I love recipes that essentially save me money. I really like those fancy coffee drinks that cost a fortune. Most times I don't treat myself because we're trying to really cut down on all extras to put away money to pay bills and buy stuff for Baby 2. But when I was visiting, I lucked into finding THIS:

Cool 'n Creamy Coffee Freeze

Prep Time: 5 min
Makes: 4 servings, about 3/4 cup each

What You Need
1 cup milk
ice cubes
1 cup COOL WHIP Whipped Topping (Do not thaw.)
1 pkg. (4-serving size) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
1 Tbsp. MAXWELL HOUSE Instant Coffee

POUR milk into 1-qt. glass measuring cup. Add enough ice to measure 3 cups. Pour into blender. Add frozen whipped topping, dry pudding mix and coffee granules. BLEND on high speed until smooth. POUR into four glasses. Serve immediately.

  • Try our Healthy Living version of Cool ‘n Creamy Coffee Freeze. Made with fat-free milk, COOL WHIP LITE Whipped Topping and JELL-O Fat Free Sugar Free Instant Pudding, it saves 80 calories and 2 grams of fat per serving.
  • Mocha Freeze: Prepare as directed, using JELL-O Chocolate Instant Pudding.

Now, I can afford to have my fancy schmancy coffee drink and feel like I'm really not spending all that much money. Woohoo! Gotta love that!
