I don't know where I got this recipe, I think I picked it up for my teens to try (I don't like cold coffee). It seems like a good alternative to the high priced drinks at our local coffee stands. When making coffee in the morning, refrigerate the leftovers to make this later in the day.
- 1⁄4 cup black coffee (room temperature)
- 1⁄4 cup milk (plus a little more, if needed, for smooth blending)
- 1 cup chocolate ice cream
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
- 1 cup ice, crushed
- 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
- cinnamon, for dusting
- Place black coffee, milk, ice cream, almond extract and crushed ice in blender jar. Add sugar or sugar substitute only if desired,(The taste is quite sweet without it!)
- With blender lid securely closed, pulse blender until mixture is smooth. If blades get stuck, add a little more milk.
- Pour 1 Tablespoon of chocolate syrup into the bottom of each glass. (This makes the drink look and taste even more delectable.)
- Divide the coffee frappe between your glasses and dust with cinnamon. Serve immediately!
- Variation: Use Vanilla Ice Cream with Vanilla extract.
- *Milk options: whole milk, skim milk, soy milk, etc.
- Optional Extras:.
- Extra scoops of ice cream, for garnish.
- Whipped cream, for topping.
- For adults an added Tbls or two of Godiva Liqueur, Amaretto, or Kaluha would be tasty.
Oh my gosh this is so good! Used my Keurig for a cup of coffee or I would have been drinking this all day. LOL Whirled everything together added a straw and I was enjoying a very good coffee drink and saving money. Made for Culinary Quest 2015.
This was toooo goood! I made this for Culinary Quest 2014 for breackfast (no alcohol addition!) and I would like to prepare this more often.<br/>I made the chocolate syrup myself and I used on the bottom of the glass and over the extra whipped cream as well.<br/>I prepared this only for myself in a high plastic bowl using the hand blender. <br/>Thanks a lot for this winner!
Terrific frappe. I enjoyed this creamy, cold coffee, chocolate treat very much. It was quick and really easy to make with excellent results. I garnished this with 1 small scoop of vanilla ice cream, a squirt of whipped cream and a good sprinkling of cinnamon. Thank you so much for sharing this lovely frappe. I made this for Culinary Quest 2014 for the Suitcase Gourmets.
