In the summer a frappucino from starbucks is my weakness, so I was determined to come up with my own low synned version that I can enjoy at home. This was lovely and refreshing. I love coffee, but when it is hot, sometimes you just need a cold drink. This can easily be varied too with different flavourings, the basics to get the flavour and iced coffee will be the same.
This recipe is gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, Slimming World (SP) and Weight Watchers friendly
Slimming Eats Recipe
Extra Easy – 1/2 HEa and 1.5 syns per serving
Green – 1/2 HEa and 1.5 syns per serving
Original – 1/2 HEa and 1.5 syns per serving
- Coffee of choice (I recommend not using instant)
- ½ cup (120ml) of 2% milk (1/2 HEa) (you can use a dairy free milk alternative)
- optional: sweetener of choice
- light aerosol cream (1.5 syns)
- Brew coffee of choice to double strength. I like to use a caramel flavoured ground coffee for this,
- Using a tall glass, fill it with ice. Add this to a blender with milk and blend till you have a milky slush.
- When coffee is brewed, fill about a ⅓ of the glass with the coffee, add sweetener of choice if using.
- Then pour in the milky slush to almost the top of the glass and carefully mix, so that the coffee mixes into the slush
- Top with some light aerosol cream and enjoy!!
- Lovely and freshing on a hot summer's day.
