Thick and Frothy Cold Coffee

On a hot summer morning, I love iced coffee and creamy, frozen frappucinos, but they are such a challenge to make at home!  Here is a quick recipe I’ve created through trial and error, for a cold coffee drink that’s refreshing when you can’t get to Starbucks, Tim Hortons or Dunkin Donuts!

Thick & Frothy Cold Coffee

2 cups of ice cubes

3/4 cup cooled, strong coffee

1/2 cup whole milk

2 packets of Splenda

3 T. of any flavored powered coffee drink mix (I use French Vanilla)

Sweetened cocoa powder for sprinkling on top, if desired.

Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth.  Serve immediately.

Tip:  If you prefer true iced coffee without the thickness,vigorously shake all ingredients in a cocktail shaker until mixed. This will eliminate thickness and separation.
