Husband’s Invention: Espresso Frappe

How to make an Espresso Frappe

Today I’m sharing the perfect mid-morning pick-me-up with you, courtesy of my husband, Peter. Trust me, this will be your best friend after a night of no sleep with the bambinos. Say bonjourno to the espresso frappe!

This cold coffee is oh so tasty and importantly, guaranteed to give you a boost of energy.

It’s Peter’s go-to drink as a change from cappuccino and something he likes to drink all year round.

I like mine decaf for the most part as caffeine makes me (more) hyper and it’s become a hit with my friends and even their kids!

The best bit, switching your usual Starbucks for one of these bad boys will save you a fortune. Save up those pennies and you’ll sipping an espresso outside a Barcelona cafe in no time!

Argh, this post is actually making me miss my summery frappe drinking days as I spent many a summer slurping them in Cyprus. The Greeks love a frappe!

This is Peter’s hybrid, combining his love of both styles of coffee. Go make it below!
