Hey guys! Sorry I’ve been MIA for a couple days…we’ve been having a busy, fun time with some of my family visiting.
Some posts are worth the wait. I have discovered the best coffee ever. I’m so excited about it…I don’t know why I didn’t think of it sooner! I have a confession…I love those frilly-topped-with-whipped-cream coffee “fru-fru” drinks (so I call them). You know, those beautiful concoctions at Starbucks that are loaded with sugar and whipped cream and taste kind of…out of this world.
And I love the more simple coffee frappuccinos. Sweet and ice cold with the foamy milk on top. I could have them every day.
So…now I am. It’s a lovely ritual.
It’s all rather happy, because I made a healthy version that is less than 50 calories and has no sugar! How’s that?!
Healthy Coffee Frappuccino
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk*
- 1 tsp. instant coffee
- 2 packets Truvia
- 4-5 ice cubes
- ½ tsp. pure vanilla
*I used this almond milk recipe
Blend until it becomes the frothy, cold goodness it’s supposed to. I garnished mine with a little organic hot chocolate powder. Serves 1.

Here’s a few photos of our family time. With almost all the nieces and nephews here, there were 16 of them running around. They have such fun together!
We had a bunch of races and games planned the one afternoon which all the kids loved.
One of my nieces. I love this photo.
Another one of my beautiful nieces. The girls totally rawk out the boys in this family. I only have 6 nephews out of the 18!
These are my grandparents and all my siblings (except for one sister who couldn’t make it out!). It was my Grandma’s 90th birthday so we all got together and had a party! (Doesn’t she look amazing for 90?! And she has hardly any wrinkles!) I’m so blessed to have the family I do…God has been so gracious to us.
Do you like fancy coffee drinks? What’s your favourite coffee beverage?
