Cafe Frappe

At our resort in Crete as well as all over the island, Cafe Frappes were served throughout the day. My parents and Jean and I loved these cool whipped coffee drinks and even Zoe-Pascale begged us to make her a coffee-milk version.

Different than Starbucks, high-calorie Frappe, this recipe is lower in calorie and something you can easily make at home.

First, you need to buy a Frappe machine (which Mom bought upon arriving home at Best Buy).


Mix the following in a tall glass:

  • 1 teaspoon of nescafe (somehow it needs to be an instant powder for it to work properly)
  • About 1-2 tablespoons of cold water (you'll know if it is too much as it will splatter all over)
  • sugar or splenda to taste
  • mix in Frappe machine until it is all foamy
  • Add more water (almost to the top
  • Add milk (if you like milk in your coffee)
  • Add ice cubes

Lay back and feel the warm ocean breeze and enjoy
