FIRST PLACE Cappuccino Mix (a repost)
Several years ago I was asked to speak at a FIRST PLACE Victory Celebration for 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. They 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.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
