A Quick & Easy Morning Frappé

10 June 2016

I've been known to experiment with my NutriBullet. If you don't know, the NutriBullet calls itself a "nutrient extractor". In all honesty, I call it a blender. It tries to discourage you from using ingredients other than fresh or frozen fruit and vegetables (plus water), but it just lends itself so well to making smoothies and frappés that...why not?

As I said, I experiment a lot with my blender. I'll typically look around the kitchen for ingredients I can throw in rather than searching for recipes to follow (precisely like this one...). On one occasion, I'd been having an iced coffee every morning and was getting a little bored, so I decided to make a coffee frappé instead, but with a bit of a twist...

For my coffee banana frappé, I use

  • 1 + 1/4 cups of soy or almond milk
  • a shot of espresso (I like using a ristretto because it's more creamy, less watery)
  • 1 ripe banana
  • ice (depends on how icy you like your fraps)

and just blend as normal until smooth.

I know it might seem like a strange combination, but to me, it tastes similar to a coffee frappé you might order from a café, and you're still getting that caffeine hit — just with a hint of banana. I'm personally not a fan of using syrups to sweeten, so it's a good natural alternative. If you like your beverages on the sweeter side, use an extra ripe banana, or use two instead of one! The possibilities are endless! (Kind of).
