Almond Mocha Mocktail 120-Calories

I love a foo foo coffee drink in the morning, and I am always looking for ways to make it low-calorie without sacrificing taste.  I came up with this drink on the fly, and it was delicious. 


2 tsp. Instant Espresso
8 oz. Light Chocolate Soy Milk or Chocolate Almond Milk
2 Emerald Dark Chocolate Cocoa Roasted Almonds, Crushed, to rim the glass
1 tsp. Hershey's Chocolate Syrup, to rim the glass


Blend the instant espresso and chocolate milk in a blender or Magic Bullet. You may add ice cubes if you wish.

Crush the two almonds in a plastic bag using a rolling pin. Or blend in a spice blender.

Use the chocolate syrup to coat the rim of the glass.

Then dip the rim in the crushed almonds to garnish.

Serving Size: 1 Mocktail
