Iced Vanilla Coffee Milk

Summer is the time for frosty cool drinks and desserts. Indulge with coffee year round with this low-cal, low-fat vanilla-flavored treat.

Iced Vanilla Coffee Milk
Serves: 4 (1-cup)

Whipped topping turns this coffee milk into a satisfying, rich-tasting summer drink or dessert. The cinnamon stick stirrer adds a light spiced flavor. You can also sprinkle some ground cinnamon on top, if you like.

3 cups strongly brewed decaffeinated coffee, chilled
1 cup fat-free or 1% milk
2 teaspoons granular sugar substitute
1/2 teaspoon Watkins Vanilla Extract
Ice cubes
1/2 cup fat-free or light whipped topping
Pinch ground Watkins Cinnamon for garnish (optional)
4 cinnamon sticks for garnish (optional)

In a pitcher, combine coffee, milk, vanilla, and sugar substitute, and vanilla; stir well. Fill 4 (10-ounce) glasses with ice. Pour coffee mixture over ice. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the whipped topping into each glass.

Stir gently so that some topping mixes with coffee and some remains at the top of the glass. Garnish each with a pinch of ground cinnamon and a cinnamon stick, if using.
