Coffee Frappe

18 ice cubes, crushed (to 22)
7 oz double-strength coffee, chilled
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp syrup: vanilla, hazelnut, raspberry or other
whipped cream, garnish

Place the ice, coffee, sugar and syrup in a blender. Blend until the frappe is smooth. Pour into a large, tall glass. Garnish with a dollop of whipped cream


2 tbsp instant espresso powder
1/2 cup hot tap water
2 cup ice cubes
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk

Dissolve espresso powder in hot water. Allow to cool to room temperature. (The quickest way is to mix the ingredients in a small metal bowl and swirl.) Combine espresso mixture, sweetened condensed milk and ice in blender. Blend on high for one minute, until no visible chunks of ice are left. Serve with a spoon and a straw.
