I’m excited to share a recipe with you for a great frappe, similar to those sold at local coffee shops and national chains. I was looking to duplicate the same smooth, flavored icy espresso drink. It took me some time to master the recipe and get it just right. I came up with this recipe about 11 years ago; this is a drink that I like to share with my friends and family on those hot, sunny summer days. If you want to save some money and make a great tasting frappe, then try out this recipe:
The thing you’ll need is some really good espresso. I recommended using Café LaSemeuse.
Next you’ll need a reliable espresso machine, one that will produce shots in 20 to 25 seconds. It’s important that you put all the liquid ingredients in the blender first.
Place the espresso shots, sweetened condensed milk, and flavor shot into the blender. Pour the ice over the liquid in the blender. Next, pour the milk on the top of the ice and blend.
You should have a frappe that tastes even better than the ones you can get at your local coffee shops or national chains. Let me know what you think of this drink.
