Hip Hip Frappé!

We've taken all the sweet, creamy flavor of chocolatey blended coffee drinks and left the excess sugar and fat FAR behind. Time for guilt-free indulgence...

1 packet hot cocoa mix with 20 - 25 calories
 (like Swiss Miss Diet or Nestlé Fat Free)
1 tbsp. fat-free nondairy powdered creamer 

1 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda or Truvia) 

1 tsp. instant coffee granules 

1/2 cup light vanilla soymilk
2 tsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips 

1 1/2 cups crushed ice or 8 - 12 ice cubes 

1/4 cup Fat Free Reddi-wip 

1 tsp. light chocolate syrup
1 tsp. fat-free, low-fat, or light caramel dip

 (like the kinds by Marzetti)

In a tall glass, combine cocoa mix, powdered creamer, sweetener, and coffee granules. Add 1/4 cup very hot water, and stir until mostly dissolved.

Transfer mixture to a blender. Add soymilk, chocolate chips, and ice, and blend at high speed until smooth.

Enjoy topped with Reddi-wip, chocolate syrup, and caramel dip!

Frap Mishap...

Oh boy. This blended drink from Mickey D's consists of both caramel and mocha frappé bases (each loaded with cream and sugar), plus chocolate chips, all topped off with whipped cream, more chocolate, and more caramel... Is it any wonder this item is super high in fatty, sugary calories?!? To put the crazy stats into perspective, this beverage has more fat than TWO Snickers bars and more sugar than TWO cans of Coke! YIKES. Luckily, you can sidestep this cup of insanity with our newest recipe swap. We called in some of our best guilt-free ingredients when it comes to re-creating sweet blended drinks. Who doesn't appreciate a good team effort? Especially one this delicious...
