    best way to work out the calories is weigh the coffee mate and see how many cals in that

    then weigh the sugar !etc

    coffee doesnt count cos its almost calorie free

    you could use splenda or half spoon sugar

    and
    coffee mate lite

    Splenda have a big advertising campaign on TV at present ... it's sucrose basically and has been going in America for years. !It only has a fraction of the calories of sugar, looks like sugar and can be used in drinks/cooking, etc. !I've been using it for a while, it's gotta be better for you than Aspartame and other "substitutes".

    It's 4 something for a big jar.

    Re: home made instant cappychino
    its only 2.29 here! lol

    your right Mimi, thanks for that, no aspartame which is horrible stuff, and no orrible after taste either
    some people say they get one but I dont.

    To make the cappuccino go all frothy, do not put the coffeemate in the mix but add hot milk and use a mixer tool (the one to whip cream) to whip it.

    The hot milk with the mixture should make a nice froth on top that you can sprinkle with powdered cocoa!
