Are you craving an Iced Coffee but don't want the calories that come with it? Then this drink is for you!

Many iced coffees from fast food places are delicious and great for a treat once a while, but sometimes it can be addicting to the consume and can lead you to consume a surplus of the popular high in calorie, caffeinated and addicting, sugary drinks. And, not to mention, it is pricey.

If you were to buy an iced coffee for $3 a day, that would make it $21 per week and approximately $90 a month and $1080 a year alone! And that is only if you were to buy one per day.

Summer is also coming up and many of you guys will be looking to hit your coffee cravings with a nice refreshing cup of iced coffee.

In fact, many iced coffees from fast food places can range around 150-300 calories, so these calories can definitely add up over time and rack up those pesky unwanted and unexpected pounds! This is a great and healthy alternative for your favorite iced coffee drinks. You won't even have to sacrifice the taste!

This recipe is low-calorie, so you can just about drink it as much as you would like. This recipe is 29 calories so you can probably end up drinking about 5 of these servings to make up for just one serving of a regular iced coffee from McDonalds. Enjoy!


What You Will Need:

  • unsweetened almond milk (I prefer using Almond Breeze that is 30-calories per 240 ml)
  • cold brew coffee (Starbucks or Stōk brand) you can usually find this in the dairy aisle near the milk and coffee creamers; but for this recipe I will be using Stōk.
  • Torani Sugar-Free Syrup (I use the vanilla sugar free syrup, but you can choose whichever sugar free syrup you like)

*all of these ingredients can be located at your local grocery store, including wal-mart!

Recipe:

  1. Get your favorite cup and pour desired amount ice into your cup.

  2. Pour 140 ml of Stōk cold brew coffee into your cup.

  3. Pour 100 ml of almond milk* and mix until blended.

  4. Add the desired amount of sugar free syrup until you get the sweetness you desire.

  5. Stir well and enjoy!

    *this recipe is customizable, you can choose whichever plant-based milk you prefer, but the calories will be different
