It isn’t easy making a frappe if you want it somewhat creamy, low-fat and not full of non-dairy creamers (which while they produce a very creamy frothy drink they are not very heart healthy). So while this doesn’t have one swooning and saying “Oh Starbucks I will never visit you again” it does cure the coffee cravings on a morning when the snow isn’t stopping.
Brown Sugar Frappe
- 1½ cups 1 % low-fat dairy milk (higher fat will produce a smoother, richer drink)
- ¼ cup dry non-fat dairy milk
- ¼ cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 Tbsp instant espresso (Medaglia D’ Oro Instant Espresso Coffee)
- 3 cups ice cubes
In a blender combine the milk, dry milk, sugar and espresso powder. Blend on high for 30 seconds to dissolve the sugar. Add in the ice cubes and process until smooth (no large ice chunks). If your blender has a high setting of ‘frappe’ use that (mines does).
