The 100 cal Iced Coffee
I have a thing for coffee. I like it black, hot or cold, or sweet and creamy. It is warming up and I am gravitating more to iced coffee. I also tend to crave less sweet stuff if I have had a sweet creamy coffee, so it really is a good thing.
I have a Keurig, but it doesn't have the iced coffee setting and I don't buy the special iced coffee k-cups. I'm pretty sure that it would be just the same with a cup of coffee from a regular coffee pot.
You will need
2 tsp. sugar
2 tbsp. creamer (35 cal. per 1tbsp. serving - I like the Natural Bliss Sweet Cream from Coffee Mate)
1 cup prepared coffee - a dark roast (I use a k-cup made on the 7 oz. or Medium setting)
1 large cup
- Put 2 tsp. of sugar in bottom of your cup (assuming you are using a keurig, if not put sugar into coffee after it has been brewed)
- Let your coffee cool for a few minutes
- Add creamer, and fill your cup with ice.
You have just saved yourself about $4, a trip through the drive-thru, and some mega calories.
