Low Cal Coffee Drink (recipe)

So sweet!

I love coffee, but only if it doesn't actually taste too much like coffee. Basically, I love coffee-tinged milkshakes. Since I started calorie counting I've had to cut back on Frappucinos. Man, I miss Starbucks! Anyway, I figured out a way to have my decadent coffee fix without all of those empty calories (and hits to my budget).

 Low Cal Coffee Drink
(90 calories)

  • 2 cups of cold coffee
  • 1/2 cup of skim milk
  • Torani Sugar Free Flavoring Syrups (to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons Fat Free Reddi Whip
  • 2 teaspoons Hershey's Syrup (or less)

Add the coffee and skim milk into a large cup (I like a lot of caffeine). I do my own blend of flavoring syrups. The sugar free versions are calorie free. I just add a bit of this and a bit of that until I like how it tastes. My favorite flavors are hazelnut, vanilla, caramel, and brown sugar cinnamon. Mix it all well.

My collection of Torani syrups.

Here's the part that makes me feel like I'm having something a bit naughty. I top the coffee with Fat Free Reddi Whip and then drizzle a tiny bit of Hershey's Syrup on top.

You know it's going to be good.

Now I can have my delicious coffee without the guilt. Yay! If you wanted, you could blend the coffee and milk with ice for a more authentic experience, but I really hate using the blender. It's so noisy. (Note to self - Invent a silent blender.)

Pretty, isn't it?

  1. Ohhh, you're fancy. My husband is a truck driver and was raised on super strong Folgers so that's what we drink around here. I've never been a flavored coffee girl but my daughter, who works for Starbucks, keeps trying to convert me.


Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear from you.
