While we were away last week, you know I spent a lot of time in a certain Dunkin Donutsusing their Wi-Fi and sipping iced coffees.
Well on one of those occasions, I ended up splurging and ordering myself one of their Caramel Mocha Iced Coffees. I mean, I had been perched underneath the promotional poster for it all week, so I had to give it a try.
This morning, I got a major craving for one again, and I was *this close* to convincing myself that I needed to go out and get one. It IS Coffee Friday and all…
(For those of you reading who may be new to the bloggy, I used to declare Fridays “Coffee Friday” with a trip to Dunkin’ Donuts on my way to work as a treat for brewing my own coffee Monday-Thursday. I looked forward to it every week!)
But since we had just brewed up a brand new pitcher of iced coffee last night, I decided to save my $2.74 and make my own version.
First, I added some chocolate syrup and caramel to the bottom of the glass- probably about a teaspoon of each (which is already cutting boatloads of sugar, had I gotten it from DD).
Next, pour the iced coffee into the glass…
Top it off with some skim milk…
and you’ve got a homemade Caramel Mocha Iced Coffee.
Which, I must say, pairs rather nicely with a whopping cereal combo bowl.
Today’s combo was a triple threat: Quaker Oatmeal Squares + Kashi Heart to Heart + Kashi Golden Goodness + blueberries.
As usual with the Kashi Golden Goodness, I held off on adding my almond milk until after picture time was over. Soggy cereal = no good.
This bowl was massive, awesome, and delicious.
Happy Friday, friends!!
Question for the Morning:
Do you ever try to make homemade versions of your favorite restaurant/fast food items?
