Iced mocha smoothie

Iced mocha smoothie

I hadn’t had an iced coffee in years. Not long ago, I stole a sip from a friend of mine and couldn’t get over how cloyingly sweet it was. Way sweeter than I remembered it being back when I used to drink them as a teen. But I guess that isn’t surprising, given the  amount of sugar the average iced frap packs. In today’s video, you’ll see just how much sugar that is, along with a recipe for an iced mocha smoothie, as a healthier, more balanced and naturally sweeter alternative to your commercially chilled brew.
