Homemade frappucino

Sometimes, it’s just one of those days, when coffee is a necessity, but a hot steaming cup just doesn’t work…

Enterice coffee! At Starbucks, they’ve known this for a long time, but who knows what kinds of stuff they put it in.

This afternoon, I had such a craving for a frappucino, I just made one myself. I have a Starbucks within reach at the airport, but these days, going to the airport for a quick coffee just isn’t a good idea.

And let’s be honest, making it yourself is not that much trouble and equally good, if not better!

There are about a thousand different versions, but I worked with the ingredients I had around the house!

So here’s my recipe for a – not extremely healthy but still healthier than the Starbucks version – ice coffee frappucino… thingy!
