Today I am excited to blog about one of my favorite topics: food! Yum! I love good, yummy, delicious yet simple to prepare food! And today I am going to show you one of my new favorite drinks that I discovered completely by accident! See, I was writing a blog post about a DIY Colored Pencil Coaster and I realized that I needed a drink to place on my coaster for the photo shoot. So I looked in my cupboard and didn't have many options!
But I did have a huge container of hot cocoa and I decided, instead of making it hot, that I would make it into a delicious Starbucks-inspired frappuccino-type drink (without the coffee of course)! It turned out absolutely amazing and I have made it several times since! It is the perfect summer drink-treat and I admittedly, drink it all too often! So here is my version of Frozen Hot Chocolate!
Frozen Hot Chocolate
- 1 cup cold milk
- 2 tbs of your favorite hot cocoa mix (or amount according to hot cocoa directions)
- 4-6 ice cubes
- whipped cream (optional)
- chocolate jimmies (optional)
Oh there aren't really directions! You just throw it all in a blender for a few minutes until it turns into a smooth delicious chocolate shake!
I love mine topped with whipped cream and a few sprinkles, but that is completely optional of course!
If you love tasty drinks as much as I do, be sure to also check out my Vanilla Steamer (a Starbuck's knock-off)! It's a great winter drink.
Looks delicious! My boys would love this!
This would be perfect for our hot fall days! Will have to remember to make some with my daughter this weekend!
This looks really good. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks so much Debbie!
I laughed when I got to the "there are no instructions" bit. Because really, all you do is throw it in and make a delicious treat. Excited to try, thanks for the write up!
Haha! I am glad you got a laugh Emily!! It really was just that simple 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by!
Yummmmm! This looks so delicious! I can't wait to try it! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
