Better Than Starbucks Frappé

May 4, 2012

Oh boy. This recipe I’m about to share with you is dangerously delicious. It does have sugar (but not that much) and milk (but you could use skim), and it is sooo tasty! This drink is delightfully creamy, sweet, and has just the right “kick” from the coffee. And yes, it does beat Starbucks (in my opinion, at least). As long as you make it a once-in-a-while-treat, this is a great way to cool off during a hot summer day.

In your blender, measure out 1 cup of milk, 1 rounded teaspoon instant coffee granules, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 Tablespoon white chocolate chips, 2 Tablespoons sugar (you can add more or less sugar, depending on your sweet tooth), and 1/2 cup ice cubes. Blend on high for 30 seconds, or until smooth. Pour into 2 tall glasses, and enjoy! Optional: if you really want a sugar buzz, you can top with it whipped cream, but that’s up to you!

Note: Make sure to enjoy this before it gets too late in the day – otherwise you’ll be jumping off the walls at midnight from the sugar or the coffee (or both)! :)

    Better than Starbucks!?! Impossible! No, I take that back…any coffee drink made by you is bound to be better than a mere coffee shop. :) This looks delicious, Brookie! Thanks for sharing.

    To God be the Glory,

    Mmm, this sounds tasty! :) I do believe I’ll try it out, and if I don’t utterly ruin it (as I am apt to do whenever any recipe involving coffee granules comes my way!), I might use it as a wake-up Mother’s Day present for (who else?) my mother! :) Thanks for sharing this recipe! Have a great weekend! :)
