It is quite easy to get into the coffee habit. There are hundreds of coffee shops everywhere. There’s practically one on every block. The only reason that anyone has not tasted coffee will be because they have chosen not to try it.
While a hot cup of coffee will always be a favorite, there will always be those who prefer coffee cold. If the frappucino is something you’d rather have, try this recipe. It will cost you a lot less than your store bought drink and is absolutely easy to make from the comfort of your own home.
Don’t expect it to look exactly like your favorite drink; they do have the advantage of special equipment and experienced baristas. The important factor will be the taste. Feel free to adjust the recipe until it suits you perfectly.
