One thing that has been hard on me to give up on with this diet is my beloved Mocha! I had no idea I was drinking almost 400 calories each time...and that was with skim milk?!?
Of course you can go to any coffee shop anymore and order a drink sugar free with skim...but they all seem to have a strange aftertaste. I just can't get into that...
This past week I bought some Kroger brand hot chocolate (no sugar added) that was only 50 calories a package. I didn't have high hopes, but for $1 it was worth a try!
The result was really, really good! It didn't have that strange aftertaste or a fake chocolate flavor. I decided to try to make a homemade mocha. Now it didn't taste exactly like a Starbucks Mocha, but for a diet it was pretty tasty!
1 package Hot Chocolate (no sugar added)
1 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee
1 Tablespoon Light Cool Whip
Follow package directions on hot chocolate and add in the instant coffee. Top with the cool whip and enjoy!
