Mix It Up: Iced Coffee Hack... With less calories than a high street latte, find out how you can mix up a Cambridge Weight Plan Shakes into a refreshing Iced Coffee. Shake It Up by Cambridge Weight Plan
Is there anything better on a lush sunny day than a giant mug of ice cold coffee? If you’re sticking to Plan you might be missing the iced lattes you can get from high street coffee shops, but these are sugar laden and calorific! Don’t fear, we have an awesome Cambridge Weight Plan hack for you so you can enjoy an iced coffee treat that tastes so good that you’ll feel a bit naughty, without even having to cheat!

CWP Iced Latte

  1. Take a large glass (we don’t know about you, but we adore Mason jar mugs, all drinks just feel so much cooler in one of these)
  2. Fill glass with ice
  3. Make up a shake from your daily allowance, flavours that taste amazing with this hack are: Vanilla, Cappuccino, Toffee and Walnut, Butterscotch and Chocolate, a little extra water will make the drink last longer and give you a consistency closer to a latte
  4. Make up a ‘shot’ of coffee in a mug, 1 tsp of coffee, plus good splash of water, stir until totally dissolved
  5. Pour shake over ice
  6. Pour coffee over shake (admire how pretty and swirly it looks!)
  7. Enjoy!

Frappe
As above, but instead of adding straight to mug, put all ingredients (ice, coffee, shake) in to a blender and whizz up to create a gorgeously thick and creamy Frappuccino

Luxe Version
For an even creamier and more luxurious iced coffee treat use a little of your daily milk allowance (if you’re not sure how much you’re allowed check with your Consultant). YUM!

The best bit is with the average iced coffee on the high street coming in at around 300 calories, you’re saving calories, getting a treat and still staying on Plan! Genius!

Let us know if you’ve tried this out and what you thought. Do you have any other genius product hacks? We’d love to hear them!

Your local Costa or equivalent are often incredibly lovely, and will make up your shakes for you in their super-duper whizzy blenders. I had a cappuccino granita (hehe!) today with a shot of coffee in it, and it was absolutely gorgeous.

Does anyone else find that The new cappuccino shakes taste slightly caramel and less coffee flavoured, have taken to putting a nespresso shot in to give it that boost. It was my favourite go to lunch everyday

Sorry for the silly question but when you say make up a shot of coffee in a mug do you mean with warm water or cold?? I’m gonna try this for my lunch today 🙂
