Secret Recipe Club: Greek Frappe Coffee

It's Secret Recipe Club reveal day!

I like my coffee dark =)

SRC is like a Secret Santa for food bloggers.  Each blogger is assigned a "secret" blog and given the task of recreating a recipe from that blog.  It's so much fun!  If you haven't taken part before, I highly suggest you do so!

This month I received Cheap Ethnic Eatz.  Evelyne, the author, allows one to discover different cuisines, flavors, ingredients, and cultures from all around the world.  Now who wouldn't love that?!

It was hard to choose a recipe, especially since this month has been c.r.a.z.y.  I haven't had time to do much cooking, so I had to choose something quick and fast.  I can't survive without my daily cup of coffee, so when I saw a twist on it with the Greek Frappe Coffee, I knew I had found my quick ethnic treat!  However, I'll be experimenting with Evelyne's Beet Green Burger in the future because it just sounds too good to pass up!

Recipe from Cheap Ethnic Eatz

2 teaspoons instant coffee
3/4 cup cold water
1 teaspoon sugar
milk, to taste
ice cubes

Place instant coffee, sugar, and about 1/4 cup water in a shaker.  Shake until mixture is thick and foamy.  Pour into a glass filled with ice cubes, along with the rest of the water and milk, to taste. 

This was definitely a great way to start my busy day!  It may be cold outside, but these iced coffees are still going to be happening!

  1. Gorgeous click! I don't drink much coffee, when I do once in a long while, black is always my choice.

  2. A simple but great recipe, now I am craving a frappe. Thanks fro the great comments. Yes that Beet Green Burger was something, let me know what you think.

  3. Love the simple (and cheap!) frappe recipe. Suppose to be cutting back on my caffeine intake but I'm sure these would be amazing de-caf as well. Awesome SRC pick :-)

  4. What an interesting way to make iced coffee! I love how simple it is.

  5. I've always wanted to try Secret Recipe I'm on a hunt.

  6. Gotta love a good coffee, great way to begin, middle and end a day in my book.

    If you haven't already, I'd love for you to check out my SRC entry: Thai Peanut Noodles with Chicken.


  7. Love that click, coffee is my favorite this one is sure in my do list.

  8. Great pick! I'm a total frappe addict, but I've never actually made them at home since we live a 10-minute walk from Greektown, which is chock-full of little cafes that make awesome frappes... tho after seeing this post, I'm feeling a little guilty about paying someone else to make them when I could easily do it myself!

  9. This sounds like just too much fun! The frappe looks great, and your photography is exquisite :-)

  10. I would like to invite you to join me at the Clever Chicks Blog Hop this week!

    I hope you can make it!
