I was looking for something to replace my McDonald's Sugar Free Vanilla Iced Coffee (only 120 calories, but 12 grams of fat!) when I saw Splenda flavors for coffee. I got the french vanilla, brewed up some coffee at work and mixed them over ice. Now I have a delicious iced coffee for 0 calories!

If you like flavored coffee try this. Buy regular coffee & then flavored coffees as well. What I do though is when I make the coffee I use one scoop of the flavored coffee and the rest regular. You get the flavor and save money. Another option is add cinnamon to your coffee grounds.
Swapping coffee shop iced coffee for homemade with almond milk
I loved the iced coffee that I would buy from the "golden arches" but it isn't exactly the healthiest of drinks. I began to cold brew my own coffee (you can find info on the web on how to do it). I usually will buy some richly flavored coffee so I don't need any of the flavored syrups and I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk for the creaminess. It only has 40 calories for one cup and has heart healthy fat which gives it a creamy flavor.
All the flavor of high-cal coffee drinks, none of the guilt!
Add a 0-cal flavor to your coffee with some almond milk instead of hitting the coffee shop! I like Torani's 0 calorie Hazelnut or Chocolate flavoring syrup with 1/2 cup (20 cal) almond milk in a strong brewed-at-home cup of coffee. Save 4 bucks, and plenty of cals!
