This recipe is SO easy. Which will make you wonder why you have been spending so much $$ at Starbucks.
Easy enough that this coffee novice rocked the drink for her very picky husband and he loved it.
All you need is a blender, quality ingredients, and 10 minutes to whip up your very own, Starbucks worthy,
The first thing you will need to do is pick your coffee.
I decided to stick with a strong brewed dark coffee but an espresso would be just as good.
Another great tip is to add or subtract the amount of sugar used. I like my coffee on the sweeter side so the 2 tablespoons called for worked perfectly.
If you want to get super fancy you can top your cup with some whipped cream and a little cinnamon for that coffee house feel.
