Irish Cream Frappe
Even though we're all (me most of all!) geared towards Fall right now the truth is we still have a few warm days ahead of us. Before it got too cold I thought I'd share my recipe for our Irish Cream Frappe. You can also make this hot by omitting the ice and adding more coffee! Just a note, this is full fat so you've been fairly warned!
1 oz of Irish Cream syrup (If you want to make this an adult beverage substitute Irish Cream liquor instead!)
2 oz white chocolate or white frappe powder
1 oz sugar
1 oz half and half
2 oz espresso or strong coffee
1 cup of ice
As much whip cream and white chocolate syrup as you want for garnish.
Making it is simple, throw all the ingredients into a blender and blend away! I use 1 cup of ice and the coffee is hot when I blend, which to me makes the best frappe consistency. If you want it smoother or thicker adjust ice as needed. To garnish, top with whip cream and line cup with white chocolate syrup (this is optional but adds a nice touch!) Keep in mind, this can always be adjusted to your own taste, which I definitely suggest! Use skim milk or Splenda to cut calories if that's your thing, or go the full fat way (like I prefer!) by following the recipe above. Enjoy!!!
