Tania's Better Than Starbucks Frappuccino

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Loadedpbj

After realizing the amount of calories in one of those delightful drinks and how much of my paycheck I was handing over to Starbucks, I set out to create the perfect iced coffee drink. The secret is not what ingredients you use but how you use them.

Yum! I didn't follow the recipe exactly. We always have leftover coffee after DH brews the morning pot, so I did freeze some the other day and finally got around to making this. I didn't measure, just added some milk and sugar, plus a couple small hazelnut creamers. It was delicious! And I'll definitely be freezing more coffee ice cubes! Thanks for posting! So quick, easy and definitely much less expensive!
