Author: Rob Date Posted:26 May 2015
If you've ever ordered a coffee frappe at a trendy cafe, you know they don't come cheap. Why not learn how to make one at home? A frappe is delicious, refreshing and perfect for serving to guests.
Here are two recipes you can try.
Martha Stewart's Coffee Frappe
This recipe comes from the Martha Stewart website.
- 3 medium scoops vanilla ice cream
- 1 cup ice
- 1 cup chilled brewed coffee
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons Simple Syrup
- Whipped cream
- Cocoa powder
Blend ice cream, ice, coffee, milk, and simple syrup in a blender until smooth. Pour into a tall glass. Top with whipped cream, and dust with cocoa powder.
To make Martha Stewart's Simple Syrup, simply heat a half cup of water and a half cup of water slowly. Stir until the sugar is dissolved and let the mixture cool.
Skinny Caramel Frappuccino
Are there too many calories in Martha Stewart's recipe for you? Don't worry; this Skinny Caramel Frappuccino from Averie Cooks will satisfy your sweet tooth without the calories. According to the site, you'll only be indulging in 50 calories:
- 3 cups ice cubes
- 1 cup of strong cold coffee
- 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- Sugar free sweetener: Averie recommends white stevia powder or liquid stevia drops, but you can use your favourite
- Vanilla extract (optional)
After you've mixed the above ingredients together, garnish with 2 tablespoons of fat free whipped topping and a tablespoon of sugar free caramel sauce. Most of your calories will be in the caramel sauce, but they only add up to about 45, so if you love caramel sauce, feel free to lash out and use a little more.
