I had a friend come over who loves Starbucks, so this was my excuse to come up with a low-calorie substitution… like I really need an excuse! It is delicious and easy, has protein and calcium and really gives you that kick of caffeine you craving. I made it with my Fat Free Chocolate Syrup, free of preservatives and thickening agents and even more delicious and rich than Hershey’s Syrup! Compare this to a Mocha Frappuccino at Starbucks at 500 Calories.
Makes 2 large drinks-
1 cup Strong Black Coffee
1 cup Almond Milk
2 tbsp Greek Yogurt
4 tbsp Chocolate Syrup- plus more for drizzling over top
1 cup Ice
