I had a friend come over who loves the Blended Mocha Cappuccino from Starbucks, and I wanted to surprise her with a lower calorie version of this recipe that still tasted great. This was my excuse to come up with a low-calorie substitution… like I really need an excuse! This Blended Mocha Cappuccino is delicious and easy, and has protein and calcium and really gives you that kick of caffeine you craving.
I made it with my Fat Free Chocolate Syrup, free of preservatives and thickening agents and even more delicious and rich than Hershey’s Syrup! Compare this to a Mocha Frappuccino at Starbucks at 500 Calories.
