Banana and vanilla are best friends in this incredibly satisfying, but low-calorie do-it-yourself frappe. A ripe frozen banana does the trick to give this frappe a creamy thick consistency. The Coffee-mate Classic Vanilla creamer is the perfect compliment to the strong cold-brew and adds a delightful balanced flavor to the frappuccino, making it anything but dull. Believe me, there’s nothing boring about Classic Vanilla Coffee-mate creamer!
Not only is this Banilla Frappuccino totally addicting, it’s super quick and easy to make. You can probably have this do-it-yourself frappe made quicker than your local coffee shop and it’s waaaaay cheaper! I know that you’ve made your own cold-brew and if you haven’t, you can always use store-bought… but you so should try making your own.
Can you tell I’m on a bit of a coffee kick? Okay… I know, I know… when am I not on a coffee kick? 🙂
So anyway, grab your cold-brew, a frozen nanner, some almond milk, a little sweetener (if you like) and don’t forget the Coffee-mate Classic Vanilla Creamer. Simply blend all of these ingredients along with a little ice for a frosty, decadent, yummy treat.
The touch of Classic Vanilla Creamer is just what this frappe needs to give it an indulgent flavor and still keep the calories lower than your average coffee shop frappe. It also includes a banana- so you could actually say this frappuccino’s pretty darn nutritious. I’ve actually thought about adding a little spinach to it and making it breakfast! I’ll letcha know how that goes! 😉
- 1 cup cold-brew coffee
- 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk any milk will work
- 2 tablespoons classic vanilla Coffee-mate creamer
- 1 small ripe frozen banana It's not mandatory that the banana be frozen, but it will have a better consistency
- 1-2 Stevia packets or other preferred sweetener I use 1 1/2 Stevia packets
- 1/2-1 cup ice cubes depending on how slushy you like your frappes
- Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Add ice as needed for desired consistency. Feel free to add additional creamer, if you prefer a creamier frappe.
*I didn't measure this after it was made, but I would say it's about a venti size by Starbucks measurement.
