Make Your Own: Frappe

Save your money, make your own!
Here's what I do.

First, refrigerate your leftover coffee. I usually have a cup of coffee in the morning, so rather than let any of the rest go to waste, I store it in an Simply Lemonade bottle.



Now, get out your blender. Think about what you want to toss in.  I'm going to use coffee, milk, caramel, agave syrup and, of course, ice.


Poor in ice, 1/4 - 1/2 cup coffee, a splash of milk, several good squirts of Caramel, a good squirt or two of agave (you can use sugar instead).  Pulse a few times and then blend.  (I have a smoothie/iced drink setting, so I use that.)


Enjoy!

Tips:
- Add in a stale brownie or a cookie at the end and pulse a few times.
- Use chocolate syrup instead of caramel.
- Top with whipped cream
- Use flavored coffee
- Experiment!
