Iced Espresso Latte

      .
    For women, coffee may mean a lower risk of stroke. In 2009, a study of 83,700 nurses enrolled in the long-term Nurses' Health Study showed a 20% lower risk of stroke in those who reported drinking two or more cups of coffee daily, compared to women who drank less coffee or none at all. That pattern held regardless of whether the women had high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, and type 2 diabetes. Click here for more information on health benefits of Coffee.
    2 cups brewed decaffeinated espresso coffee, cooled 2 tablespoons golden brown sugar 1 1/2 cups fat-free milk 2 tablespoons sugar-free almond syrup Ice cubes 1 cup fat-free whipped topping 1 teaspoon ground espresso beans

In a pitcher, combine the espresso, brown sugar, milk and syrup. Stir to mix evenly. Refrigerate until cold.

Fill 4 glasses with ice cubes. Pour coffee over ice. Add 1/4 cup whipped topping to each drink and sprinkle with  chopped chocolate.
