Summer Treats; Iced Coffee

Forgot the lashings of cream, ice cream and sugar!
Why would you when you can have 5 of these instead?

Get a tall glass, (it feels more special), stir some coffee powder in the bottom with a smidge of warm water until it forms a paste, add a hand full of ice cubes, and a cup (250mls) of low fat milk then top with cold water. Drink through a straw and voila! Iced coffee in 100 calories!
If you like your iced coffee a little sweeter, add 2 teaspoons of sugar when making the paste to bring it to 130ish calories. Not that I count calories, but plenty of people around me are at the moment.
You can try it with cocoa and sugar as well...
Who needs ice cream, cream & grated chocolate? Surely no one enjoys anything that heavy on a warm day?
Stay well,

  1. Yum!

    I love iced coffee, but am always put off ordering it when im out because of the copious amount of cream (usually fake ewwww) that it comes with.

    This sounds great! I will definitely be having it over summer.

  2. Me too, you can feel the fat in your mouth afterwards and it's revolting! Who wants that, ugh.

    Let me know how you go :)

  3. Mmmm I make something similar in summer, with espresso not instant, and then I blend it up with lots of ice. So good! x

  4. Oo never made it with espresso - why didn't I think of that! Yummm
