The days of overspending on a sugary, fattening frozen coffee drink are over.
Ingredients shot! Imitation vanilla and regular half and half work just as well as the organic kind.
A homemade frapp works much better for a student budget than the kind from Starbucks since it costs way less per drink compared to the $3.75 for a small one. More importantly, this Healthy-cino has 74 calories and 3.2 carbs compared to the store bought version, which contains 200 calories and 42 carbs. In other words, you can be skinnier and richer drinking these bad boys. Ohhhhhh, yeah!
I’m sipping my Homemade Coffee-cino out of a Starbucks cup I washed out and saved. You can see it next to my stack of textbooks above. This semester has been crazier than usual with a full load of science classes. So many electric circuits to resolve, so many equilibrium concentrations to solve for, so little time to cook! I appreciate your comments and donations, and will answer questions when I can. Time to hit the books again…
