Bad news. You might totally love me or completely hate me for this one.

It’s a toss up.

And since the popularity of this post comes down to a few very personal preferences, let’s take a quiz:

  1. On a scale of 1 – 10 (with 10 being the highest), how much do you love coffee?
  2. Samoa cookies: love ‘em or leave ‘em?
  3. How badly do you want to fit into your swimsuit this summer?

Correct answers:

  1. (Trick question!) What? who doesn’t love coffee?
  2. Duh, love ‘em.
  3. Not a chance in Hades that’s happening, so let’s do this.


If you got 2 out of 3 answers correct, or if you’re just highly intrigued by the thought of a coffee/Girl Scout Cookie mashup, then get thee to a blender stat.

This frappucino did a number on me.

A little number I like to call no-solid-food-all-day.

Or why-am-I-wide-awake-at-midnight. Or are-we-really-out-of-coffee-already.

Usually, I’m a coffee purist with nothing but a little honey and a dash of almond milk in my cup, but what can I say, the summer makes me frisky.  Frisky for iced mochas topped with toasted coconut flakes, creamy caramel, fluffy coconut cream and maybe a sprinkling of shaved chocolate for dramatic effect.  These make getting up in the morning worth it.

Thankfully these are “skinny” frappucinos, and by that I mean dairy-free, refined sugar-free, and gluten-free. So while they’re not calorie-free (don't worry, I'm working on it...), we will at least keep the damage to a minimum and you can join the liquid diet movement with me.
