Almost summer days...


call for iced capps! I just can't bear to pay the 3 bucks or whatever it is for these delicious frothy wonders so I pulled out my personal blender (one of my favourite kitchen appliances) and put this together.

homemade iced cappucino
1 cup skim milk
1 tsp instant coffee powder (or you could use a bit of brewed coffee if you had some leftover)
4 tsp sugar
4-6 ice cubes

Blend until slushy and frothy and enjoy.
This also has much less fat than the store bought variety so I can enjoy it with less guilt :)

p.s. for any of you reading this who know me and my strong reaction to caffeine and are concerned, I use decaf :)

I love making these as well and can't to get started! One friend of mine recommends using icing sugar to make it fluffy. Also using cold brewed coffee to make your ice cubes gives it a great taste!

I will think of you the next time I am on the deck drinking one!!

I've done the coffee ice cubes but we rarely drink coffee, they do give it a great taste though
