In partnership with #SkinnyCow
I am sharing my own thoughts and experiences.
The other night I had some friends over. It was a “work night” and we were feeling like we had come down with a “case of the Mondays.” Work schedules, weather, and transitional periods in general, had us all feeling a little crazy! Enter a caffeinated beverage.
Thanks to Skinny Cow, my friends and I were able to perk up, hang out, and taste test their new line of Iced Coffee.
As Daniel sat at the piano practicing a few pieces, we sat around snacking and catching up. Work, fitness, travel, animals.
The elusive Rory cat, that is usually in hiding when anybody “new” steps through the door, was actually making appearances. It seems she is getting curiouser and curiouser. Maria and Caitlin were even able to pet her – with the help of a few treats.
Once we moved into the Skinny Cow
tasting, a couple of my friends did a blind taste test to try and figure out which flavor was their favorite: Vanilla, Mocha, or Cappuccino.
I’m a huge fan of coffee in general, so while I’d drink any of these varieties, I’d probably reach for the Cappuccino flavor first.
After it was decided which flavors were our favorites, I decided to use the beverages to make more of an evening type drink. We had milk shakes!! They were a big hit! Especially because the drink itself is already pretty thick and creamy. We debated adding a little vodka into the mix, but decided against it for now.
The best part of it was the basically guilt-free nature of our whole night. We used a Skinny Cow base along with reduced fat ice cream and milk. I think I’ll add some Kahlua in next time for more of a White Russian feel.
I shouldn’t need an excuse to invite my friends over, but sometimes you truly need one. Life becomes overwhelming and you just need to hit pause.
Thank you, Skinny Cow, for providing me with a new coffee drink to enjoy whether I’m out the door that morning, or in for the night. And on this stressful Monday night, providing me with a pause button.

p.s. Every time I said “cappuccino” that night I wanted to quote Tom Hanks teasing about Starbucks menus and all of the choices in You’ve Got Mail. [not the best audio, but here’s a video link]
