Vanilla Frappachino (v)

Yeah I know I blogged a mocha one last week, but this is also worth trying. Honest.

For one person you need:
250ml double strength coffee, brewed and left to go cold, then chilled.
2 tsp sugar
4 tbsp vanilla swedish glace
1 cup ice

Place everything in a blender and whizz till smooth. Serve in a long glass and enjoy the buzz.

Mocha Frappachino (v)

It’s hot today. And I am very tired. Time for a cold coffee…

For one person you need:
250ml double strength coffee (brewed with 2 scoops coffee for one small cafitiere)
3 tsp sugar
2 tbsp chocolate swedish glace
100ml soya milk
Handful ice cubes

Make the coffee and chill it well. Place everything into a blender goblet and blitz till smooth. Drink.

The *Perfect* Soya Latte (v)

OK OK this is a non recipe but remember what I’ve said before, this is a blog to teach my son as well as to record what we eat/experiment with. And I hope therefore that by writing this down both my husband and son can learn how to make me happy through the medium of coffee…!!

For one steaming and gorgeous mug you need:
125ml soya milk, preferably Alpro fresh soya milk
200ml fresh, strong coffee. Preferably Monsooned Malabar. Made from freshly ground beans in a french press.
2 tsp vanilla caster sugar
Chocolate dust to serve
A mug of sufficient capacity, preferably with a wide diameter

Place the sugar and milk into a mug and nuke on high for 1 minute. Make the coffee. Froth the milk with an aerolatte for about 30 seconds till foamy. Pour in the coffee, into the middle of the foam. Gently stir to mix. Check it hasn’t split (if it has swear profusely, chuck away and start again…). Top up to the brim with coffee. Dust with chocolate powder and add a smidgen of freshly grated nutmeg. Serve to me on a silver tray on bended knee. Retire gracefully and leave me in a-b-s-o-l-u-t-e silence whilst I enjoy.
