Coffee is my vice. All kinds of coffee. Hot coffee, iced coffee, fresh coffee, coffee in my cup, coffee in my glass… well, you get the point. And I do drink several cups a day.
But going to a coffee house is just not in the budget for time or money anymore so I have to get creative at home if I want a good, specialty drink at home. You, know. Something easy to make that still feels like it was made especially for you?
A while back I found the best invention since cubed cheese and have now had International Delight Iced Coffee in my fridge since then. But, truthfully, the caloric count on the regular iced coffee limited my ‘spoil me’ time to once every few days or so. I am not a diet fanatic, but after a while, a lot of calories at a time just makes me feel too full.
So imagine my squealing, happy surprise when I went to the store the other day and found International Delight Iced Coffee LIGHT!! YES! Light!
Created with 1/3 fewer calories that the original delicious treat, the same Arabica beans are used, the same sweet and creamy taste is there… but it is 100 calories per serving! And a serving is a cup! Perfect for that little afternoon pick me up and treat!
I grabbed the Light version of Vanilla and Mocha flavors and headed home to make one of my favorite drinks! A Mocha Banana Strawberry Iced Coffee Smoothie!
This is so easy guys, and soooooo delicious! Just take a few strawberries, half a banana, some ice and a cup of the International Delight Iced Coffee and put them in a blender. Now, a little trick to make it more smooth and offset the crunchy of the ice is to add a dab of Lite Whipped Cream right into the blender too! Mix it all together, top it with whipped cream, a strawberry, some fun colored sprinkles to make it as pretty as you, and wala! A light smoothie that has all of the deliciousness of the original one!
I am SO excited! Because now that I know that the calories are seriously slashed, I can go back to having a fun treat in the afternoon if I want and still be able to button my jeans!
