Let’s talk coffee! It’s delish, it supplies a nice energy boost, it contains antioxidants, and you can fancy it up by making it extra-creamy and topping it off with whipped cream made from rice milk. Mmm, I’ve definitely got dessert-like coffees on the brain—especially frappés! Instead of splurging on fancy coffee drinks and having to modify ingredients at coffee shops, why not make your own?

By making frappés at home, you control every ingredient. Want an extra dash of flavored syrup? No problem! Want to add soy milk? No extra charge! Plus, you can use healthier ingredients.

This super-simple recipe is perfect for penny pinchers and coffee lovers alike. Enjoy!
