Easy Cafe Coffee Drink!

Do you love the coffee drinks you get from Starbucks? Or even the cheaper versions from McDonald's or other fast food (fast drink) places...but hate the prices?

You can make a DELICIOUS version of these drinks in the comfort of your own a fraction of the cost! It's easy! Really! 

Just follow Kitt Cat's simple instructions for a YUMMY coffee delight!

You will need:

Instant Coffee
Boiling hot water
Flavored syrup
ice cubes
coffee creamer 
whip cream
chocolate syrup

First, you need some instant coffee. Regular or decaf...your pick!

Put two spoons full of instant coffee into a tall cup or glass. I use Folger's Decaf.

Add a tablespoon of flavoring. I like Torani's sugar free Classic Caramel. You find these syrups in the coffee section of your grocery store or Walmart.  They come in regular and sugar free vanilla, caramel and hazelnut!
Mmmmm - - - sometimes I add another 1/2 tablespoon of flavoring!

Next, add  three tablespoons of boiling hot water - for a stronger coffee taste, only add two tablespoons of water. I heat my water in the microwave for 2 minutes while I am assembling the other ingredients.

Now you want to add ice cubes...if your glass is tall...add about 10 ice cubes. If your glass is short, add only eight!

Now you have coffee, flavored syrup, hot water, and ice cubes.

The next step is to add some creamer...I like French Vanilla flavor! I add about 1 inch of creamer to my glass. Stir with a spoon!

Now, add some milk...filling the glass/cup all the way to the top!

Stir, stir, stir up the goodness!

Now comes the fun part! Add some whipped cream to the top!

Oh! I am making myself thirsty! Your creation is almost finished!

The final touch is a drizzle of Walden Farms Sugar Free - Calorie Free chocolate syrup!

The chocolate syrup makes it so special! And not a single calorie involved! You can find Walden Farms syrups on the grocery aisle with ice cream toppings!

Now, just pop in a straw and enjoy your Cafe Coffee drink! Sluuurrrpppppppp!!!  

Kitt Kat's Simple Hints:

*Make your cafe coffee decaf if you get the jitters
*Use low fat or sugar free creamer and whip cream 
*Use sugar free syrups
*Use whole milk for a richer drink...or low fat or skim milk for a lower fat version
*Occasionally I enjoy a coffee treat from Starbucks or McDonald's. When I do, I save and reuse my cup!
