I should be weaning myself off of caffeine.

Except that every time I think about skipping my two cups of coffee during this Sunday’s fast, I want more. And with yesterday’s heat, that translated into a mocha slushy. Think Starbucks meets 7/11. Minus the fake flavors, $4 and 800 calories.

Why start my headache now, right?

1 large glass of crushed ice
1 packet of Starbucks Via or 1/2 cup extra strong coffee (i.e. 3T coffee grinds in a French Press with 1/2 cup water)
1t cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
1t stevia extract
2-3 drops almond extract (this is optional, but wow, it’s good!)

Blend together in a blender until the ice is crushed to a slushy consistency.
