One-Minute Frappuccino (Shaken, Not Stirred)

Don't freak out, but I'm really not much of a Starbuck's person. Not because I work for the hipster coffee police (although I sympathize with them :)), but mostly because I don't want to spend the money. Don't get me wrong: I enjoy sipping a sugary, comforting drink in a cozy-ish, wooden atmosphere with mostly good music playing overhead. But if I'm going to splurge on a food item, I guess it's just not Starbuck's.


Regardless of everything I just said, the frappuccino is a winner of a drink: ice and coffee in the blender with sweetened condensed milk (or some kind of sugar-milk combination)? Pretty delish. 

Delish enough to inspire a whole new coffee routine in my life...

I drink my coffee black, and sometimes I don't finish all that I made... and here comes the frappuccino.


Ingredients:


  • Brewed coffee (in my case, yesterday's leftover coffee, which has been in the fridge overnight)
  • Ice cubes (not crushed)
  • Milk
  • Sugar

Instructions:


  • Put everything in a martini shaker. 
  • Shake 20 - 30 seconds. 
  • Pour. 
  • Yum.

Notes: 

  • I use just enough milk to turn the coffee a dark caramel color, but it really depends on your preference. (Remember a "normal" frappuccino would probably use extra strong coffee since it's going to be diluted, so you probably don't want to add too much milk.)
  • If you want ice and extra froth: pour as much as you can through the strainer in the shaker, then remove the lid, and pour the rest of the bubbles and ice in last. (Just remember there's a lot of water in there, so unless you want it super diluted, you might consider using extra strong coffee and more sugar.)


WHY YOU SHOULD LOVE THIS:

  1. You don't have to wash the blender. 
  2. You don't waste any coffee. 
  3. It takes less than 2 minutes, and you probably have all the ingredients on hand. 


If you're feeling extra fall-ish, as I was today, why not sprinkle some cinnamon on top? Just be sure to swirl that in... :)
