So I am kind of addicted to Starbucks’ peppermint mocha. However, the calorie count is NOT kind. For the grande version, it’s 410 calories!
Even the skinny grande version is 160 calories. Nuts.
So I developed a delicious-tasting (better tasting, in my opinion, because the Starbucks chocolate is a little bitter) alternative for 40 measly calories! I thought I’d share because it allows me to indulge without feeling guilty. Here’s how it goes:
Brew 16 oz. of your favorite black coffee. – 5 calories
Add 1 tbsp of International Delight Hershey’s Chocolate Caramel creamer – 35 calories
Add a splash of peppermint extract and whatever no-calorie sweetner you want – 0 calories
Yes, it’s 40 calories! So delish!
