  • Frappacino

    I used to love Starbuck's indulgent frappacinos, and would often make my own in the blender. Here is a fairly low carb version, for those of you who do dairy.

    1 - 2 tsp instant coffee
    1 tsp (unsweetened) cocoa powder
    1 tsp sugar
    1 - 2 cups crushed ice
    approx 1/2 cup heavy cream

    put ingredients into blender in order, and mix well. You may have to adjust the volume of cream, depending on your machine.

      Try it with a drop of vanilla, 1 part coconut milk to three parts coffee, and a very healthy dose of cinnamon. It's my breakfast after extended fasts.

              Holy cow - I just had to check their site to find out for sure! A large (venti) with all the bells and whistles tops off at 760 calories. Although, to be fair, most large sizes are around 500. Carbs alone are around 100 g, give or take a dozen. Eek!

                I'm a starbucks addict, but I'm so happy I never advanced beyond a grande coffee w/ cream. I see some of these people ordering these drinks and I wonder why they don't just go across the street to the ice cream parlor and do it right.
