Written by Diet Bites

For Extreme Coffee Lovers

Love coffee but the heat's nipping that 'Mid-day Caffeine Fix' in the bud?

Well, when the sun's out and it's just too hot to sweat, try this delicious recipe for chilled Fabulous Frappuccino. You don't even have to leave a tip at Diet Bites.

Ingredients for this Frappuccino Diet Recipe

1 cup of very strong brewed coffee such as French or Dark Italian Roast, chilled.

2-4 Tablespoons of low fat Powdered Creamer OR your favorite liquid low fat refrigerated creamers.

1 Teaspoon of Instant Chocolate Mix

Dash of Ground Cinnamon

Non-fat Whipped Topping; use the 15 calories per 2 Tablespoons variety or you can opt for regular low fat whipped cream which contains the same amount of calories.

1/2 Cup of Crushed Ice OR Ice Cubes plus Splenda OR Equal - or your favorite variety of no calorie sweetener.

How to Prepare Frappuccino

Blend all of the recipe ingredients listed above, omitting the reduced fat topping. You can use any blending method that you prefer from a stick blender to a food processor to a regular blender.

Be certain that the coffee is chilled when you start the recipe. What a great way to make excellent use of leftover coffee.

Next, add the whipped topping and drizzle with just a very tiny amount of Smucker's caramel topping OR chocolate syrup. This adds beauty and flavor to the Frappuccino recipe.

Be sure to use only a small bit as these are loaded in calories - even though they contain zero fat.

You can also search for reduced sugary chocolate syrup at your local market to save even more calories.

Enjoy your Diet Frappuccino beside your blown-up vinyl swimming pool.

Health Facts Related to Caffeine Dietary Supplement

It might be a bit surprising to know that about one-half of Americans use some form of dietary supplements on a regular basis.

Caffeine is commonly a chief ingredient in most dietary weight loss supplements. It may or may not be listed as an ingredient on the product label.

What is caffeine?

It's a natural alkaloid occurring in multiple species of plants and plant derivatives (botanicals), although most individuals commonly associate caffeine content with tea and coffee.

A short list which examples these botanicals include: guarana, yerba mate, kola nut and green tea extract. If you've ever taken dietary supplements and read the product label, you may be familiar with the names of these botanicals as these will be printed on the label.

However, where caffeine content is concerned, the United States of America has no requirements in reporting it on the labeling, nor the amount of caffeine contained in a product unless caffeine is in its pure form. Then reporting on the label is a requirement.

A good many of dietary supplements who do not list caffeine on the product labeling may contain amounts equaling two or more cups of regular coffee.

Side Effects of Caffeine

Excess caffeine in the daily diet can trigger unpleasant side effects including: jitters, nervousness, panic attacks, dehydration, sleeplessness, fidgeting, headache - at times intense, and it may elevate blood pressure to unhealthy levels in some individuals.
