Lately DR has been addicted to drinking Starbucks Frappuccinos. Harvest is usually a time when he hits the caffeine hot and heavy considering all the hours he's working. He's not a big coffee drinker and soda has been giving him heartburn this year. So he's switched to Frapp's and he goes through em' like crazy!
I LOVE em' too! They are sooo good! He brought home all these empty bottles from work the other day. I hated throwing them in the recycling and buying more from the grocery store. A four pack costs $5.50 after all. "Maybe I could find a recipe that's close." I wondered.
And I DID!!
I searched Pinterest and found this recipe. This blog has great photos to go along with making the Frappuccino too. Check it out.
I thought there might be a bit of a difference in taste but there wasn't! It tasted just like the stuff I bought at the grocery!
Here's the recipe;
1 1/2 cups strong brewed coffee*
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon ascorbic acid**
6 cups whole milk OR 6 cups low-fat milk + 1 Tablespoon pectin***
But I'll have to see if DR notices the difference! I'm going to encourage a little white lie and let him THINK I bought it at the store. We'll see what he says!
