Trying to lose weight? This Skinny Mocha Frappe recipe will help you stick to your resolutions!
So 2014 is here, and lots of us are probably trying to eat healthy, lose weight, yada yada yada. If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know that I’m in the middle of week 4 of my new diet. It’s been great so far, and I am definitely adjusting to the whole “eat healthier” thing, but everyone needs a treat now and then, right?
Well, my diet might be structured, but I had to come up with a way to treat myself within my diet plan. So I came up with this drink. You know the one you spend $5.95 on at a cafe or restaurant? Yep, same thing. Except it costs pennies in ingredients, and takes about a minute and a half to make. Awesome, right?
I think so. Happy 2014! Happy dieting!
