This new recipe is a major eye-opener, and not only because it's made with coffee and chocolate -- it will open your eyes to just how easy it is to make Starbucks-style blendy drinks at home... YAY!!!
2 tsp. shredded sweetened coconut, roughly chopped
2 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp. fat-free non-dairy powdered creamer (like the kind by Coffee-mate)
1 tsp. instant coffee granules
1 tsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 no-calorie sweetener packets (like Splenda or Truvia), or more to taste
1/8 tsp. coconut extract
2 cups crushed ice or 10 - 16 ice cubes
2 tbsp. Fat Free Reddi-wip
1 tsp. light chocolate syrup
In a skillet over medium heat, cook and stir chopped coconut until lightly browned, about 2 minutes.
In a tall glass, combine cocoa powder, creamer, coffee granules, chocolate chips, and sweetener. Add 1/2 cup very hot water, and stir until mostly dissolved.
Stir in coconut extract and transfer mixture to a blender. Add ice and blend at high speed until smooth.
Pour, top with Reddi-wip, and drizzle with chocolate syrup. Sprinkle with lightly browned coconut and enjoy!
