A good day for an iced coffee frappe' (blended) kind of like a yummy coffee slushee!


If you follow me on Instagram, you will recognize these photos as I'm just using the same ones to post here quickly.

Yesterday was sunny and warm and gorgeous - a far cry from the last week and a nice break as we head into more 'yuck' weather this week.  I suddenly had a craving for an iced coffee.  I don't really like cold coffee simply over ice, but I love 'blended' cold drinks - more slushy.  

I have a Mr. Coffee Frappe' machine (they no longer make them) but they do make iced coffee machines which you could blend yourself in your blender.  

This is also NOT a sponsored post (even though you can see the product I used in the photos).  They most certainly did not supply me with product for this - we've bought it all ourselves and actually, the set this one comes from was gifted to my husband for his birthday.

I use ALL kinds and flavors of coffee when I make iced coffee!  I just happened to want to use up the last of the beans in this particular bag.  This day I used a rum barrel aged coffee bean, ground myself, brewed as an espresso over ice and added a splash of sugar-free vanilla syrup and topped it off with whipped cream and a sprinkle of espresso powder!

Not a sponsored post... use any flavor coffee or bean you wish!



THIS ICED COFFEE:

4 oz. espresso
3-4 cups ice
splash of sugarfree vanilla syrup
Whipped Cream
Instant Espresso Powder sprinkled on top




 

 

NOTE:  The Frappe' maker in the photos is one I've owned for years and I'm almost positive isn't available for sale anymore.  Here is a link to Amazon to search for something that might suit you, (LINK) but you could also just brew your espresso, pour it over ice and blend it in your own blender.  


The coffee used this particular time was from Cooper's Cask Coffee but obviously we use all types, brands and flavors of coffee to make iced coffee and frappe's.
