If you’ve got some coffee left over from breakfast, save it to make sweet, refreshing frappes later on. Yours just might be as good as that ubiquitous Seattle-based coffee chain’s. Serves one.

Things You'll Need


Prepare 2/3 c. strong coffee.

While the coffee is still warm, add 1 tsp. sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved.

Add 1/3 c. milk and stir.

Place 1/2 c. ice in blender and add sweetened coffee.

Turn the blender on and off quickly a few times to break up the ice.

Add 2 tbsp. vanilla ice cream. Turn blender on to Medium and blend.

After the coffee and ice have blended, add another 1/2 c. ice.

Blend until smooth. If you want a thicker frappe, add a little more ice.

Pour into large glass and serve immediately.
