Looking for an easy and inexpensive alternative to the coffee shop? Stay on plan with this THM caramel iced coffee fuel pull.
Since having kids, coffee is life. A cup (or 3) in the morning is what gets me moving and focused in the morning.
I love sitting on the porch with a nice hot cup of coffee and watching the sunrise. Or as most real mornings happen, slurping down a monster cup of coffee while pouring the kids bowls of cereal, packing lunches and trying to get everyone ready for the day.
And while I love that cup of joe in the morning, I can’t drink hot coffee in the afternoons. Don’t know why, it just doesn’t appeal to me like it does in the morning.
So what to do when that afternoon slump hits? A THM caramel iced coffee is a fuel pull that can be paired with an S or E Snack.

On Plan Trim Healthy Mama Iced Coffee Drink
Now, how can you make that black cold brew delicious and on plan?
You just need a couple of ingredients!
What You Need:
- Cold Brew Coffee – Update: This is the cold brew I have started using. I LOVE it. Not too weak and not bitter.
- Heavy Cream
- Almond Milk
- Sweet Drops – Caramel
Wait, Heavy Cream In A FP?
By balancing a splash of heavy cream with almond milk, you lighten this iced coffee up quite a bit while still keeping it rich and creamy.
If you use only the 1/2 a tablespoon of heavy cream, you will be at about 2.5 grams of fat which keeps it in a FP.
So this will fit in a FP or an E if you keep all other fats really low. It will also go great with an S meal.
You could also drink this coffee if following a low carb or Keto lifestyle.
Making the Caramel Iced Coffee
I used a Dunkin Donuts cold brew that you need to steep overnight in a pitcher. I like the taste and cost of this product but you do have to plan ahead for your coffee.
In a tall glass, add 8 oz cold brew coffee.
Next, add in 1/2 tablespoon heavy cream & 1/2 tablespoon of Almond milk.
Now, time to sweeten it up.
Add 5 drops of the caramel Sweet Drops.
Stir the coffee, cream and stevia sweetener together.
Add 1 cup of ice and serve your THM caramel iced coffee with your FP, S or E meal or snack.
