Iced Vanilla Coffee

Oopsie - I just found this one in my drafts.  I should have shared it while the weather was very hot.  It's a great thirst quencher and I will continue to drink it even when the temps are dropping. 

I am always wild about Nancy's recipes at Skinny Kitchen.
She says this is a 'remake' of Coffee Beans Vanilla Ice Blended Drink.
(I'm not familiar with that brand, but know they must be an awesome company).

Please visit Nancy's site (at link above) if you'd like WW Points.  I tweaked this recipe a tad. 
I'm SUCH a fan of coffee drinks - hot or cold, but have been enjoying plenty of iced coffee this summer.  Have to confess I'm getting addicted to this one too!


ICED VANILLA COFFEE

1/3 c. double strength regular or decaf coffee, chilled
1/2 c. nonfat (or 1%) milk
1 Tb. instant (sugar free) vanilla pudding, dry
(or 2 - 3 Tb. simple vanilla creamer)
1 pkt. Truvia or liquid stevia to taste
(if using the creamer, it will already be sweet) 
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 c. crushed ice 

Combine all ingredients in blender, blending on high until drink is smooth. 
Pour into a glass - top with light whipped cream if desired.
Yield: 1 large drink

Enjoy every awesome cooling sip!
