Frozen Mocha Frappe
Sunday, August 01, 2010
Do you love the mocha frappe's from McDonald's? I've figured out how to make them - not only cheaper, but with about 1/6 the calories of the original (560 calories for a 16oz!!). You'll need to plan ahead and you'll need a few tools - but you probably already have them. You'll need some ice cube trays, a coffee maker and a blender. The day before, make about 1/2 a pot of REALLY strong coffee. Let cool and then put in the ice cube trays and freeze overnight. To make the frappe, you'll need 6 of the coffee cubes, 1 cup skim milk, 2T chocolate syrup and 2 packets of your favorite no calorie sweetner. Put all of this in the blender and blend until smooth. Pour into TWO 16oz cups and add 1/4 cup light whipped topping and a swirl of chocolate syrup. Yummo! (costs about 50¢ to make and only 100 calories per 16oz serving!!!)

I've been a cheapskate just about all my life. In doing so I've learned to do just about everything. I can sew, paint, hang wallpaper, install tile and flooring, pull and replace toilets, sinks, garbage disposals and faucets. Remove and replace ceiling fixtures and fans, replace outlets and switches, I've installed windows (both on houses and on computers!), I can rehab almost anything from furniture (repair, reupholster and refinish) to computers (I built my husband a good laptop using three broken ones that I got for free)! I've taken cheap to a whole new level!
