Mint Cookies 'N Cream Frappe - and a Coffee-mate Giveaway!
March 9, 2014
A chilled coffee smoothie with Coffee-mate creamer, mint sandwiches cookies, and chocolate syrup - skip the drive thru!
It's funny, Paul and I get stuck on the same creamer flavor for a while. We were on Irish Cream for a while, then Hazelnut. Amaretto was our most recent obsession, it's such a classic flavor! I remember when the only flavors were Irish Cream, Amaretto, and French Vanilla. It's SO crazy the amount of flavors you can get now! Our flavor preferences may change from time to time, but I have to say, it's always been Coffee-mate in this house!
I don't know about you, but I like my coffee to taste like dessert. My family makes fun of me, God forbid they accidentally grab a swig from my mug - boy do I hear about it! What can I say, I love things sweet. If you're like me, Coffee-mate's new Extra Sweet & Creamy creamer is PERFECT! It gives a really balanced creaminess to the coffee, with the right level of sweet for my taste.
Of course, with the temperatures (hopefully) getting warmer, I was dying to try this new flavor in a frappe - SO GOOD! Don't waste money going through the drive-through, there's no need when you can make something at home that tastes even better! Of course the mint flavor goes perfectly this time of year with St. Patrick's day - what a great treat to celebrate this fun holiday.
Place one mint chocolate sandwich cookie in a ziploc bag and crush into fine crumbs, set aside. Pour coffee, creamer, chocolate syrup, remaining 3 cookies, chocolate chips, and ice in a blender. Pulse until smooth. Pour into a tall glass or travel cup. Top with whipped cream and reserved cookie crumbs.
I'll take a tall one of these in my travel cup ready for a day full of yard sales - can't wait! Would you like to try the new Coffee-mate Extra Sweet & Creamy flavor for yourself? Of course you would! Enter to win a Coffee-mate prize pack of 5 free coupons good for full-size Coffee-mate products!
