This time of year I go crazy for frozen drinks at my local coffee shops, BUTT what about all the calories. I have come up with some really good alternatives that still taste as good as going out for a iced drink but less calories. I am going to go make myself one right now!
•1 cup double-strength brewed coffee or espresso
•1 cup coconut milk
•2 tablespoons unsweetened natural cocoa powder
•1 tablespoons honey
•1-2 ice cubes, if needed
•2 tablespoon light whipped cream (optional and adds 15 only calories)
Freeze ahead of time coffee in an ice cube tray until firm, at least 4 hours or overnight. Combine the frozen coffee cubes, milk, cocoa, and honey in a blender. Pulse until smooth, adding plain ice cubes if you want it thicker or a little water if you want it thinner. Divide between 2 glasses, dust with a little cocoa powder, if desired, and serve immediately.
