In a perfect world, chocolate cake would have no calories – and hot cocoa with whipped cream would be good for you. Well, it’s not a perfect world. But I’ve got the perfect beverage for those icy cold days when you’ve got visions of sugarplums – make that a sweet coffee drink — dancing in your head!
Just in time for the coldest days of the year, Starbucks coffee has unveiled its new fabulous Natural Fusions flavors in cinnamon, caramel, and vanilla. Couple them with Torani’s equally fabulous new sugar-free coffee syrup flavors, and you’ve got a mighty tasty – and guilt-free! – combination.
Coffee Concoctions to Serve Up with a Smile
In general, if you offer someone a hot sugar-free beverage, they’ll sort of wrinkle their noses and either say, “Uh, I don’t like sugar-free foods” or “I know, I’m supposed to be on a diet, so all right….”
Try these treats to change their reaction — and treat yourself, too:
1. Starbucks Natural Fusions cinnamon flavor mixed with Torani sugar-free brown sugar cinnamon syrup:
Brew up a cup of the cinnamon flavor Starbucks for a sweet and spicy beverage. Stir in two tablespoons per cup of the sugar-free brown sugar cinnamon variety of Torani. This syrup adds a rich, multi-dimensional sweetening touch that will make you want to linger over it to savor the flavor.
2. Starbucks Natural Fusions vanilla flavor mixed with Torani sugar-free vanilla bean syrup:
Creamy vanilla flavor makes you know when it’s “real” vanilla, and that quality is present in both the Starbucks coffee and Torani syrup. Brew up the vanilla coffee, stir in a tablespoon of Torani vanilla bean syrup, and add a tablespoon of milk or cream for a slight addition of calories that’s worth the added flavor. Bliss in a cup!
3. Starbucks Natural Fusions caramel flavor mixed with Torani sugar-free almond syrup:
Elegant almond meets up with the sweetness of caramel to mingle and make for a flavor that resembles an expensive truffle! Brew up the caramel coffee and mix it with two tablespoons of the sugar-free almond syrup to bring out the full flavor of each.
And for Extra Beverage Variety
Got someone in your family or a friend who doesn’t like coffee but loves cocoa -and is on a diet? Make them happy by preparing a cup of sugar-free hot cocoa and mixing with two tablespoons of the new Torani sugar-free chocolate macademia nut syrup! It’s an incredibly rich-tasting, full-bodied combination that will make them want to double-check the label to make sure it’s “really” sugar-free (it is!).
