Starbucks Frappuccino - for cheap!

Friday, July 12, 2013

Starbucks Frappucinos: $1.50 to $2.50 each
My Frappucinos in their bottles: $0.35-.40 each

Plus the big benefits of re-using the bottles which is better than recycling.  I never felt comfortable wasting those bottles.

And they are lower calorie and don't have preservatives.

Per Bottle:
1 cup skim milk
2 tablespoons creamer (I use Great Value Brand creme de brulee)
1 rounded teaspoon instant coffee (a good brand) dissolved into
2 tablespoons hot water
1 teaspoon sugar or equivalent of sweetner

I drink three of these a day, so I make nine at a time.  It doesn't take long at all.  I make them at night and put them high in the fridge so they are super cold.

 Recycle the bottles you have or use mason jars.

Adjust the ingredients to your liking.
 
 For one dozen bottles, I use about 10-12 cups skim milk, four heaping tablespoons instant coffee, 1.5 cups hot water, 24 tablespoons refrigerated creamer, 3 packets of sweetener (or if sugar use more.)

 
 Two tablespoons creamer in each bottle of Milk, sweet cream flavor is really good.
 Two tablespoons water per bottle, for a dozen I used 1.5 cups heated for 2 minutes.
 Use your choice of sweetener, sugar, stevia, honey...


 After the ingredients are added to the water, it will make enough to put in about 2 tablespoons, plus 1 teaspoon of the coffee and sweetener mixture.

This helps me greatly in that I feel like I am conserving resources by reusing those great little bottles, I know what I am drinking and the preservatives are few to none, and I'm not spending $4.50 per day on coffee.
