In the summer, there’s nothing quite like enjoying an iced-coffee in the sunshine. Watch your waist-line though as a coffee-shop iced-coffee can set you back as many as 330 calories and 19g of fat (whole milk with whipped cream and a sugary mocha syrup). That’s as much as a small meal!

I’ve also watched an iced-coffee being made whilst on holiday and they added (no joke) 3 heaped dessert spoons of sugar.. yes it tasted good but no way could I enjoy it guilt free (my poor teeth!).

So, if you’re after a delicious, yet ‘skinny’ iced-mocha (in only 90 calories!) that you can enjoy guilt-free, where ever you like, when ever you like, then carry on reading!

P.S You should also check out my ‘How to Choose a Skinny Coffee’ blog post for more waist-line friendly tips!

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp of coffee or 2 tsp of Orzo Coffee*
  • 200-250ml skimmed milk/milk alternative
  • 1 tsp cocoa
  • 1.5 tsp xylitol**
  • Ice-cubes to serve

*Orzo is a naturally caffeine-free barley coffee .. I’ve also tried this recipe with Beanies Flavoured Coffee – Cinder Toffee, and it tasted incredible!

**Xylitol is a sugar alternative that is low calorie and low carb, tastes delicious and is kind to teeth too! You could swap it for stevia (natural sweetener).

P.S I have also tried this recipe with half a frozen banana and it tasted amazing – like a creamy chocolate, coffee smoothie *yum*!

    I love my coffee first thing in the morning, in bed, lovingly made by my hubby! It’s my rocket fuel to kick start my day and my morning workout!

    Tried this today – soo yummy! I blended all the ingredients, including the ice! It was like a cross between a creamy milkshake and a slush-puppy! Tasted so good – hard to believe it’s healthy :)
