but the calorie will be right on.  Speaking of calories, ready for my comparisons?

Ha ha!  I love it!!  Look at the calories, carbs and sugar!  Crazy!!  really, what do they put in there’s?  Now you can make this at home guilt free!!
