I have a very busy schedule and my daily to do lists are always growing. Being a Pre-K teacher is where my mornings begin but my days don’t end until well into the evening after my four year old daughter is asleep. My week day mornings always begin with a cup of coffee. My love for caffeine always has me trying new brands, flavors, and recipes but I rarely find something new that I would include on my future grocery shopping lists. I was so excited when I heard International Delight had a light version of their prepared iced coffee. This past year I’ve lost almost 40 pounds and definitely want to maintain my weight. Loving sugary caffeinated drinks certainly isn’t making it easy. I forfeit the ability to eat many other treats because of the calories I consume in my morning routine. A light iced coffee sounded like something I needed! I went shopping at Walmart and brought home the mocha flavor. Then I had some fun creating a drink perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. My low calorie mocha mint iced coffee is definitely how I will be starting my mornings this week!
- International Delight Light Iced Coffee – mocha flavor
- fat free whipped topping
- peppermint extract

Begin by mixing one cup of iced coffee and a drop of peppermint extract. More or less peppermint can be added according to your taste preference.
Pour over crushed ice.
Top with whipped topping and green sugar.
Enjoy your morning coffee and don’t feel guilty because you’ve just saved more than half the calories you normally drink! Plus, think of the money you’ve saved by making this yummy drink at home!
