Frozen Coffee Vanilla Shake Recipe: Starbucks Frappuccino Style Drink

It gives a little coffee buzz and of course you could also make it de-caf if you wish. This icy treat is reminiscent to everyone’s favorite Starbucks Frappuccino, but it is a heck of a lot cheaper and kinder to the waistline. You can make it in seconds at home and it’s got no sugar in it. My version has about 20 calories in 12 ounces versus 180 in the coffee shop version. Virtually no carbs in mine versus 36 grams derived from sugar in theirs. Nothing ever stops me from craving ice cream and frozen treats.

This one combines my current loves: coconut ice cream (vegan!) Vietnamese coffee. Who invented sweetened condensed milk?

If you wanna make this vegan, no biggie. So to do a little re-cap: super strong coffee, sweetened condensed milk, coconut ice cream and ice. Happy Freakin’ Weekend!

Perfect Iced Coffee

When I wake up, often around the time party animals on the west coast are just heading home, I start each day not with a cup of freshly brewed hot java, but with a tall, blessed glass of creamy iced coffee in a glass. I’ve been an iced coffee freakazoid for years and years. To say I couldn’t live without it is an understatement. It gives me the tools I need to cope.
