7 ways to get buzzed on National Coffee Day

Grab your coffee mug and your party hat…it’s National Coffee Day!

OK. In general, I find food holidays to be a bit silly. I’m not going to throw a party for a hamburger patty or a floret of broccoli. However, National Coffee Day is a food holiday I’m happy to acknowledge. (Really, every day is coffee day around here.)

Here are a few delicious ways to get your coffee fix:

Coffee Frappe

Here’s an easy recipe for icy blended coffee flavored with real vanilla. Simply blend cold press coffee, light cream, pure maple syrup and vanilla with plenty of ice. The result is a delicious coffee frappe that’s easy on the pocketbook.

Vanilla Coffee Frappe Recipe
3/4 cup cold press coffee, chilled
2 tablespoons half and half (light cream)
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1/8 teaspoon pure vanilla
1 cup ice

In a blender container combine cold press coffee, half and half, maple syrup and vanilla. Cover and blend to combine. Add ice; cover and blend until smooth and slushy. Pour coffee frappe into a large glass.

Makes 1 large blended coffee drink (about 2 cups total)

Tip: Brew your own cold press coffee or buy some at your local coffee shop.
