I know , I know. It’s October, in Michigan, and I am posting a recipe for a frozen mocha frappuccino. But when a girl wants a frozen frappuccino, a girl gets a frozen frappuccino.
Even if it is 40 degrees out in the morning.
Ya know, heading to the coffeehouse to get a frappuccino used to be almost a daily habit of mine.
Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately for my wallet), moving here to Michigan and this small town doesn’t lend itself to the daily coffeehouse habit I once had.
The closest coffeehouse to me is all the way in a different town and nowhere close to any of the daily routes I would take to do grocery shopping, running errands, or even taking my daughter to school.
So I have had to begin getting creative with my coffeehouse drinks when I am having a craving.
Cravings for a frozen coffee treat have no limits on the weather or what time of year it is. They just happen and I have found a super quick and easy way to make my favorite coffeehouse drinks here at home no matter when it is.
Iced coffee is also a favorite treat of mine and on a recent grocery trip to Walmart I stumbled upon the ready-made International Delight Iced Coffee when picking up some juice for the baby.
It was in the same section so how could I have missed that??
Immediately, I thought about all the different things I could make with it and even make my favorite frozen frappuccinos at home.
I mean, besides just chugging it straight from the carton because that is something that I would do and am super ok with.
Apparently my hubby also loves frozen coffeehouse drinks as much as I do because he promptly stole one of them after I told him I was finished shooting and proceeded to chug it down and get a brain freeze in the process.
Yep. The non-hot coffee drinker of the house chugged one of these down in 2.3 seconds flat.
So it looks like I will be making more of these very soon.
