Café Frappé: The best recipe

Today, I’d like to teach you my favourite recipe for café frappé. It’s refreshing, it’s tasty, it’s different, and I guarantee it’ll be a hit with your friends!

What is a café frappé?

There are plenty of different recipes for making chilled coffee, and each one offers a slightly different taste. Either you can brew a hot coffee and then chill it using ice cubes, or you can brew the coffee using cold water from the start (unimaginatively known as a Cold Brew). But bear in mind: a café frappé is not the same as an iced coffee.

Ingredients :

  • Coffee (2 espressi)

  1. Make 2 espressi
  2. Pour the espressi into a blender and add the sugar

This café frappé recipe is the perfect way to treat your guests – around the swimming pool, why not?! – to an extra-special, tasty drink surprisingly low in calories.

But nothing’s stopping you from getting creative and adding your own special ingredients to make it even more indulgent: a scoop of ice cream (how about vanilla or coffee?), whipped cream, chocolate sauce… I’ll leave the rest to your imagination!

I look forward to seeing the photos of your own creations!!
