Sometimes, a gal just wants a little treat. Something smooth and creamy. Maybe a little chocolate and a little caffeine for a boost of energy. And cool. Cool is a must. These were the thoughts going through my head late last Saturday afternoon. I was able to satisfy my need for a treat with a very easy, lowfat Mocha Frappe.
1 cup almond milk (use soy or regular milk if you prefer)
1 TBSP coffee syrup
1 TBSP chocolate syrup
4-5 pieces of Ice
1. Combine everything but the ice in a blender and mix.
2. Add the ice and blend until you reach the desired consistency.
3. Find a nice spot on the patio away from children and noise and drink up!
Now I realize that coffee syrup is not something most people have on hand. I do because my wonderful friend Jen brought me some. I had no idea but Coffee Milk is a big treat in Rhode Island. When she and her family came to visit a few weeks ago, they brought me some. It is great with milk but even better with milk, and chocolate syrup in this tasty treat.
If you don’t have coffee syrup on hand, you can buy it from Amazon. Or you can just add a little coffee or a shot of espresso.
Enjoy! Oh! And one more thing! Don’t forget #bringbackourgirls.
