Iced Vanilla Latte

1 1/2 Cups strong coffee

2 cups vanilla soymilk

2 tsps caramel or chocolate fat free topping

Ice cubes to taste

Sugar, if desired.

Brew coffee. Stir the soymilk into the coffee. Drizzle the insides of two large glasses with topping. Fill glasses with ice cubes as desired. Pour coffee mixture over ice. Sweeten to taste. (which for me would, of course, be NOT)
