This thick, delicious frappe (basically, a milk shake with ice cream, coffee and flavoring) can be made with leftover coffee—just make an extra batch of coffee in the morning and refrigerate until you're ready. Follow this recipe as is, or change the flavors using different kinds of ice cream or syrups. Or make it really low-cal, the way they traditionally make it in Greece: Cold coffee, milk, sweetener and crushed ice mixed in the blender.

Ingredients

¼ cup

black coffee (room temperature)

¼ cup

milk* (plus a little more, if needed, for smooth blending)

1 cup

chocolate ice cream

1 tsp

almond extract

1 cup

crushed ice (or smallest cubes possible)

2 tbsp

chocolate syrup

Cinnamon, for dusting

4 tsp

of sugar or two packets of sugar substitute (optional to taste)

Extra scoops of ice cream, for garnish (optional)

Whipped cream, for topping (optional)

*Milk options: whole milk, skim milk, soy milk, etc.


directions

Step 1

Place black coffee, milk, ice cream, almond extract and crushed ice in blender. Add sugar or sugar substitute only if desired. (The taste is quite sweet without it!)

Step 2

With blender securely closed, pulse until mixture is smooth. If blades get stuck, add a little more milk.

Step 3

Pour 1 Tablespoon of chocolate syrup into the bottom of each glass. (This makes the drink look and taste even more delectable.)

Step 4

Divide the coffee frappe between glasses and dust with cinnamon. Serve immediately!
