Blended Mocha Cappuccino- 122 calories

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

Organic Whipped Cream- optional and not included in nutrition below

In a blender combine all ingredients and give it a whirl until everything is incorporated and ice is smooth, about 1- 2 minutes. Pour into glasses and serve.

Each drink has:               Compare to Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino:

Calories: 122                    Calories: 500

Fat: 1                                   Fat: 17

Fiber: 2.5                           Fiber: 0

Protein: 1                          Protein: 7

Carbs: 26                           Carbs: 83

*** NOTE: USE ALREADY BREWED COFFEE, NOT GROUNDS! ***

      • I’m a new follower. Oh, I would also love this recipe! I love caramel capp!
        I know you’re busy, just wanted to let you know someone else would love to have a caramel recipe! Thanks!

      • OK, you guys win ;)

        I actually was testing a coffee creamer recipe with my chocolate syrup and exclaimed to a house full of people, “This needs caramel sauce” just about an hour ago.

        My only concern is that making caramel sauce “Skinny” will be very difficult, perhaps it will just be all natural. :)

        Will make this a priority next week.

        HAPPY COOKING!

      • Sugar free foods are all chemicals, when I gave all that stuff up I was FINALLY able to lose weight. They replace the sugar with chemicals and preservatives which your body does not know how to process so it turns it into fat.

        I would rather have more calories than chemicals :)

      • I know this topic of trying to find a way to make a healthy caramel some how had been brought up quite some time ago. But, Im new to this site and just saw this here and thought I’d make a suggestion. You can make your own caramel with a can of evaporated milk submerged in water in the crock pot left to cook for about 8 hrs or so. If you were to use the non fat version of the evaporated milk to make it it would be much healthier and might I add cheaper then using the store bought caramels that has god knows what in them. Just thought Id share the info hope it helps :)

  5. Tomorrow is a new month and a new week….and I’m starting my diet. It’s going to be a challenge, but I’m ready for it! I have a question. I’m not fond of a sweet salad dressing, but would like a dressing on my salad. What would you recommend?

    Thanks for sharing your story and all the recipes and tips in your blog! :-)

  7. Looks great! I can’t wait to try this. I really like Starbucks but it’s so expensive and high in calories! But when I make things on my own, they are never thick enough, which I attributed to using lower fat milk and/or not steaming the milk. Blending in a bit of Greek yogurt seems like a great way to thicken it up. Thanks for posting!! :)
