Hello from Virginia! We stopped in Lexington, Virginia tonight to get some rest, and tomorrow we will make the rest of the journey and arrive in Philadelphia! Don’t forget that you can follow me on my journey via Twitter! Just go to the Twitter section on the right hand side of the screen. I’ll be posting updates, tidbits, previews, and pictures throughout the journey!
I made a special snack for the journey… Chocolate-Peanut Butter Dough Balls!
They came out perfect! Nice and soft on the inside. YUM!
And to drink? A refreshing iced coffee made with Godiva Coffee. YUMMMMMMM… (I received a free sample of Godiva coffee through FoodBuzz’s Tastemaker program.) I have been enjoying the Godiva Coffee in the mornings—it’s so rich and flavorful that you really don’t even need creamer with it at all! But I’ve really been wanting to make an iced coffee drink with it. It’s been so hot that I thought an iced coffee would be a great afternoon treat!
I don’t like my coffee drinks overly sweet, so this is sweet, but not TOO sweet.
“Chocolate and Vanilla Godiva Iced Coffee”
- 1 cup cooled Godiva Chocolate Truffle Coffee (I made this coffee in the morning, and by afternoon, it was nice and cool)
- 1/8 Cup Coffee Mate Natural Bliss Vanilla Creamer (I am loving this creamer—all natural ingredients!!!)
- a quick squeeze of chocolate syrup (I used one that was “light.”) You can use more than a “quick squeeze”, though… I won’t tell!
- Lots of ice
Prep: Blend all ingredients together and serve immediately! Enjoy on a hot day!
I plan to make this iced coffee again soon! I am thinking it would make a great treat in the mornings when school starts and it’s still 100 degrees. If I had a blender in my classroom, I think I would be whipping these up before my outside recess duty shift! Now THAT’S an idea I need to think more about…
I’ll be back tomorrow with a post about our trip to the “City of Brotherly Love.” Stay tuned!
