DIY Starbucks Frappuccino!

If you're anything like me and not only love coffee, but often times find that you really need it, while realizing you're breaking the bank at Starbucks, well you're in for a treat! I've got a recipe for you that costs about fifty cents per "grande" frappuccino and boy does it taste uh-mazing! I made the drink in the photo above, I just put it in a Starbucks cup to trick my husband to see if he would notice that it wasn't a Starbucks. He didn't! Ahh, sweet success. Not to mention, it's HOT outside. What an amazing alternative to hot coffee in the mornings, without ever having to get dressed and drive to your local SB!

You will need:
- 2 Tbsp instant coffee granules (regular or decaf)
- 2 Tbsp fat free vanilla flavored coffee creamer (powdered)
- 1/2 cup fat free milk (I found that this makes it strong/bitter - but if you do 1/4 cup milk and 1/4 cup liquid vanilla creamer it's sweeter. Just my preference!)

- about ten ice cubes

Blend all of your ingredients together in a blender (add one or two more cubes of ice if it's too runny) and enjoy! How amazing is a 50 cent, homemade Starbucks drink from the comfort of your own home?
