So, y’all know I’m big on Starbucks frappucinos. I’ve also done something similar at home using leftover coffee. Then Sade, who doesn’t cook–like at all dropped this in my inbox.
5 Min(s) Prep
2 servings, 1 cup each (Unless you’re Sade or me, and then it’s just ONE big glassfull! 😉 )
Make a refreshing Coffee Slushie, perfect for a hot summer day. This grown-up Coffee Slushie combines instant coffee, milk, sugar and ice cubes.
What You Need
1 Tbsp. MAXWELL HOUSE Instant Coffee, any variety
1-1/2 cups ice cubes
3/4 cup milk
2 Tbsp. sugar
Let’s Make It
1 – Place all ingredients in blender container; cover. Blend on high speed until ice is crushed.
2 – Pour evenly into 2 glasses.
3 – Serve immediately.
Tip 1 – Mocha Slushie: Add 1 Tbsp. chocolate syrup to ingredients in blender before blending.
Tip 2 – Vanilla Coffee Slushie: Add 1/2 tsp. vanilla to ingredients in blender before blending.
Tip 3 – Special Extra: To serve in frosted glasses, store clean empty glasses in freezer. Fill with prepared beverage just before serving.
Note: Sade informs me that you can add more coffee if you want stronger coffee flavor. (ie. MORE caffeine. 😆 )
You can CLICK HERE to get all the details over at My Food & Family because you might be interested in the nutritional info. I find it interesting that Sade is being mostly reticent these days but broke her silence long enough to point me in this direction. Makes me wonder what she knows… The Scooby Gang, on the other hand, keep crowding in. That’s okay. I know where Sade and Sinjen are headed. She can run, but she can’t hide… Really? You forget, I carry a weapon for a living and I know where you sleep at night. Yeah, like that makes me nervous. 🙄 Anyway, if you haven’t already, y’all really need to check out the Penumbra Papers series. I’ve recently featured THAT OL’ BLACK MAGIC and this week, it’s SEASON OF THE WITCH wherein Sade meets Sinjen. Pssst Can y’all keep a secret? 🤫 That scene is one of my all-time favorites! Just sayin’…
Anyway, you might want to try this one at home–the drink AND the book. FYI, all the Penumbra books are available from a wide-range of retailers. Just click on the cover or the titles. The links go to a universal landing page where you can find your favorite store.
Just out of curiosity, what’s your favorite flavor?
