60-calorie Mocha Frappe - Slimming down a coffee house favorite
Many women believe that eating to achieve a lean physique will be miserable and boring. The assumption is that food will always taste bad and will not be enjoyable to eat. This is not true. You can turn ordinary, bland “diet” foods into tasty treats that will be a joy to eat—maybe even more than the sugary desserts we all crave!

60-calorie Mocha Frappe - Slimming down a coffee house favoriteI have been experimenting with Walden Farms dressings, condiments, syrups and spreads for a few years. These products are both sugar and calorie free. Sounds too good to be true, right? Wrong! It’s the real deal! My favorite product from Walden Farms is the chocolate syrup, which tastes just like the real thing. I use the chocolate syrup with or on foods such as pancakes, Greek yogurt, oatmeal, protein shakes, rice cakes and even peanut butter! The possibilities are endless!

Do you crave Starbucks cold, creamy, calorie-laden concoctions? Walden Farms chocolate syrup combined with a few other simple ingredients creates a healthier Mocha Frappe that you can enjoy without any guilt!
