Greek Frappe (with a Nutribullet)

Anyone who has been to Greece will be familiar with the humble Frappe (often simply called Nescafe). Take a closer look at how the Frappe is made, and you will be surprised to learn that simply blitzing instant coffee with water miraculously creates an amazing frothy cold coffee. Optional sugar or sweetener is added BEFORE blitzing, and a dash of milk is added AFTER blending.

The Greeks use a special device to beat the water and coffee really fast, but your Nutribullet (or similar high-speed blender) works just as well.

NB! Just remember, it has to be instant coffee – the emulsifier added to instant coffee interacts with the water to form this incredible frothy texture. Also, add your sugar or sweetener before blitzing and your milk after blitzing for best results. Don’t add coco powder – it will disturb the chemistry and you won’t get the same results.

You can add cinnamon or vanilla extract before blitzing – this is delicious! You can also use flavoured instant coffees.

I really love this treat – it feels like I am drinking a milkshake! Such a great little pick me up.

Here is a fun little video to demonstrate the process:

    Thank you for this recipe! I was in Greece last year and I loved Frappe. I had no idea it was so easy to make at home with a blender. I love that I don’t even need ice for this recipe.
