Are you sick of all these desserts yet?  You know, the pound cake.  The sundaes.  (And, if you’re my facebook or twitter follower, you may have seen a picture or two of cookies and cake this weekend.)


Good. Because I have another one for you!  Except this one is a little more… shall we say figure friendly?

Let’s face it.  We can’t just go around eating all these decadent desserts without exercising some sort of moderation.  (Well, I guess we can.  But we certainly wouldn’t like the results.)

Luckily, I was recently chosen to participate in the Sweet n’ Low Tastemaker program through DailyBuzz Food.**  It was just the inspiration I needed to create a delicious guilt-free dessert to share.

So today I present to you this delicious Guilt-Free Coffee Shake.  It’s low cal, low fat, sugar free and DELICIOUS!  It doesn’t get much better than that, folks. See for yourself!

Guilt-Free Coffee Shake


3/4 cup very strong coffee, cold
1 cup skim milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons cocoa powder
4 packets Sweet n’ Low

2 cups ice


Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend on high speed until ice is crushed and drink is smooth (about 30 seconds). Pour into two tall glasses and enjoy with a friend!

    I would love to stay in shape cause I am absolutely in love with food but coffee.. Unfortunately I am allergic to coffee T_T Are there any other ingredients that I could use to substitute coffee instead?
