Are Iced Cappuccinos a thing? I feel like there is iced coffee and then there are cappuccinos- but has anyone ever done both…? Well, I did on accident and the results were so phenomenal that I had to share!
It is a beautiful day today, which is perfect for Mother’s Day, and since we have spent the day outside, I was looking for a cool and refreshing afternoon pick me up. I was attempting to make a frappucino and here is what happened (I promise, it is a thousand times yummier! ; )
- 1 cup of cold coffee
- 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 handful of ice
- 1 packet of stevia
- - Prepare a cup of stronger than normal coffee and allow time to cool. I like to make mine on my coffee pot's lowest temperature setting and set in the freezer for 1 hour.
- - Put all ingredients into a blender (I used a vita-mix) and blend. The longer you blend, the frothier the drink becomes and the closer it gets to a cappuccino consistency.
- - The ice will not blend like a frappucino, rather it clumps together and makes lumps of ice similar to a snow cone. I like to keep mine in my drink to keep it cool. I have never had problems with the coffee tasting watery even after all of the ice has melted.
- - Depending on the variety of almond milk you select, the calorie count may vary. Most unsweetened almond milk varieties, including the one I use, is 30 calories a cup.
