Blended Coffee

Hello everyone!

Well, the coffee obsession continues.  Much like Lorelai on Gilmore Girls I’m fairly certain that at some point I’m going to start requesting my favorite caffeinated beverage in IV form.  😉

Now, I love a good blended iced coffee as much as the next person.  Unfortunately they don’t tend to be the healthiest thing in the world.  And although I am the kind of person that wishes I could eat chocolate cake for breakfast, I have a sneaking suspicion that if I tried to do something like that my metabolism would chuckle, wave a magic wand over me, and instantly add five pounds to my waist.  😉

A lot of blended coffee drinks have about as much sugar as three cans of pop.  And the calories of some are probably about the amount you should have in a day.

So what’s a person to do when you want a blended, icy coffee drink, but don’t want a sugar bomb?  You make it yourself.  And it’s so easy!  Woohoo!  🙂

All this recipe requires are some of the coffee ice cubes I brought you a few posts ago, and your favorite milk or milk alternative.  Blend it up in your high-powered blender of choice and voila!  And if you want to add a touch of sugar, go ahead!

Another great part of this recipe is that you can customize the thickness.  If you want a fake-out ice cream with WAY less fat, just add less milk and your concoction will be super thick.  Perfect for a spoon.  Or add more milk for a smoothie-like consistency.

Coffee for everyone, for all hours, forever!  😀
