Like every stereotypical bleach blonde white girl... I've developed a rather pricey addiction to Starbucks. Specifically Starbucks caramel frappuccinos. Also... I work 12 hour shifts with sometimes only 8 hours between them so the sugar and caffeine is helpful. But they're 300 calories of sugary goodness and I don't have room for that many calories of fluff in my life lol
So Lent is coming up next month and I figure that's as good of time as any to kick my habit. Plus, you know, it gives me a few weeks to prepare myself and look for a replacement haha
So... shoot. Tell me something that will be healthier, less expensive, and also make me not crash and burn either on my way to work or at work :p

Caffeine pills if you looking for a boost like the drink gave you. Can make your own Fraps with ice, coffee, cream, maybe Tortoli I think it's called flavorings for coffee which come sugar free. Otherwise I make this frap type thing with protein powder.0

I was just laying in bed thing of this when I woke up. I had kicked my addition years ago but had one the other day. It was heavenly. I'm not drinking 500 calories though. So back to my old fix.
An unsweetened iced coffe is just 5 calories add a fat free creamer, sugar free caramel syrup, and then add your own artificial sweetener to make it sweet. That's about as close and low calorie as you will get out. You loose the texture but the taste will give you a fix.
Make your own at home.
Zero calorie flavored syrups (not a must)
Healthiest creamer you can find. Walden Farms Original Creamer will be the absolute healthiest. 0 cal 0 fat. Might find one you like better with few cal
Cool whip free 15 calorie (don't even need this but it might make it creamer)
Strong coffe/ or concentrated iced coffe in a squeeze bottle. think they even have caramel flavor
Just blend all that together with ice in a blender. I don't even think you will get to 100 calories. If you don't use the coolwhip it will be almost calorie free, and you still get a very nice texture.
