I have to admit, I’m not a huge coffee drinker. In fact, I mostly hate coffee. I like coffee/hot fudge sundaes, and I discovered that I like Mocha Frappuccinos from Starbucks. And they used to make this wonderful Raspberry Mocha Frappuccino, oh my, what a treat! But I haven’t seen that one in a while. Hmmm, looks like I’ll be doing some recipe creating!
So, back to the fact that I don’t love coffee but I love this recipe.
I came up with this last spring when I was trying to stop drinking Dr. Pepper. I always want a soda after breakfast, but decided I needed to replace that with something a little healthier. Everyone else seems to enjoy their morning coffee, so I found a way to join them. Vanilla Frappuccino!
It’s not overly sweet, so even though it can be enjoyed as a treat, it’s also a nice morning drink. The only sugar is in the tablespoon of white chocolate chips, and I use coconut milk for added health benefits. So, all things considered, it’s a way healthier thing for me to be drinking than Dr. Pepper and it’s delicious!
I make the coffee in this sweet little French Press. (Click the image to purchase one or see more details.)
I love it because I can just put it away in the cabinet when I’m not using it. And since I’m not a huge coffee drinker, that’s not very often. It’s small, and it didn’t cost much, which is another perk, especially for something I don’t use every day.
I think I might need to get this post finished and go make myself a Vanilla Frappuccino! Or maybe I’ll try my hand at that raspberry one, yum!
