yummy coffee drink…

I always liked a good swap.  Nooo, not a swap meet…..but I love finding a good recipe that can be tweaked so as not to make me……swell.  (code for fat)….

This looks yummy!!!!  (Thanks again, Hungry Girl!!)

ll Good Things Must Come to a Blend…

We can’t remember a time without freezy-licious blended coffee drinks, can you? Get your blender out and whip up our latest lightened-up swap ASAP! Sweet caramel insanity…

Ingredients:
1 tsp. instant coffee granules
2 no-calorie sweetener packets (like Splenda or Truvia)
1 tbsp. plus 1 tsp. fat-free or light caramel dip (like the kinds by Marzetti), divided
1/4 cup light vanilla soymilk
One 60-calorie sugar-free caramel pudding snack (like the kind by Snack Pack)
1 1/2 cups crushed ice or 8 – 12 ice cubes
2 tbsp. Fat Free Reddi-wip

Directions:
In a tall glass, combine coffee granules, sweetener, and 1 tbsp. caramel dip. Add 1/4 cup very hot water and stir until ingredients have dissolved. Transfer to a blender. Rinse the glass, if needed, and set aside.

To the blender, add all other ingredients except the remaining 1 tsp. caramel dip and the Reddi-wip. Blend at high speed until completely mixed. Transfer to the tall glass and set aside.

Place remaining 1 tsp. caramel dip in a small microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 10 seconds, or until very warm.

Top drink with Reddi-wip and drizzle with the warm caramel dip. Enjoy!
