It’s that time of year! All the cravings for iced, coffees, frappucinos and any other slushy drink! This delicious take on a frap can be made the night before and blended in the morning. It is made with 3 wholesome ingredients (coffee, soy milk and ice), does not cost you 5$ and most importantly is plastic free!
Put your milk in an ice cube tray the night before to make soy milk cubes and use it instead of ice cubes.
- ½ Cup Strength and a half brewed coffee cooled OR 1 shot espresso*
- ¼-1/2 Cup Soy milk**
- 1 Cup Ice
- 2 Medjool Dates or 1 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
- To make cold brew coffee add coffee grounds and cold/room temperature water to a french press. I use about 3 tbsp coffee grounds for 2 cups of coffee. Set in fridge overnight, do not press. Alternatively, mix water and coffee grounds in a bowl or mug, strain through a coffee filter in the morning.
- In the morning press coffee and blend with milk and ice. Alternatively substitute a shot of espresso, preferably cooled. (Milk proportions are in such a big range depending on if you feel like more of a cappuccino or blended iced coffee).
- Take to go and enjoy!
** I prefer soy in coffee beverages but feel free to use the plant milk of your choosing! Pay attention if your milk is sweetened (will say 'original') on the package or unsweetened. You will most likely not need the dates/maple syrup if it is sweetened!
