DIY Frappuccino 100 calories 12 carbs

I can't cook, but I can put stuff together.......
The other afternoon, while working on the computer, I wanted a good old fashioned pick me up. So, I got into my car and drove to the supermarket and purchased these Starbucks Frappuccinos. I went for the 100 calorie Splenda version, but you can go with whichever one you want. They were on sale for $3.99. What a bargain.

Yum, can't wait to prepare......

So, I put in some ice, dug out a water goblet ($1, at the Dollar Store), makes drinking water fun. Okay, not really, but it does feel nicer. Anyway, put in some ice, topped with whipped cream, and ready to drink. 100 calories, and 12 carbs, I did use a lite whipped cream, and a very small bit. Whipped cream 25 calories and 3 carbs.

If you have chocolate syrup or caramel syrup in your frige, a drizzle in the glass would add a nice look to it too. Just don't go overboard.

I am not a big coffee drinker, and like all good frappuccino's I like them after they sit and water down a bit, so this will last me awhile. Yes, I did cut the straw to fit the glass. A tall thin glass would be fun too, I just didn't have any like that.

Stirred in the whipped and topped off with the rest of the bottle. Yum.

Like I said, I can't cook, but I can prepare.


Great fun afternoon treat.
