homemade frapuccino

so, i love a certain chain's frappuccino.
but caffeine and i are not friends.
nor is my wallet friendly with buying things i dont need.
especially from companies who already make billions of dollars.
they don't need my money, that's for sure.

so i hit the world wide web for some recipe inspiration.
man, i love the world wide web.
looky what i found.

jen's decaf frappuccino remix

3/4 cup cold water
2 spoons of instant decaf coffee granules
3 TBS sugar
1 cup skim milk
2 cups ice

Add 2 spoonfulls of instant decaf coffee to cold water and stir to dissolve. (Add more or less granules to taste.)  Add coffee, sugar (more or less to taste), milk, and 2 cups of ice to blender and blend on high until ice is nice and crushed.  Pour into 2 big glasses to share (or one glass and refill till you can't drink anymore.)  No need for whipped cream... check out this froth.  oh yum. 

A decaf treat, which is good on my skittery heart.
And easy on my spending :)
Any time I want.
yay.

Yay! :) I've been making my own frappucinos lately too! I use my protein powder in them so I feel like I'm doing myself a favor by drinking them. ;)

Good job, Jen. Sounds like a winner. Like the idea of hiding something good for you (protien powder) in something good for spoiling you.

Yum! Sounds good! Thanks for sharing!

Have you tried adding flavors like chocolate or caramel? I'm going to have to try your recipe. My previous attempts have fallen way short of my expectations! I've never used coffee granules. I've tried regular coffee and espresso, but never seem to get it just right.
