Dear Bring On,
Thanks! I LOOOVE to concoct awesome coffee drinks. It's so much fun to come up with GREAT recipes that actually taste BETTER than many of the way more fattening drinks you find at Starbucks or Coffee Bean. To make awesome coffee drinks, I keep a slew of ingredients on hand at all times. Here's a list of things you'll ALWAYS find in the HG pantry:
Instant coffee - Folgers is my go-to brand!
Unsweetened cocoa (Schokinag is #1) - Add chocolatey-good flavor with very few calories. Stick with a teaspoon at a time (about 5 calories).
Light vanilla soymilk - OK, this actually goes in the fridge. But it's a lifesaver.
Torani sugar-free syrups - Almond Roca, Coconut, and Vanilla are best for coffee bevs.
Malted milk powder - Just one 10-calorie tsp. adds a HUGE amount of maltiness to drinks.
Coffee-mate powdered coffee creamers (sugar-free and/or fat-free) - SF Vanilla Caramel and FF French Vanilla are the best (approximately 10 cal. per tsp).
My favorite recipe of all is my Super-Duper Cocoa-rific Coffee Malt. Try it ASAP!
