Iced Coffee

For all you coffee lovers out there, this is the post for you.

I had a coupon to try the new International Delights Iced Coffee, and thought it was time to give it a whirl.

I love mocha and thought it sounded like my best option.   We all know I'm a Coffeemate lady, but I thought it would be ok to try out the International Delights.

Being that I'm trying to lose weight, and it is working, I watch every calorie I consume.  Here is the ID.
Can you see that?  150 calories for 1 cup.  UGH, I guess that's ok if you have the calories, but I found a way to save a few calories.

Make your own.  I brewed some extra coffee in the morning, which is only 5 calories a cup, let it sit until I was ready for it, and then made my own ice coffee.
I used my 1 cup of coffee, added 3 tablespoons of my favorite creamer, which is 105 calories for the 3 tablespoons + 5 for the coffee, making it 110 calories, and it's my favorite flavor!  Saving 40 calories!  I can eat 1 cookie, or some fruit with my coffee for 40 calories.  Just another reason for me to choose Coffeemate!  


What are you drinking?  Have a terrific Thursday!
