Who loves Starbucks?
Yeah, me too… but my bank and my conscience won’t let me go there often…. so I make my own!
You want to make you own too, right? Of course you do!
It’s so easy, you’re probably going to be mad at me for not telling you sooner!
All you do is make some espresso or coffee and stick in the fridge (or freezer if you want to drink it sooner).
When it has cooled you may make your drink.
Fill you cup or blender 3/4 of the way with ice.
Then, put about a cup or so of coffee in with the ice.
Add as much milk as you would like (I just add a ‘splash’ because I like my drink to actually taste like coffee. Add more milk if you are a wimplike your drinks a little less strong).
Then, add about 3-6 teaspoons of sugar depending on your personal taste. (I never claimed this was a healthy recipe)
Blend it up in your blender. I use the magic bullet. It’s my best friend…. especially during the summer.
And viola! You have a coffee frappuccino at home! Stick a straw in it and you are ready to go!
To sum up…
Espresso or coffee
Milk (I use almond or coconut. Cow’s milk is fine or whatever is your milk of choice)
Blend together and enjoy.
Now for the fun part…
Do you like Java Chip Frappuccino’s? Mocha Frapp? Peppermint Mocha?
Use these variations:
- Chocolate Chips – I highly recommend you grind up the chocolate chips by themselves before you add the ice. Otherwise, the chips don’t chop up small enough to fit through the straw.
- Any flavoring you might like… vanilla, hazelnut, peppermint, caramel, coconut, etc.
- Chocolate syrup or cocoa powder
You can really make some fancy coffee drinks and you don’t have to break the bank or drink something with questionable ingredients!
