Skinny Daily Post


Ya gotta try this! It’s so easy, and much more weight-management friendly than those coffee-shop treats!

I made an entire 12-cup pot of decaf Bavarian Chocolate coffee. It came from a chain of coffee shops in Virginia, but trust me, if I hadn’t had this around, I would have used some store-bought French roast.

Then, while it was still warm, it went into a 2-quart pitcher along with one packet of sugar free hot chocolate mix [60 calories], and 3 tablespoons of a good quality regular cocoa mix [it had 80 calories for 3 tablespoons.

So, this 2 quarts of iced mocha has about 150 added calories, even though I strongly suspect that the chocolate that’s in the ground coffee added some as well – let’s call it 50 calories.

200 calories for the pitcher, eight 8-oz servings – that’s 25 calories per serving!

Blend this with some ice, or add whatever else. I mix mine with some soy creamer and pour it over ice.

Happy happy happy!!!!!

    Jane, I love this idea! I love iced coffee drinks but never order them anymore because I know how full they are of fat and calories. I refuse to waste over 500 calories on something I can’t even chew (unless you count the ice, which I don’t). I am going to the store today to buy some sugar-free hot chocolate mix and will try your concoction. Thanks for the idea!!

    I use chocolate flavored “light” soy milk instead of regular soy or cow’s milk as an add-in to my decaf. Tastes great and no more calories than if I just added low-fat soy milk. Similar taste to adding hot chocolate mix but without lactose for those of us who are lactose intolerant. I also enjoy iced coffee in the summer. GREAT to have a SkinnyDaily 2 days in a row!!!!!!!!!!!

    I rarely have an iced coffee treat mainly due to the price. This is a great alternative for me! My favorite coffee treat has like 1,000 calories and costs $5+.

    Cora have you tried asking for skim milk and sugarfree syrups in your iced latte?

    This sounds great – I can’t wait to try it. I am always looking for something to stand in for chocolate, and it’s hot here – 100 degrees today. I’m going to try Greta’s idea on the chocolate soy milk too. And it’s nice to read SDP two days in a row, too.

    I’d love to hear more about your favorite treats. I’m trying to figure out some things that won’t leave me feeling deprived or guilty 😉

    Thanks Jane!
    my around the corner coffee house/ get away closed a couple months ago abruptly, and I have to say…. I was having issues!
    I have all the stuff ….right here at home to make this go!
    But I have yet another spin to put on it… since I am a surgery “convert” coffee is something we were ‘warned about” …. well the kid (thats my alter ego) found caffiene free herbal coffee… I tried it out on my husband…did not know the difference…made out of roasted carob, barley , chicory roots, dates, almonds, figs extract of mexican vanill and natural flavors, no propelyene glycol used (this right off the back of the pkg….
    ya’ll I really like it…. ooh this stuff is called “teeccino”…. if you are intereste it works in the drip pot, the filter cone and french press and Iced… yahoo. this is not a paid endorsement…

    I make my very own iced coffee this way:
    Brew 2 cups of strong black coffee and keep in the fridge. Each morning use 1/2 cup of coffee (or more to taste), 1/2 cup nonfat milk or soymilk (which I froth with my milk frother) and 2 tablespoons of sugar free favored syrup- such as caramel or vanilla. Serve over ice or simply chilled. 1 pt on WW for the milk 🙂

    I wanted to let you know I made your iced mocha as suggested, and it was fantastic! I added a little fat free coffee creamer to mine and it was delicious! I am keeping a pitcher of the iced mocha in my fridge from now on and will just throw some ice in a glass, pour the iced mocha over it and add my fat free creamer and voila: a much-needed caffeine jolt (I used regular coffee, not decaf) and a little chocolate treat! Thank you so much again for sharing this recipe! I have already passed it on to one friend and I will be sharing it with others.
