Well, Isaac has officially canceled school tomorrow…must be time to utilize the kitchen! Today, I’m working on two recipes at once: coffee and chicken. The last coffee drink from Pinterest was a disaster; we’re due for another attempt. This recipe was originally pinned by Jennifer Drummond, which she found on a healthy food blog named Peanut Butter and Peppers.
There’s a note on the recipe that you can use brewed coffee instead, which is exactly what I did after our last little mishap with instant coffee. I left it in the freezer to chill by the ice cream for about 6 hours (we had errands to run during our “tropical storm”)
I was a little surprised to find a solid block of coffee ice when I pulled it out around 3:30pm. Mike had to slice it with his “man knife” before I could even get it into the blender. After the display of man-defeats-food, we were able to get the ingredients put together and blend. (seriously, blend, blend, blend. Took about 5 minutes to get all the chunks out so it was able to be pulled through a straw).
Taste: 3.5/5 (not sweet enough)
Taste: 4/5 (not quite sweet enough)
Ease of preparation: 5/5
Ease of cleanup: 5/5
Availability of ingredients: 5/5
While it’s definitely not Starbucks (or Black and Brew…), it’s not awful. In a pinch when I’m desperate for a frappe, I might make this again.
