The heat is on, and there is no better way to cool off this summer than with a blended, frozen beverage. Many people satisfy this craving by ordering a frappe from their local café, but you can actually save yourself money (and a trip to you local coffee shop) by making this delicious treat at home with Cappuccine Gourmet Frappe Mix.
Besides being incredibly yummy, this powdered drink mix is about as easy as it gets when it comes to making it. All you have to do is blend a couple of scoops of Cappuccine with ice, milk and coffee and or espresso and you are good to go! What’s nice about Cappuccine is that there a number of flavors to try out and even more options when it comes to brewing with it, so you can get creative when concocting various recipes. After all, isn’t experimenting with different flavors supposed to be what cooking is all about?
For instance, we’ve also been know to throw in of our Monin syrups or fruit in the blender with our Cappuccine for added flavor. While Cappucinne specializes in frappes, you don’t have to reserve this drink mix just for hot months, you can also try mixing it with hot water or milk to create hot cocoa. Or even try it with hot coffee or espresso to make a mocha-like drink! The options are endless.
In our most recent foray into the kitchen, Brandi and Kaylie blended up an Extreme Toffee Coffee frappe. This may just be one of our favorite flavors, as there are actual chunks of toffee in the powder, like a Heath bar. Watch them in action as they brew up the drink to join in on the fun!
