About three years ago whenever I was with Kelli and we’d pass a McDonalds we’d stop and get drinks…she’d get a strawberry-banana fruit smoothie and I’d get a chocolate chip frappe. Well then I started reading the calorie count..UGH. I compromised and started getting smalls then compromised even more and started getting caramel instead of chocolate chip.
Then one day I decided that I was ready to make the next compromise and try iced coffee.
I am not a coffee drinker. I have tried to be but it gives me gut rot and I just don’t like it. I never thought I’d go so far as to drink iced coffee either..but alas, here I am. I am an iced coffee drinker. My favorite is McDonalds caramel iced coffee but Kwik Star has a mocha iced coffee that I really like too.
I have gotten to be enough of a drinker that I’d really like to make it at home…and so I have. The key is this flavoring that I bought at Wal-mart.
I’m still working and playing with what I make all the time but I’ve come to something along these lines…ice
a half of glass of coffee
a half of glass of whole milk
a tablespoon of flavoring
a half pack of truvia
It’s not quite as good as what I purchase in town but I am happy with the substitute and glad I can make it.
I’m definitely happy with it.
