Skinny Chocolate Raspberry Frappe

Hi Everyone,

It’s been a while since I shared a coffee drink with you, but I felt it was time!  🙂  When I was in Vegas there was a little coffee shop in our hotel that we stopped at everyday for our morning coffee and some slot playing.  One of the drinks on the menu was a Chocolate Raspberry Frappuccino.  Hmmm, thought, I could so make that and when I got home I sure did!!  Meet my newest Skinny Coffee Drink!

I originally thought of using frozen raspberries in the drink, but I changed my mind because I didn’t want all the seeds, so I opted for raspberry extract by McCormick, that I picked up from my local grocery store.

I also used my basic recipe which is skim milk, unsweetened cocoa powder and partially frozen coffee.   Blend all together and wala the frappe is born.  But a frappe isn’t a frappe without the whip cream and chocolate drizzle which is included in the calculations.  Total calories for this drink is 62.6.  Oh and you get just over two cups worth!  I like that!!!

The best way I can describe this drink is kind of like a Wendy’s frosty with a hint of raspberry!  Oh yes please!  It’s chocolaty, smooth and delish.  This recipe makes enough for two servings, but it’s really to good to share!!  I only used 1/4 tsp. of raspberry extract, but you may want a pinch more depending on how strong your coffee is.  My coffee was kind of on the weak side so I didn’t want it to over baring on the raspberry!
