Sabroso Saturday: Mint Mocha Frappuccino Light Recipe

by Migdalia Rivera

It’s Sabroso Saturday (Translation: Tasty Saturday)! The day when we share recipes that have helped us stretch our budget, our imagination and our taste buds, without sacrificing our health!

********************

I love Frappuccinos! However, I haven’t had the opportunity to enjoy them as much as I like because of the Starbucks cost factor. Thankfully, I was able to obtain the below Mint Mocha Frappuccino Light recipe from elige leche, the Spanish version of the got milk? website.

After savoring this treat, I plan on making it for my girlfriends. Its the perfect drink for the holidays and an extra large serving has fewer calories than the Starbucks version (approximately 20 calories less for a 16 oz. cup)! So not only do you save money making the below recipe at home, but you also save your thighs! Woot!
