We had a left over instant coffee packet at our house from when my parents visited a couple of months ago. Neither Rob or I drink coffee, but for whatever reason I couldn’t throw it out.
So I came up with this glorious idea. Make a frappuccino.
Again, I used my trusty 5 dollar blender. And again, it whaled at me as it pulverized the ice.
Cooper stayed as far away as he could during this part of the process.
Starbucks frappuccinos have nothing on this drink. It is that good. I’m pretty sure it’s the instant jello pudding that does the trick. I considered using milk, but decided against it because I didn’t want to risk getting a runny drink. Frappuccinos are not supposed to be runny. They’re supposed to be frappe-y.
It smelled so good even Cooper was leaning in for a lick when I was consuming the drink. Don’t worry, I didn’t let him have any. Although, I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t have died because this past weekend we took Cooper with us to get ice cream and the people gave us a free scoop topped with a dog bone for Cooper and we totally let him have it.
Cooper was on a sugar high for the rest of the day.
