Skinny Remake of Coffee Bean’s Fabulous Ice Blended Vanilla Drink

Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf was the first company back in the 1980s to create these amazing ice-blended drinks. Now they’re all the rage…Sweet, rich-tasting, icy cold, and very refreshing! It’s a sophisticated grown-up milkshake, where you can get a jolt of caffeine in every cup. I especially love their vanilla one.  My skinny remake has 97 calories and 2 grams of fat. Have fun skinny sipping!!!

Food Facts

In the 1980s the world’s first cold blended coffee drink (as opposed to shaken, stirred, or served over ice) was created at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®.  It was created by some of its employees. Company founder, Herbert B. Hyman, perfected it. It was an instant hit and the rest, as they say, is history!
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® has over 250 company-owned stores and numerous franchises.

Prep Tips
Make double-strength regular or decaf coffee by brewing with twice the coffee required by your coffee maker.  Use 2 tablespoons of ground coffee per each cup of coffee.  Chill before using.  Make extra, if desired, to keep on hand in the refrigerator.
