Incredible! 5.0/5
(1 rating)

This is wonderful compared to McDonalds or Tim hortons mix, I have substituded splenda inplace of suger to lower calories, could be done with suger This is the base recipie I use..I plan on increasing the coffee& Cocoa & splenda to have a richer drink..( I am used to black coffee:) but is very awsome! This is a good start of a base that you could do with many other options( using flavored dry creamer, sugar instead of splenda, adding whipcream & drizzling chocolate like the high end coffee shops..) I hope you enjoy this as much as I have!
