How To Make light summer drinks

  • 1
    Frosty Mochas 1 1/2 cups 2% or skim milk 1/3 cup chocolate syrup 2 tablespoons instant coffee 3 1/2 cups ice cubes In a blender, place all ingredients except and blend on medium speed until well mixed. Add ice cubes a few at a time, blending after each addition until smooth. Pour into 4 glasses. Serve immediately. Notes: I included this recipe for those that might not have brewed coffee on hand.

    Quick Frappé For One Ingredients: 1/2 cup of milk 2 Tablespoons Hershey's chocolate syrup 1 Tablespoon of granulated sugar 1/2 cup coffee, cooled (I used leftover) 1 cup ice (4-5 cubes) Add all the ingredients to the blender and process until all is mixed and frothy. The ice cubes can be a little chunky if you wish. Notes: I use low fat chocolate milk sometimes, and skip the sugar, which is really good too. This makes one bigger glass, and is SO good on a hot day.
