Frappuccino for breakfast

July 12th  •  Posted in Recipe

On Wednesday I asked for something refreshing for breakfast and remembered my boyfriend used to know how to prepare a frappuccino and being that we had all the ingredients already in the fridge, we simply went for it. It was delicious and simply what we needed, plus we don’t have Starbucks here in Italy, so having a simple and quick recipe it’s always super handy.

Ingredients for 2 frappuccinos:
250ml milk
1 cooled espresso
2 tsp cocoa powder
6 ice cubes
2 tsp sugar
Whipped cream, chopped hazelnuts and caramel topping to serve

He started by throwing the milk into the mixer with the six ice cubes and coffee, mixed, added the cocoa powder and sugar and mixed again for a pair of minutes. Add more sugar if you like it to be extra sweet. Throw it in a glass and serve with whipped cream, chopped hazelnuts and caramel on top (or whatever you like on your frappuccino).

It’s seriously the quickest and easiest recipe, but it came out delicious and it was the perfect refreshing summer breakfast drink to pair with some freshly baked chocolate cookies, something a little different from my usual iced soy latte. Don’t know about you but I’ll give it a whirl on my own for sure!


Iced Soy Latte

June 13th  •  Posted in Recipe

When you decide to cut dairy out of your diet in wintertime you don’t realize how you’ll miss that good old iced latte in the warmer months. Even though I was the biggest fan of the classic iced latte I used to drink, I’m just blessing soy milk and am so grateful it does exist.

Preparing iced latte is so easy and quick, and you just need to remember to have some ice in your freezer, but for the rest it’s just the easiest thing to do but I love how refreshing but still super delicious iced latte is especially when the weather is so hot and I don’t really want to drink anything warm. What I do is simply throw six ice cubes in a glass or cup, then fill half of it with freshly prepared coffee and half with soy milk then add some sugar, and it’s done. I really dislike how soy milk taste on its own – not to mention how I hate vanilla soy milk – but with coffee it’s so good and you can’t actually taste the soy flavor which I’m not always a fan of.

Should I try iced soy chai latte? Yes, I should. And maybe in wintertime I will love some classic and warm soy chai latte as well!

How do you like your coffee in summertime? Are you a soy milk fan?
