Holiday drinks have arrived at Starbucks!!! Caramel Brulee Lattes, and Peppermint Mochas, they are so luxuriously smooth and sweet to sip on during the cold months.
Unfortunately, for the waistline, the calories and sugar content in an average size holiday flavored beverage from Starbucks are way over my daily limits for one drink.
Eeekk!! What is a girl to do?!?
Determined to enjoy the holiday goodness, I set out to craft my own delectable beverage.
Today, the universe was on my side, as I just happen to stumble across the perfect ingredients on a trip to the grocery store. I picked up:
•Community Coffee Dark Chocolate Peppermint K-Cups
•Swiss Miss Reduced Calorie Hot Chocolate
•Fat Free Half & Half
•A Mini Chocolate Bar
My inner barestia got to work combining the above mentioned ingredients and…
A steaming hot Peppermint Mocha with only 85 calories, 1 gram of fat, and 5 grams of sugar. Did I mention it was only a fraction of the cost of Starbucks?
Mission accomplished! I’m ready to enjoy a fabulous holiday drink, while keeping my waistline intact.
