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.
