Get your coffee on and enjoy yourself.
If they weren’t super expensive (and filled with who-knows-what as far as the ingredients go), We would be at Starbucks getting a “frappucino” pretty much every day. To avoid that scenario, we came up with a simple, yet delicious, homemade version.
The secret ingredient in this drink is organic, freeze-dried, instant coffee. It’s tasty and convenient! And it’s perfect for making blended iced coffee drinks.
Sure, you can make a blended iced coffee drink with chilled brewed coffee but we don’t make ours that way, so we can’t help you out as far as a recipe goes.
You need a good blender for this recipe. Not necessarily an expensive one, but one that won’t crap out on you when you attempt to blend lots of ice in it.
By the way, you know what makes this iced coffee frappe even more delicious? You guessed it: ICE CREAM! Add a scoop or two of vanilla (or chocolate or coffee) ice cream for extra deliciousness. If you do so, you may want to cut back on the maple syrup (or whatever sweetener you decide to use) so it’s not too sweet
Recipe for Iced Coffee Frappe
*1 1/2 cups milk, preferably whole and organic (I use raw milk)
*2 cups of ice cubes
*3 tablespoons pure maple syrup (or organic, unrefined granulated sugar), or to taste
*2 teaspoons organic freeze-dried instant regular or decaf coffee
*1-2 scoops of vanilla (or chocolate or coffee) ice cream (optional-for more of a milkshake-like drink); I'd cut back a little on the sweetener if you do add ice cream
1. Add all ingredients to your blender and blend on "high" until everything is thoroughly mixed (and ice is completely crushed).
