Caramel Snickerdoodle Mocktail

The holidays are my favorite time of the year. While this year may be different, there is still so much joy and happiness to be had.

In fact, I am looking forward to an incredibly festive year filled with merriment, delicious food, and amazing mocktails.

Another thing that hasn’t changed is that I am always trying to keep a balance.

So, while I’m baking cookies, I’m going to have a delicious and protein-packed mocktail in hand.

If this sounds like you too, and you are looking to keep a little balance during the holidays and love snickerdoodles, read on!

Last year, we made Hazelnut Protein Iced Mochas and they were a hit!

This year, I think I am going to knock it out of the park with this Caramel Snickerdoodle Mocktail.

  • 1/2 cup of ice
  • 1 bottle of prepared caramel protein shake (160 calories, 1 gram of sugar, and 30 grams of protein)

  • 2 plates
  • 3 tablespoons of Torani Sugar-Free Brown Sugar Cinnamon Syrup, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, divided

Can I Use Something Other Than Prepared Protein Shake?

If you can’t find a caramel-flavored protein shake that is ready to drink, you can opt for using 1 cup of milk or vanilla almond milk.

Just add 1 tablespoon of Torani Sugar-Free Caramel Syrup and 2 scoops of vanilla protein powder if you still want a protein boost.

Rim the Glass

On a plate, using a spoon, mix the 1/4 cup of the turbinado sugar/stevia blend with a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon.

On a separate plate, place 1 tablespoon of the Torani Sugar-Free Brown Sugar Cinnamon Syrup and moisten the rim of the glass with it.

TIP:

Since you are using a shaker for this drink, you can rim your glasses ahead of time and chill them in the fridge without ruining your precise handiwork.

Tilt the glass at a 45-degree angle and slowly and evenly rotate the glass until the rim is coated.

Immediately dip it evenly into the turbinado mix and rotate until it’s completely and evenly coated.

Set aside or place in your fridge to chill.

Mix and Shake

In a shaker cup, add 1/2 cup of ice, the bottle of caramel protein shake (or the alternative), the remaining 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon, 2 tablespoons of the Torani Sugar-Free Brown Sugar and Cinnamon syrup.

TIP:

I baked my favorite snickerdoodle recipe, and before they cooled, I cut the cookies into quarters. Then cut a small split on the center of each wedge to prepare for the glass. You don’t need to add a wedge, of course, but you can always sip on your mocktail as you munch on Christmas cookies. Delish, either way!

Secure the lid and shake well for 10-12 seconds.

Pour the mixture into your chilled glass, add in a tall cinnamon stick, top with whipped cream.

If using, finish with a piece of a snickerdoodle wedge.

You can use the cinnamon stick as a straw, my kids had fun with those but, you can skip that and just use a paper straw or straw of your choice.
