Frappés are a fan favorite when it comes to those looking for a sweet, frozen drink with an extra boost of caffeine. But cold coffees can be difficult to make at home, especially ones that need a little extra prep. Using this recipe, it's easy to whip up a perfect frappé with any of your favorite flavors.
- 10 chocolate/vanilla soy milk ice cubes [soy milk can also be substituted for almond or coconut milk]
- 1 cup cold brew coffee
- 3-4 tablespoons flavored syrup
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- Dairy free whipped cream
- Making a cold brew coffee at home means a little prep beforehand is a necessity. The night before, pour some soy milk [approximately one cup] into an ice tray. While the recommended amount of ice cubes to make is 10, you can adjust this amount as needed. Place into the freezer, the cubes should be frozen the next day.
- In a bowl, pour two and a half cups of ground coffee into a bowl. Pour four and a half cups of water [cold] over top. Stir the mixture and place it in the fridge, allowing it to get cold overnight. [You can substitute the ground coffee in this recipe for a dry chai tea mixture. Using the same steps, you can make a quick chai frappé.]
- Once the mixture is cold [normally the next day], drain the coffee and water mixture to get rid of any grounds. You may want to repeat this step to have as few grounds as possible.
- Break ice cubes from the ice tray into a small bowl, or immediately into a mixer.
- Pour ice cubes, coffee and any syrups into the mixer and blend until smooth. Serve while still frozen. Top with optional non-dairy whipped cream, or an additional drizzle of syrup.
