Treat Yourself! Skinny Latte

With the New Year comes new goals and like many, I’m aiming to get fit and drop a few pounds. For me, it‘s all about making exercise a priority and changing my diet to opt for healthier versions of the things I consume on a regular basis. This year, I’ve started off in full force at the gym and in the spirit of healthier alternatives, I’m drinking Skinny Lattes.

A regular 8oz. latte has 150 calories and 70 calories from fat while an 8oz. Skinny Latte has only 90 calories and 0 fat calories. This one small change in my diet is saving me 60 calories per day. That might not seem like much, but it adds up to 21,900 calories per year!

A Skinny Latte is made with espresso and non-fat milk instead of whole or 2% milk. If you want to add some flavoring and keep it skinny, you can add sugar-free syrup in place of regular syrup or flavoring. Monin Sugar-Free Syrups have 0 calories while regular syrups add about an additional 100 calories to your drink.

Thanks for the recipe Morgan....I think I'll use my double boiler to help with my double chins;)

Try adding a teaspoon or so of 2% o whole milk to your nonfat milk. It lets the nonfat milk work more like the real thing, giving it a more creamy texture and allowing it to work better for art. Learned this in a local barista class and it works for me. Give it a try!
