Keep cool with iced cappuccino blended to a frosty beverage!
I absolutely love drinking a cup of coffee in the morning. It’s a habit that I started when I was in college to try to keep me awake to study.
Like many students I had a terrible routine of laying in bed with my books piled around me, which promptly put me to sleep.
With that, I had to try any tactic that I could to get my work done. I quickly learned that if I had a little caffeine in me I wouldn’t nod off so quickly.
That’s how the love relationship started, and now I just drink coffee because I like it.
Drinking a cup of coffee has become a part of my morning routine. As I’m getting ready for work a cup of coffee is nearby, and forty minutes later when I get to my office, I’m ready for a second cup.
But the summer months have been a different story. It’s been unseasonably warm here in Monterey.
The weather has tipped to the high seventies, edging in the eighties for a few weeks too.
I know, I know, that’s dream weather compared to what some of you are experiencing.
I’m telling you that since we moved along the coast almost 10 years ago, we’ve gotten so used to the cool ocean breeze that we just can’t handle the heat.
So we’ve been cooling down with cold coffee and Frosty Cappuccinos!
Instead of heading to one of those expensive coffee shops for a blended coffee drink, I made this coffee concentrate for iced coffee and have it chilled in my refrigerator ready to be used at any time.
Since I have a portable blender at work that I use for smoothies, I can take my concentrate with me and enjoy a Frosty Cappuccino during the afternoon too!
