FIRST PLACE Cappuccino mix

Recently I was asked to speak at a FIRST PLACE Victory Celebration as several ladies who had been working on becoming healthier the good old fashioned way(by eating right and exercising- and choosing to put Christ First in all they do)celebrated their collective weight loss of over 100 lbs.!

They shared several recipes and healthy-eating tips and encouraged each other and prayed together for many weeks then celebrated with a wonderful and healthy dinner/potluck that was WONDERFUL!

Now- you all know my philosophy about diet food...I normally don't like it at all- I'm an "Everything in Moderation" girl- literally. But I must admit- their buffet that evening was delicious!

And what was I doing there speaking to women who know how to eat properly? Well, I was encouraging them to keep the faith!!!!

I was given a bag full of goodies for my efforts and included in the bag was this YUMMY cappuccino mix! (Thank you Shelley Wilburn!)

You can make it too- and although they didn't give the fat/cal. info, by the looks of the ingredients, it can't be all that bad...especially in moderation.

So- here's what you need:

1 1/2 c. powdered fat-free non-dairy creamer
1/2 c cocoa powder
3/4 c. Splenda
2/3 c. decaffeinated instant coffee
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
Combine all; mix well and store in an air-tight container. When ready to use, add 3 level Tablespoons of mix to 1 1/2 c. boiling water. Stir and enjoy!

*Makes 16 servings.
