Memories from August 2017: BREAKFAST SERIES - POST #2: BELA’S-FRAPPUCCINO RECIPE, NOT YOUR USUAL STORE PURCHASED DRINK!
Ok, so after drinking several cups of the famous Starbucks Frappuccino, and looking at some of the copycat recipes in the web, I decided that something was missing. Therefore; I decided to add other ingredients to my own taste to step it up a notch. So, I came up with my own version, Bela’s Frappuccino Recipe. Hey, after all, some of my ancestors were Italian.
Approximate Prep and Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Approximate Cost: $2.70 per serving
Difficulty Level: X Easy
Servings: one 16 oz. cup plus (or three 1-cup glasses)
12 ice cubes (0)
1 ½ cup of Carnation Evaporated milk, cold, (or use regular milk) (.40)
1 tbsp. Vanilla (.30)
3 ½ tsp. Dark or milk Chocolate Hershey’s Syrup (1 tbsp. to drip over the drink) (.40)
1/3 cup strong black coffee (or 3 coffee ice cubes) ** (.20)
2 tbsp. powdered sugar (.20)
2 ½ tbsp. Carnation Malted Milk (.20)
1 generous scoop of ice cream (vanilla or chocolate) (.50)
1 big dollop of Cool Whip Cream (.25)
1 scoop of Cool Whip Cream for topping (.25)
Mix all the ingredients in a blender, except 1 ½ tsp. of chocolate syrup.
Before you pour the Frappuccino into the cup, drizzle 1 tsp. of chocolate syrup around the inside of the cup, then pour the Frappuccino, top it with a scoop of whipped cream, and drizzle your desired amount of chocolate syrup over the whipped cream. Enjoy J
**Hack: Use any leftover coffee at room temp, pour into an ice tray and freeze to make coffee ice cubes. The next time you make a Frappuccino, pop 3 of the ice cubes in the blender and you are good to go.
