I am officially in love with espresso. If I could have a relationship with caffeine, it would probably be espresso. I do not own a fancy espresso machine- yet. I do have my eyes on this beauty from Smeg and Dolce Gabbana. Hand painted Italian appliances? Yes please.
I do own a moka pot though. That is how I get my espresso fix. Any Drinks recipe that includes espresso on my blog, is most likely made in my moka pot. My first tryst with them was when I got a single shot pot from Winners (TJ Maxx in USA). I experimented with it and finally got a hold of how to make espresso in a moka pot. I then invested in a Bialetti- they are made in Italy and absolutely exquisite.
This recipe requires refrigerated espresso shots. You will also need a blender that can blend ice. I used my Magic Bullet and it worked perfectly well for me.
Better get down to treating yourself with this before it gets any colder!
- 2 shots of espresso (43 ml in one shot)
- 2 scoops of french vanilla or vanilla bean ice-cream (one more scoop for topping off the Frappucino
- 1/4 cup condensed milk
- 1/2 cup ice
- 1 cup milk
Blend all the ingredients together, except for the scoop that you will top off the frappucino with. If you like a more intense taste of espresso, add half a shot more. If you want it a little sweeter, adding a little more condensed milk will definitely make it sweeter.
Enjoy this with a burger like I did!
