Some coffee lovers will take their brew any way they can get it, from chocolate covered coffee beans to coffee-flavored ice cream. A vanilla frappuccino is a gourmet coffee drink made from ice cream, perfect for a refreshing pick-me-up on a hot day.
Things You'll Need
- Whole vanilla beans
- Auto-drip coffee pot
- Strong coffee
- French vanilla ice cream
- Heavy duty blender
- Ice cubes
- Tall glass
- Whip cream
Place a whole vanilla bean in the bottom of your coffee pot and brew yourself a pot of strong coffee. If you are making more than 2 or 3 cups of coffee, add a second bean. Place the pot of coffee in the refrigerator to chill before you make your vanilla frappuccino. If you pour the coffee into another container, make sure you transfer the vanilla beans.
Scoop a hearty helping of French vanilla ice cream into a heavy duty blender and top with about 4 or 5 large ice cubes.
Add as much coffee as you like to get the perfect flavor, straining the vanilla beans. For an added touch, add chocolate cookies, chocolate covered coffee beans or a few chunks of white chocolate.
Blend your vanilla frappuccino until smooth and then pour into a tall glass. Top with a dollop of whip cream and enjoy.
