Cranky Complaints-Lady Buys BOOKS! (or tries to)

easy smoothie

DSC08280I haven’t posted a coffee-frap recipe in a while, but this morning’s is yummy.  Not exactly low in anything, however.   Or cheap, because it uses Starbucks instant coffee granules. 

So this one’s not really one to be proud of in any department, but it is tasty.  Slightly bitter due to the Starbucks:  about a tablespoon of any other brand of instant would work fine.



Easy but Not Cheap or Low-Anything Coffee Smoothie

  1. Combine in blender, pulse a few times, then blend until smooth:
    • 1 packet Starbucks Via instant coffee, any flavour (Ted’s brother bought these for us, so technically, they were free)
    • 2 tbsp hot chocolate mix
    • 1 tbsp white sugar
    • 3/4 cup milk
    • 6 ice cubes

Pour into glass or, for extra coldness and watering-down, pour over ice.  Drink through straw to avoid cold teeth and brain freeze.
