I’m going to let you in on a little secret.
Sometimes I don’t drink my coffee until I get to work so that I have incentive to get to the office. After waking up by 6am, going to the gym, showering, getting dressed, making lunch and eating breakfast, it is a long way to go to that first sip of coffee around 9am9:30. But it is something to look forward to and sometimes we all need a little motivation to go to work.
But over the last few months, I’ve been cheating on my routine. The humid summer made hot coffee unappealing so I switched to iced coffee. And at $2+ a pop, I started making my own. That means coffee is enjoyed on my way to work and that walk up Park Avenue is a little slower than it used to be.
When I received samples of the new Godiva Coffee flavors in the mail, I couldn’t wait to incorporate them into my morning. The Pumpkin Spice coffee in iced form is the perfect way to ease into fall and I can’t wait to try the Caramel Pecan Bark. I have a feeling my walk to the office is going to get slower and slower.
Skinny Pumpkin Spice Mocha Iced Latte
Yield: Serves 1
- 1/2 cup strong brewed Godiva Pumpkin Spice coffee
- 1/2 tablespoon good quality unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 packet splenda, stevia or other sweetener of choice*
- 1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (skim milk, soy milk, etc. can be used as replacement)
- 1 1/2 cups ice cubes
- Fill a tall glass with ice cubes
- Spoon cocoa and sweetener over ice
- Pour coffee and milk over ice; stir to combine
Use sweetener to taste. I like a little less than 1 packet, but I don’t like my drinks too sweet.
