Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Frappe #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone and Happy Sunday!

Today for the #SundaySupper we had to make a budget friendly meal for when times are tough and groceries can be expensive.   I am bringing one of my favorite recipes to the table!   You already know I am a HUGE coffee drinker and you already know that I heart Starbucks, so today I am excited to bring to you my latest coffee concoction, the Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Frappe.

This recipe isn’t really a meal but it does save money in the pocket-book.  If your like me and can’t live without Starbucks,  then you will want to thank me, because not only does this taste amazing, it’s low-calorie and yes cheap to make.  I guessed that this drink probably costs about 25 cents to make, compared to the almost $5.00 that they charge at the store.  Plus to boot in all actuality this recipe makes two servings so now it costs about 15 cents to make!  Your welcome!  🙂

Not only do I LOVE to save money, but I also love low calories!  This drink is so guilt-free that you wont want to share and you can drink the whole thing yourself!  You know I love to do calorie comparisons  so I am bringing you that today that way you’ll want to make this at home instead of driving in the car and going to SB.  Let’s check out the stats, shall we.

Check out the Calorie difference.   CRAZY!!!  My carbs and sugar are way less too!  Thank you SB, I’ll be making my Skinny Cinnamon Dolce at home!  Oh and mine included whip cream!

So you want to know what is this low-calorie drink made out of?  Glad you asked!  It’s so simple, it’s almost embarrassing.   It’s skim milk, coffee, and cinnamon!  That’s it!  I topped it with some fat-free whip cream and a pinch of cinnamon and sugar.  The taste is unbelievable  I thought it would have been a little spicy and a little to earthy, but it wasn’t.  It is creamy, smooth and just the right amount of sweetness.  I am impressed with this one!

Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Frappe
Prep time
Total time
A frozen coffee drink blended with milk and cinnamon and topped with whip cream and sugar and cinnamon.
Serves: 4 Cups
  • For Frappe:
  • 1½ cups coffee, partially thawed
  • ½ cup non-fat milk or coconut milk
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon, ground
  • ¼ tsp. stevia or 2 tbsp sugar (more to taste)
  • Topping:
  • 1 dash cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. sugar or a pinch of stevia
  • 2 tbsp. fat free whip cream
  1. In a blender add all of the Frappe Ingredients, process until smooth.
  2. Serve with a dollop of whip cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar. I used the Trader Joe's Cinnamon and Sugar Grinder.
  3. Note: For coffee, I froze 1½ cups of coffee in ice cube trays or you can freeze 1½ cups of coffee in a freezer safe container and microwave for a few seconds to soften up or leave on the counter. Last option, in a glass add 1½ heaping teaspoons of instant coffee in 1½ cups of water, refrigerate until cold and add ice cubes to the blender when you ready to make.

I love friendly budget meals and I love that I can save money from not going to my favorite coffee-house!   Though you know I’ll still be making my trip to Starbucks!  After all I need to keep my gold card member status!

Have a wonderful Sunday and be sure to check out everyone else’s friendly budget meals!
