Double-O-Cinnamon Swappuccino

Posted on

Who needs Starbucks when you can make this for 76 calories at home?

I do.  That’s who.

This starts out as a great idea from Hungry Girl to the Max.

Powdered vanilla creamer, instant coffee, and two Splenda.

Add a little hot water and stir.  Then just blend with soymilk and ice and a touch of cinnamon.

I know.  It all sounds good, in theory.  In fact, it smelled amazing too.  Coffee and cinnamon, what’s not to like?

I guess I’m just not into the idea of a Frappuccino; my husband orders them all the time.   And although they have great sounding names, like Java Chip — his favorite — inevitably they are way too sweet for me.

I usually order a grande iced coffee, black/unsweetened.  I like to tell the barista that I’m sweet enough already.  But the truth is that I’m just too controlling and I like to add my one Splenda and just the right amount of milk.  I’m looking for coffee with cream, not coffee-flavored milk, if you know what I mean.

Anyway,  this was good, but next time I will use one Splenda instead of two.

Eat Well and Savor.

  1. This looks amazing! I now regret pouring a glass of wine and wish I made this instead.
