Homemade Frappuccino

I just made a homemade Frappuccino and it wasn’t terrible! (Great intro, huh? 😉 )

Here’s what you need:
  • Frozen coffee (i.e., put coffee in an ice cube tray and freeze, so you’re left with coffee ice cubes)
  • Milk of choice (I used almond milk)
  • Sweetener of choice (I used coffee creamer, but I kinda wish I had used honey or maple syrup because I didn’t like the creamer taste so much)
  • I’m guessing you could try adding cocoa powder for a “mocha” taste, or peppermint flavor/extract for a minty taste, or vanilla extract for a vanilla taste, or coconut flakes for a coconut taste…you get the idea.
I eyeballed amounts of each. I used like 12 coffee ice cubes, about 2 cups of almond milk, and maybe a few teaspoons of creamer.  I should probably measure stuff more… 😉
Put all in a blender and DEMOLISH.
Makes about 3-ish cups.
Less sugary (and less expensive) than the store-bought version.
The recipe will need to be customized according to your tastes, but it’s just a base to get us thinking about ways to create healthier versions of treats!  Let me know if you try it out and how it tastes!
