What I did this morning (or what you should have done last night!)
Want to know why I'm smiling this goofy smile?
It may or may not have to do with what I'm drinking...
Which may or may not be the best summer morning beverage I've made...
Which may or may not be a Fabulous Iced Cappuccino.
How would one make such a fantastic morning beverage? It's quite easy but takes a bit of preparation. Brew some coffee last night, preferably your favourite flavour. I absolutely love Chocolate Fantasy from the Bulk Barn, but you probably aren't as capable of buying that flavour as me, so you go ahead and choose your own. Okay, now that you've brewed it (last night), pour it into a couple ice cube trays. Four cups of prepared coffee exactly fills two trays. Since you did that last night, you're good to go today, right?
So now that you have frozen coffee cubes, get out your food processor or blender or whatever mixing device you want to use on icey coffee. Add equal parts milk and coffee cubes. Half a tray of coffee cubes is almost exactly 2/3 cup, so add 2/3 cup milk to that. Blend away until smooth and frothy. If you want to add sugar or International Delight, put it in your cup, then pour in the cappuccino mix. This tastes so much better than the corner store iced capp and there's much less sugar.
And it tastes so good in the morning... and the afternoon... and at night after a hot day.
