The sun came out in Seattle yesterday. Yep. That’s right. Sun.in.Seattle – IN APRIL! And when we see that rare yellow ball in the sky I just can’t help myself, I get a lil’ giddy. I took my puppy to the park and wore sunglasses 😉 I realize that summer won’t be here until at least July 5, but yesterday, I enJOYed the sunshine. That’s how we do in Seattle.
Another thing we do in Seattle is coffee. In fact, it’s gotten so bad for me that if I don’t get my
coffee Venti Americano with room in the am…watch out! From late October through at least March, it’s a hot coffee. Yesterday, since it was April AND it was sunny, I made the decision that it’ll be Iced Venti Americano with room for me until at least October. I’m happy summer is on it’s way. It’s the little things…
But, here’s a BIG thing – now I don’t have to out for an afternoon coffee treat, because I’ve discovered the Nescafe Frappe. That’s it in the picture above. Isn’t it lovely? Doesn’t it look refreshing? and frothy? and creamy? Yep – it’s all of those things plus it’s super simple and you can make it at home.
- 3 tsp. Nescafe Classico
- 2-3 tsp. sugar (or caramel syrup)
- ½ cup of water
- milk or cream
- Put the Nescafe crystals into a cocktail shaker, or bottle with a lid. If you're using sugar, or even better - caramel syrup - put that in, too.
- Add the water and shake vigorously for about 30 seconds.
- Pour the frothy coffee into a glass and top with milk or cream.
- Add ice.
