For a few years, we hosted a youth coffee house at our previous church. Each week, we would invite the teenagers out for a fun night of games and music. Making iced coffees, frappucinos, and cappuccinos became a regular staple as part of our event. In fact, we created a quarterly event called “Mochas for Missions” out of this theme. My husband, Austin, became quite familiar with DIY coffee recipes on account of those nights. Recently, I saved some leftover coffee and asked him to pull out one of his old recipes for us. Like a sweetheart, he took to the challenge immediately. You can go HERE and read his guest post that came about from that night.
DIY Frappucino Recipe
2 cups frozen coffee
1 cup cold coffee
1 cup 1/2 & 1/2
3 tablespoons caramel
3 tablespoons chocolate syrup
3 tablespoons raw sugar
How to Make the Coffee
You can freeze some of your leftover coffee in ice cube trays ahead of time. This keeps the coffee from becoming watered down. Also, if you want to brew double-strength coffee and put in the refrigerator, it will make your drink taste stronger. To brew double-strength, reduce the amount of water you would normally use per scoop by half.
Simply place all of these ingredients in a blender and run until it reaches the consistency you are looking for. Top with whipped cream and chocolate syrup if you would like.
This simple coffee recipe only takes a few minutes to make. You can always consider sitting down with your spouse for a coffee date. 🙂
