A frozen coffee drink really hits the refreshing spot on an uber warm day. They can be found at virtually any coffee house – but at a stiff price and with ingredients you may not want to put into your precious body. Most shops use chocolate syrup to make frappes, which commonly contains HFCS (high fructose corn syrup), artificial sweeteners, and who knows what else.
Let all of the wonder and worry go and make your own, choosing the type and quality of ingredients yourself! Using organic, shade-grown coffee beans, non-dairy milk and organic cane sugar or stevia are just some of the more health and environmentally friendly options you can incorporate into your coffee treat. Plus, you can feel terrific about having made it yourself and for less cost than buying one at a big box store.
Here’s the winning recipe to make this rich and cooling delight:
2 cups double strength brewed coffee, frozen into cubes
2 1/4 cups chocolate milk. I like Silk’s Dark Chocolate Almond
Put all in high-speed blender and whiz up until smooth. Top with a bit of whip to jazz it up, if that’s your calling.
Makes 2 16 oz. frappes.
Tweak the recipe to suit your tastes, then sit back and enjoy this cool one. You’ll be happy to know what’s in it and where it came from – your own kitchen and creativity.
