This Starbucks creation, which cuts the fat, carbs and calories of the original Frappuccino is a top-seller with coffee-house regulars. Starbucks says their light version is 54% fewer calories per serving than the original Frappuccino. Sounds pretty good so we’ve tackled a skinny recipe to enjoy at home. Our favorite is their caramel one. We’ve cut the fat and calories by using 1% milk, mostly Splenda and just a little sugar. Adding just a small amount of sugar really adds to the taste. You really don’t need much. The skinny on ours is 132 calories and 1.8g fat. This includes a little light whipped cream and caramel drizzle on top. A Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino Light has 152 calories and 1.3 grams of fat not including whipped cream or caramel drizzle. Sit down, relax and enjoy this rich tasting, chilly treat. Have fun skinny sipping!

    Prep Tip
    Make double-strength coffee by brewing with twice the coffee required by your coffee maker. Use 2 tablespoons of ground coffee per each cup of coffee. Chill before using. Make extra, if desired, to keep on hand in the refrigerator.

    We used fresh brewed hazelnut flavored coffee for this recipe but any regular or decaf coffee will work.

    Substitution Tip
    To cut the calories and fat further use nonfat milk instead of 1% and all Splenda, no sugar. These facts still include the topping- 109 calories, 1g fat, 3g protein, 22g carbs, 133mg sodium 0g fiber, 1g sugar
