CHEW THE RIGHT THING
HG's Creamy White Mocha
White Done Right!
It's time to sip and smile! This creamy and decadent (yet guilt-free) coffee drink is going to make your face (and the rest of you!) VERY happy...
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: Under 5 minutes
2 tbsp. sugar-free French vanilla powdered creamer (like the kind by Coffee-mate)
2 tsp. instant coffee granules
1/2 cup light vanilla soymilk
1 tsp. white chocolate chips, finely chopped
Optional topping: Fat Free Reddi-wip
Place powdered creamer and coffee granules in a tall microwave-safe mug or glass. Add 3/4 cup very hot water, and stir until dissolved.
Add soymilk, and microwave until drink is hot, about 45 seconds. Stir in chopped white chocolate chips, and enjoy!

HG Alternative: You can add the chopped chips with the creamer and coffee granules, but we like 'em best when they're stirred in at the end!
Starbucks' White Chocolate Mocha
We'll confess -- any time Starbucks releases a new coffee drink, we pretty much immediately get the urge to try it and give it a guilt-free makeover. Not only is this more cost effective than trips to the coffee shop, but it's also the best way to keep calorie counts under control. This one isn't new, but it recently caught our attention. Good thing, 'cuz look at the numbers below. Fifteen grams of fat? That's like four slices of pork bacon. Forty-six grams of sugar? That's almost 1/4 cup of granulated sugar! For our lightened-up swap, we kept things sweet 'n creamy with light vanilla soymilk and sugar-free vanilla creamer. Instant coffee, white chocolate chips, and (optional) fat-free whipped topping sealed the deal! So squash those white-chocolate-coffee cravings in an instant, without the fatty, sugary calorie overload.
Serving Size: Tall with 2% milk and whipped cream
PointsPlus® value 10*
