Afternoon Pick Me Up… Frozen Coffee with Nutella Filled Cookies

Why should the kids get all the snacks? After all, you’ve had a long hard day/week/hour too! How about a “pick me up” and a treat. What could be better than a frozen iced coffee drink? Here is a low-fat/low-calorie version with additional treat and splurge options below. Throw in a nutella filled cookie and indulge.

Frozen Iced Coffee with Nutella Filled Cookies

Total Time: 5-7 minutes
Skill Level: Easy

Ingredients

  • Cold Coffee or Espresso (we used leftover morning coffee chilled in the fridge until the afternoon)
  • Crushed Ice
  • Skim or Low- fat Milk
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Splenda (or other low-calorie sweetener)
  • Vanilla Wafers
  • Nutella

Optional coffee ingredients: vanilla ice cream, vanilla low-fat yogurt, flavored coffee cream, half & half, caramel or powdered coco.

Instructions

  1. Put crushed ice in a blender.
  2. Add cold “black” coffee or espresso.
  3. Add milk, splash of vanilla extract, splenda.
  4. Blend until creamy and icy. Adjust flavors as desired.
  5. Sprinkle powdered coco or drizzle carmel on top.
  6. Spread Nutella between 2 vanilla wafers. Serve with coffee and enjoy.

Version #2 “Treat”

Add vanilla ice cream or low-fat vanilla yogurt (in place of the vanilla extract). This will result in a coffee smoothly.

Version #3 “Splurge”

Use half & half or flavored coffee cream in place of the milk (store bought or home-made).
