Healthy-ish Iced Cappuccino | easy recipe


hey guys :) how are you doing?

so a couple weeks ago, at school, i was in home ec., and we were making iced cappuccino.  honestly, it wasn't that bad, especially for me, since i love all things sweet. well, not anything, but yeah.  so we just went ahead and dumped coffee, milk, and hot cocoa mix into our mugs, and i don't know.  i didn't even know that i was this worried about eating healthy, cuz when we opened up the hot cocoa mixes i was just like so sad that we would be putting something so unhealthy into our drinks.

wow, autumn.

i mean, yeah.  but, i guess that's kind of good? i mean, me being worried about how unhealthy this cappuccino is before drinking it is  kind of, um, well, fantastic.  no kidding guys.
but anyways, so after that monumental class i hurried on home and ransacked the kitchen, trying to figure out where anything is, and then threw together my idea of a "healthy" iced cappuccino.  tee hee.
anyways, so i really wouldn't call this recipe like super duper healthy or anything...i mean, c'mon, it's just a cappuccino recipe, and a cappuccino is a drink that's more dessert-y, than, like, water. okay, so hopefully you got that, but if not, that's okay.

what i was trying to say in a nutshell -  i just love making food and this is a recipe for something that the race of humans have dubbed as "iced cappuccino" so maybe you should make it and eat yummy food, kk?




I N G R E D I  E N T S
1/2 c. strong coffee
1/2 c. milk 
1 Envelope of Hot Cocoa Mix OR  3 Tbsp of Mix. (I couldn't find any at the store that were healthy, so I just mixed 1/2 c. cocoa powder w/ 1/2 c. xylitol {a natural sweetening substitute...you can use any other sugar you wish} and it tasted just great.)
Ice Cubes
Whipped Cream (optional)

D I R E C T I O N S
Put the Hot Cocoa mix in your mug.  Add the coffee to it, and then mix.  Add the milk, and then fill the mug the rest of the way up with ice cubes.  Top with whipped cream if you want.


Firstly, you're going to want to make your strong coffee if you don't have any on hand. 




Then, you're going to take your hot cocoa and if you're using an envelope just dump it all into your mug, or if you're using a homemade mix like I did, just measure out 3 Tbsp. and put that in your mug.




Then you're going to mix in the coffee with your hot cocoa mix and stir that till mixed.



Immediately add your milk and there's the basic cappuccino for you :) But we're not just gonna leave it at this, i mean, really. 



Now to make this thing chill and cool (no pun intended) we're going to add ice cubes till the drink reaches the top of the mug.  This really makes the drink "iced". 


And then the BEST part.  whipped cream.  ♥ Go crazy, it's up to you ^-^







so, did you guys like this post? i've only done one other "recipe" post on this blog before, and that was my meadow tea recipe.  but honestly, you guys know my obsession with healthy baking, and i love making stuff.  like a lot.  so, do you guys even like posts like these? where i show food? cuz i had another idea in mind for later on, like something for a healthy frappuccino...but I want to know if you guys even like these types of posts before just going on a streak of them...so yeah.  what do you think?

okay, so how's school going for you all? i think i'm getting used to the routine of it, but honestly, SO. MUCH. WORK.  ughhh... =) anyways, so.... i think that's it.  have an amazing day because today's a great reason to be happy, right?

  1. I love this post!! I'll have to try this sometime:) Although being the health-food-rebel that I am, I'll probably just use sugar xD Actually, I'd love to make it healthier, but for some reason sugar substitutes give me a stomach ache sometimes? Idk. But I love this recipe! Definitely share some more of these:)
    School...ugh. I'm getting used to the routine too, but gosh, I miss free time!
    Thanks for sharing this, Autumn! :)

  2. OOH.
    Okay, I'm totally trying this. Maybe Monday before school because I'll be terribly tired? I dunno, but I want to do this really badly. xD Coffee isn't my *favorite*, so hopefully the sweets in there will help it be a little bit more bearable. :p

    School for me is going fine. I'm not generally hot on all that "social scene" stuff (and the HW like who likes that), but I love having more time to chill with my friends and having math class. bc math is cool.

  13. I need to do this! I just started drinking coffee and have yet to go the ice route because I never think in advance and don't have time to let the coffee chill before I need to drink it, but I should try this! When you're making your own cocoa mix and use a sugar substitute like stevia, the coffee is actually healthy (unless you add a lot of whipped cream!) Much healthier than starbucks!
