Mason Jar Frappuccino
Tired of spending half your paycheck on coffeehouse drinks? Pull up a chair and let me make your life a little easier. No blender needed!
what you'll need:
~3/4 c. strong, brewed coffee, cooled to room temperature
~3/4 c. milk
~1 packet of sweetener
~2 T. chocolate syrup
~2 T. liquid coffee creamer
~3 ice cubes
In a 16 oz. Mason jar, put all your ingredients followed with the ice cubes.
Put the lid and ring on and shake, shake, shake!
Taste it…does it need a little more sweetener?
I don’t like mine horribly sweet, so I stick with one packet of Splenda. The creamer and chocolate syrup add the rest of the sugar to sweeten.
As for the creamer, I used Coffeemate Italian Sweet Cream.
Its non-descript sweet and creamy that lets the coffee and chocolate shine through.
But, if you like hazelnut or coconut cream, go for it!
At this point, you can drink it right out of the jar or pour it over crushed ice and top with whipped cream and drizzle more chocolate for an authentic coffee house experience.
