coffee fix

I have a special place in my heart for frappuccinos. If I had my way, I'd have a Vanilla Starbucks Frappuccino EVERY day, maybe even twice a day. But that would get pretty expensive... I'm thinking maybe I should just MAKE these Mason Jar Frappaccinos. Looks super easy, and I do have the jars!

Mason Jar Frappaccino by Pioneer Woman on Tasty Kitchen
- ¾ cups Brewed Strong Coffee, Room Temperature
- ¾ cups Milk
- 1 package Sweetener, A Single Serve Packet, Your Choice
- 2 Tablespoons Chocolate Syrup
- 2 Tablespoons Liquid Coffee Creamer, Your Flavor Of Choice
- 3 whole Ice Cubes

Preparation Instructions
In a 16 oz. Mason jar, put all your ingredients followed with the ice cubes. Put the lid and ring on and shake, shake, shake!

Taste it. Does it need a little more sweetener?
I don’t like mine horribly sweet, so I stick with one packet of Splenda. The creamer and chocolate syrup add the rest of the sugar to sweeten.

As for the creamer, I used Coffeemate Italian Sweet Cream. It’s nondescript, sweet and creamy and lets the coffee and chocolate shine through.
But, if you like hazelnut or coconut cream, go for it!

At this point, you can drink it right out of the jar or pour it over crushed ice and top with whipped cream and drizzle more chocolate for an authentic coffee house experience.
