While I am obviously a huge fan of skinny lattes, the scorching heat of Florida summers makes hot drinks a bit less appealing. Nevertheless, a mommy needs caffeine! This morning I came up with the following yummy concoction that satisfied my craving for coffee in a refreshing heat-friendly manner.
8 ounces of low-fat milk (I prefer Silk Almond Coconut Blend)
1 teaspoon of instant coffee
2 tablespoons of flavored coffee creamer (I used Coffee-Mate Sugar Free French Vanilla)
1-3 teaspoons of Splenda (depending on your taste)
10-12 large ice cubes
1. Add the ingredients in the order listed above to the blender.
2. Blend until smooth. This will be quite thick due to the amount of ice used. If you prefer a thinner smoothie, reduce the amount of ice or add more milk.
