We're big fans of Starbucks. But when the coffee chain comes out with a drink that's way higher in calories than need be, we bypass the real deal and make a delicious low-calorie swap... much like this one, our Cherry Bomb Iced Mocha!
One 25-calorie packet hot cocoa mix (like Swiss Miss Diet or Nestlé Fat Free)
2 tsp. instant coffee granules
2 tsp. fat-free non-dairy powdered creamer (like the kind by Coffee-mate)
1 1/2 tsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
1/4 cup light vanilla soymilk
2 tbsp. sugar-free calorie-free black cherry syrup (Torani's is the best!)
1/4 cup Fat Free Reddi-wip
Place cocoa mix, coffee granules, powdered creamer, and 1 tsp. chocolate chips in a large glass. Add 1/4 cup very hot water and stir until ingredients have completely dissolved.
Add soymilk, syrup, and 1/2 cup cold water. Mix well. Add lots of ice (crushed is best!), and top with Reddi-wip. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 tsp. chocolate chips. Now enjoy!
Serving Size: 1 large drink with whipped topping (entire recipe)
