Prep: 5 minutes


2 tbsp. unsweetened dark cocoa powder

1 tbsp. instant coffee granules

2 tsp. sugar-free French vanilla powdered creamer

2 packets no-calorie sweetener

1/4 tsp. cinnamon, or more for topping

Dash cayenne pepper

1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1 1/2 cups crushed ice (about 12 ice cubes)

Optional: light whipped topping


In a tall glass, combine cocoa, coffee, creamer, sweetener, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper. Add 1/4 cup hot water, and stir to dissolve.

Add milk and 1/4 cup cold water, and mix well.

Transfer to a blender, add ice, and blend at high speed until smooth, stopping and stirring if needed.
