Eventhough the spring of 2008 officially began on March 20, Minnesotans unfortunately were not blessed with sunny days and beautiful weather. Just like on Christmas, we had a snow-fall and hence a white Easter! We still held out hopes that warmer temperatures were around the corner. The weather forecast had more bad news in the form of wintry weather for us. With warmth in our hearts we are awaiting the sunny summer days. Meanwhile here's something that you can enjoy on a warm day to cool you down !!
Recipe (Serves 2)
Cappuccino mix - 3 tbsp
Hot water - 4 oz (1/2 cup)
Half and half - 1/4 cup
Sugar - 1 and 1/2 tsp
Ice cubes - 4
Make a strong coffee by adding the cappuccino mix to the hot water.
Allow it to cool to room temperature or chill in the refrigerator.
Place the ingredients in the blender in the order listed.
Blend until smooth for about 25-30 seconds.
Pour into glasses and garnish with chocolate or cinnamon.
- 4 oz of espresso coffee or any other strong coffee can be used instead of cappuccino mix. In that case, add about 1 and 1/2 tbsp of
sugar or as needed.
- The cappuccino mix is usually sweetened. So there is no need to add a lot of extra sugar.
