I am a coffeehouse regular. I love to indulge in those decadent coffee drinks. But once I realized just how indulgent those drinks really are (about 500 calories and 80 grams of sugar a pop) I switched to drinking iced lattes.

A combination of espresso and milk, although they are fraction of the calories they never quite cured my desire for decadence, which left me feeling like I was missing out. Then I had an epiphany…

I can create a skinny version of my favorite Starbucks mocha Frappaccino and have the best of both worlds. It’s a fabulous treat I can whip up at home anytime!

Skinny Mocha Frappuccino

I really am doing my best to make smart choices to be the best me possible. I work at a desk and do not have a super active lifestyle, so I bought one of those step counters that you wear on your wrist and I do my best to get my steps in. It is a great indicator of whether I am active enough (or not) and kind of helps keep me in check.

I also try to save a few calories here and there and this Skinny Mocha Frappuccino is the perfect way to save those calories so I can indulge, guilt free.  I am hooked on International Delight coffee creamers and have been for some time.

The Fat-Free & Sugar-Free Toasted Hazelnut flavor has really been rocking my world lately.

My favorite frozen whipped frappe cappuccino with the volume turned up thanks to my new favorite flavor and the guilt turned off.

So tell me, how do you keep your self in check? What little things do you do to make a better you?


With love, from our simple kitchen to yours.

    1. The creamer is only 15 calories per tablespoon (total of 60). Add the calories from your favorite products. The way I prepared mine was about 150 calories. I could be made a lot lighter too (less whipped cream on top).

      Enjoy and let us know how it goes,

  1. This looks fabulous! Sadly,or perhaps not, I am allergic to most sugar substitutes. I will use the regular toasted hazelnut creamer, and real sugar instead of the sugar free variety.

  2. I would like to know if you could do a caramel Frappuccino?
    I Also loved my drink with 2 shots blended. What is the shot consist of? Just really really strong coffee or what?

  3. 5 stars
