In case you haven’t already guessed, I love coffee. Whatever the form or flavor, it is easily my favorite drink, partly for the caffeine but also for the taste. Similar to those who enjoy the entire experience of smoking a pipe or cigar, I enjoy everything about coffee.
When I was young and single, I would indulge myself in the summers by regularly purchasing coffee granitas at the local coffee place. They were cool and sweet, giving me the extra jolt I needed to make it through the day. Luckily, at the time I had extra cash to spend on myself, and I could also afford the extra calories. Those days are unfortunately no longer.
Do I need to do without frozen coffee treats? Not necessarily. If you’re like me, you’ll find a way to get what you want, even if it means making your own. In this case, I happened to see someone post the recipe for the EatingWell Frozen Mochaccino on Facebook. Although a little more work than brewing a cup of coffee, this drink will certainly satisfy any cravings for those expensive coffee treats.
Too, you make it with low-fat milk and a little maple syrup, and so the drink itself is much lower in calories. I personally used almond milk when I made our drinks, and they were delicious. This would also make it possible for a vegan or someone who is allergic to milk to enjoy their own frozen treat. Low in calories, this recipe is still sweet enough to satisfy.
Whether you’re simply trying to save some money or some calories, I would highly recommend trying this recipe. Although it takes a little effort and planning, it is definitely worth it for this homemade coffee drink.
