Pistachio Frappe

Fantastic, refreshing, cruelly tasty. A perfect match of coffee + ice creams. Worth trying!
Recipe is my own idea.

  • 1-2 teaspoons of favourite instant coffee*
  • 1-3 ice cream scoops of pistachio ice cream
  • 1-2 drops of vanilla extract or 1-2 teaspoons of vanilla syrup

Optional ingredients:
  • 1-2 teaspoons of sugar

  • a few pistachios, grounded, to sprinkle the top
  • another ice cream scoop of pistachio ice cream
  • chocolate, vanilla or pistachio syrup/mousse

*This frappe can be prepared with ground coffee in a coffee maker, but then, it is necessary to take only the essence of the coffee - espresso. It is possible to use double espresso. 

  1. Prepare blender and its cube cutter.
  2. While using instant coffee, put it in the cube cutter with pistachio ice cream, vanilla and - optionally - sugar and mix till smooth or even till the natural foam appears.
  3. Pour it into a latte glass.
  4. Decorate.
  5. Bon Appetit! :)
  1. While using ground coffee - prepare it, pour it (for instance) to a small coffee pot, cool down and put in the freezer for max. 20 minutes.
  2. Keep checking - it cannot totally freeze. Take it out from the freezer, put in a cube cutter with other ingredients and blend till smooth or till the natural foam appears.
  3. Decorate.
  4. Bon Appetit! :)
