Healthy Recipe- Homemade Frappucino

Okay, so it's not totally without calories and carbs, but the storebought Frappucinos pack a whopping 350 calories and 33gr of carb in a single bottle (and they don't come in decaf). This one clocks in at 85 calories and 7 gr of carb, and it's mighty tasty- thick and sweet and easy to make, great for a treat, or even as dessert. I did see a recipe for something similar on someone's blog, but I can't find the link for attribution, so whoever invented this- thanks!

P.S. The cup is an insulated, reusable one that my sister gave me- I love it. She also gave me the French Press. It's handy having a relative who works at Starbucks.

Homemade Frappucino

1 tbsp sugar-free instant pudding (any flavor)
1 packet Splenda or other no-calorie sweetener
1/2 cup 1% milk
Glug of any sugar-free coffee flavoring
12 ozs cold coffee

Mix the pudding, Splenda, milk and flavoring in a 16 oz cup- the pudding has a tendency to clump, so if you have one of those little drink blenders, use that to stir everything up well. Allow the mixture to set for 5 minutes or so, to thicken. Stir in the coffee until everything is well blended. Drink.

(my favorite combo is chocolate pudding and Kahlua sugar-free coffee flavoring)

Mmmm, sounds great. I can't wait to try it. I love coffee, but in this hot weather it's just too hot.
