My husband and I got engaged in the Greek islands and I learned to like lots of different foods there. One of my favorites was the Frappe. It is a really simple and refreshing drink, you probably have the ingredients in your cabinets right now. That is me circa 1995, pre-weight gain. I'm pretty sure I didn't have a care in the world when this photo was taken. (The Husband looks like a teenager!)
Instant Coffee 2 tsp (I used Foldgers instant decaf)
Stevia Sweeteners - to taste (I use 1 packet of Sun Crystals)
Your favorite sweetener, coffee, two fingers of water (just a little in the bottom of the cup). Use a shaker (martini shaker, cup with a cover) and shake until it gets all frothy. Pour into a glass filled with almost with ice. Top off with the cold water and a little cream. Officially, you are supposed to drink it with a straw and mix and swirl as you drink!
If it tastes bitter, try adding more water/cream before adding more sweetener. Depending on how well yours frothed up, the coffee can get pretty concentrated.
