It is not a secret that I’m a huge coffee lover.
And frappe is one of my favorite iced coffee drinks.
I prefer it to frappuccino. It is less sweet, there is more coffee flavor and it is just lighter.
Not many coffee shops offer frappe though, this is why I like to make it at home.
Frappe is a Greek iced coffee made with instant coffee, sugar, water, ice and sometimes milk, cream or condensed milk.
This Vanilla Frappe Recipe is not a traditional frappe recipe and you’ll soon find out why.
It is made with Simply Pure® Vanilla Coffee Creamer and has the perfect balance of vanilla flavor and sweetness.
I recently got to try Simply Pure® coffee creamers and now I buy them regularly.
On my recent trip to Walmart, I got one of each Simply Pure® Vanilla And Caramel creamer.
They are available in the dairy section.
I use them in my morning coffee all the time.
They are my favorite everyday creamer. I love having them in the fridge.
They are the perfect fit for my lifestyle.
They add the perfect flavor and sweetness.
Flavors as good as the ingredients they’re made from and there are no artificial flavors or colors.
Made with only five simple ingredients, some of which real milk, cream and sugar.
What I love about Simply Pure® is that it doesn’t lose its flavor.
When you use Simply Pure, you don’t have to use extra creamer to get great flavor in your coffee.
What I love the most about Simply Pure® Creamers is that I can use them in light and delicious iced coffee recipes like this Vanilla Frappe Recipe.
This iced coffee drink is made with instant coffee, water, sugar (optional), Simply Pure® Vanilla Creamer and low fat milk (non dairy milk could be substituted).
I forgot to mention ice.
Five ingredients only + ice.
It is a nice and refreshing afternoon drink.
I love it!
I usually make it in the afternoon, after I come back home from running errands and I need something to sip on, while I get ready to make dinner or I work on something at home.
As I mentioned adding additional sweetener to this vanilla frappe (like 1 tsp of sugar per drink) is optional, because the creamer is already sweet.
But adding sugar actually helps to make the drink frothy.
I combine 2 tsp instant coffee, 1 tsp sugar and 1 tbsp cold water and use a milk frother (I have an attachment for my hand mixer, but you can just buy a frother) and beat with the frother for 2 minutes to get some foam.
Then I add ice to fill the glass and top with 1/3 cup Simply Pure® Vanilla Creamer and 1 cup low fat milk.
The drink is ready to enjoy! It comer together in less than 5 minutes.
