Chocolate Brownie Coffee Frappe 2

There’s something about a cold blended coffee drink, isn’t there? Ever since I first sipped one — probably 15 years ago — I’ve been wild for them. They just make hot summer days a little brighter … don’t they? Back when I worked in New York, my morning route to work would wind through streets so I could pop into my favorite coffee shop each day. And you can bet that it wasn’t a cheap route either. Because, of course, that’s the downside — blended coffee drinks can be pretty darn pricy.

These days, I don’t drop in the coffee shop anywhere near as often. But that doesn’t mean I’ve given up my blended coffee drinks. Especially not when you can make delicious ones at home with just a few ingredients in a few seconds for pennies.

As long as you have a blender and some ice, you’ve got the basics covered. Of course, you need coffee and something creamy (and perhaps something week …) to make it all work though. I mean, what’s a blended coffee drink without the coffee, right? Or the cream for that matter …

International Delight has a few new creamers that are perfect for this. They are based on ice cream flavors (how fun is that?!?): Cold Stone Creamery™ Hot for Cookie™, Cold Stone Creamery™ Founder’s Favorite™ and Cold Stone Creamery™ Churro Caramel.

ID Cold Stone Founders Favorite

The Cold Stone Creamery™ Founder’s Favorite™ is totally up my husband’s alley — it has all the flavors of a brownie sundae, which is perfect for transforming coffee into a magical blended coffee drink (complete with whipped cream and crushed chocolate cookies, natch).

And making this? Couldn’t be simpler. Toss the ice, coffee and creamer in a blender and blend. Top with creamy, cookie goodness. Drink it down. See? Easy peasy.
