I was looking for a little treat one evening and fresh out of ideas. On a lark, I wandered over to the Weight Watchers UK website and found this zippy beverage idea. Have tried it a few times and this is my revised version of the original. Though the recipe shown here serves two, you can very easily scale this up to serve as many as you like.
My brother sent me an invite to join him at the Grandparents.com website & I get periodic emails from them on the art of grandparenting. The most recent email had a fun article on kid-friendly mocktails & suggested that kids should have spec beverages for their parties & also tasty + festive beverages to enjoy while their elders drink cocktails on spec occasions & holidays. Per the intro, “Shirley Temple, take a bow & step aside. Some new entertainers have taken center stage. The effervescent, sometimes sparkly, always refreshing & totally non-alcoholic mocktails are beverages that kids & partygoers of all ages will enjoy.” I am entering the recipes in pairs, groups or individually based on # of servings. *Cheers* !
I love iced tea with sugar and lemon, but because I am a diabetic I had to limit my intake of this refreshing beverage. By experimenting several times, I came up with this recipe which is "legal" for me. I find it just as tasty and refreshing as the "real stuff".
A thick icy cold milkshake with just the right blend of chocolate and coffee flavors. We found it surprisingly similar to a Wendy's Frosty. Plan to freeze a few coffee ice cubes in advance. I created this diabetic-friendly recipe with "light" and "sugar-free" ingredients for RSC #12. The shake can also be made using "regular" versions of the ingredients. We like it best that way!
This is too easy, and is an almost nightly ritual in my house. I've based the measurements on a recipe from another site, but that one calls for water to thin the Nutella. I've never tried it that way. The cooking time is approximate.
