Blended Cheapuccino

Wondering what a Blended Cheapuccino is? Well, it's a blended coffee drink that you make at home. Since most of us are trying to cut costs, a great way to save a whole lot of money is to give up the Starbuck©'s habit.  I know, I know...it's yummy, and you're addicted and you don't have time to make your own.  I used all of these excuses too!  Seriously, studies have shown that the average cost for a single trip to a nationally recognized coffeehouse is $3.25 which adds up to $16.25 a week; $65.00 a month or $780.00 a year!
 
This recipe is so fast and easy that I'm sure you can find time over the weekend to get your supplies ready for the week. These cheapuccinos are also fabulous if you have guests during the summer months and they make a splendid presentation with whipped cream, a sprinkling of cinnamon on top and some cinnamon sticks on the side.


To create your very own Blended Cheapuccino:

Directions:
  • Make a very strong pot of coffee (use twice the grinds that you would normally use)
  • Pour the hot brewed coffee into ice cube trays and freeze;
  • Pop the frozen cubes into a plastic freezer bag, and return to the freezer.
When you're in need of a treat...Place into blender: 
  • 7 frozen coffee cubes, 1 cup of milk, and 2 ounces of flavoring
  • Sugar or favorite sweetener to taste (optional)
  • Puree until smooth for a great drink. 
  • Garnish with whipped cream if desired. 
During the summer months, be sure to keep bags of coffee cubes on hand and enjoy!

  2. This is a great idea and a practical recipe.
    I wonder if you could fill an ice tray with coffee (in the morning) that you are not going to finish (fresh coffee that is?)

    I enjoyed visiting this morning.
