Happy Friday, y’all! All week long my newsfeed has been EXPLODING with pics of the new unicorn frappuccino at Starbucks. Haven’t seen it? Oh, Imma show you:

Looks magical, right? Not so magical? The nutrition facts:

Yeah. So, if you still want your unicorn fix but without the sugar coma, I’ve got what you need!

 

Instead of the sugar-splosion, have some low fat ice cream and sprinkle on chocolate shaving with this!

Chillax this weekend in a nice, hot bubble bath filled with this amazing concoction from Etsy store Two Wild Hares:

Try It Tuesday

Even though its been chilly outside, I have been craving cold drinks: snowcones, Boba tea, and frappuccinos. But, Starbucks is super-crazy expensive (and fattening) so I searched the Pinterest-sphere and found a recipe for frappuccinos that won’t bust your wallet or your belt!

original

 

 

Here’s what you need:

~2 tbsp coffee instant granules

~2 tbsp coffee creamer

~1/2 cup milk

~8-10 ice cubes

~Splenda (or your favorite low-cal sweetener) to taste

 

All you need to do is blend everything together:

And serve:

It was pretty good! I don’t think I needed tablespoons of coffee granules, though. The coffee taste was like a roundhouse kick to the taste buds. Next time, I’ll probably use 1-1 1/2 tablespoons of coffee (and actually remember to add Splenda). I’d REALLY like to get some Peppermint Mocha creamer and add some crushed peppermint to the top! Mmm….

(Also, the entire recipe was only 75 calories! What a deal!)
