Iced Coffee Frappe

My role as a parent has changed in the past few months, it’s a new era for my hubby and I.  Our twins, aged 14 and a very important half, have both started their first job, which has taken ‘mum’s taxi’ to a whole new level.  My son started at McDonalds 2 months ago.  He works one afternoon during the week and one day on the weekend and absolutely loves it. His sister just last week had her first shift at the same McDonalds too.  I am so proud of them for making this step.

Last week we had a super hot day (temps raised to 35 degrees around 10am) here on the Gold Coast, I was really wanting a coffee, but the thought of a hot drink wasn’t desirable.  Mr 14 saw my dilemma and knows how much I love my coffee and offered to make me an Ice Coffee Frappe, one of McDonalds McCafe specialities!

Your son is a very sweet young man, and he knows how to look after his mum. Such a keeper! It’s great to see other people’s teens being amazing young people! And, gee I wish I liked coffee. My husband is a coffee roaster & wholesaler so good coffee is a mere “hey honey…” away. But I just don’t like it ?? I wonder if there is an iced tea latte-ish kind of thing around?

I have always loved an iced coffee and during the warmer months (admittedly not alot of them in Tassie) always use my espresso machine to make up a batch of coffee ice cubes. Mix the coffee with a little sugar, put into ice cube trays or sometimes I use a small muffin tin and then when I want an iced coffee or my visitors do, I just put the coffee ice cube straight in to the blender with some milk and ice cream! I also enjoy a black iced coffee (known as an Americano) and will mix the coffee cube with a couple of plain ice cubes and some cold water in the blender.
