2 1/2 cups (serving size: 1/2 cup)

Many gourmet coffee drinks have a high fat content because they're made with whole milk, or even half-and-half or cream. We can help you out here with our low-fat, iced Caramelized Espresso Frappe.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine boiling water and espresso; stir until coffee dissolves. Pour into an ice cube tray; freeze 4 hours or until firm.

Step 2

Combine sugar and 2 tablespoons water in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat; cook until sugar dissolves. Continue cooking an additional 5 minutes or until golden. Remove from heat; carefully stir in 2 tablespoons water with a whisk (mixture will bubble vigorously). Let cool.

Step 3

Combine caramelized sugar, milk, and cocoa mix in a blender; process until well-blended. With blender on, add coffee ice cubes, 1 at a time; process until smooth. Add crushed ice; process until smooth. Serve immediately.

This was fantastic. Perfect substitute for a trip to the coffee shop on a hot day. I added a dollop of fat-free whipped topping to give it a coffee-shop feel. I might try replacing the caramelized sugar with a tablespoon of caramel sauce to speed up the process next time.
