My parents are huge coffee drinkers. While I love the smell of coffee, I couldn't quite get over the taste. My first cup of coffee was at my aunt and uncles house (from what I can remember) and was loaded with sugar and creamer. I still wasn't impressed with the taste.

Then came along Starbucks...

As soon as I had my first frappuccino, I knew I was addicted! As you know, Starbucks can get quite expensive so I really wanted a cheaper alternative.

And Keurig was born!

I was so excited to receive a Keurig from my parents as a gift for Christmas! I tried several different coffee pods and finally found a flavor that I loved... Sweet and Creamy by Donut Shop. But, I still had to add more creamer to get the taste I wanted. Plus, they eventually stopped carrying these pods in my local grocery stores.

I was starting to get a bit discouraged when I spotted bottled Starbucks frappuccinos at a local store. Oh my goodness! I was in love all over again! Then, I soon realized... this too was getting a bit expensive.

A few years later my hubby and I were shopping at Sam's and I spotted this beauty!

Cappuccino Mix

All my coffee dreams came true! This mix has it all! It can be a cappuccino, an iced coffee or a frozen coffee. Perfect to fit my mood for the day! Plus, it's super affordable and it lasts quite a while.

This mix can be made using water or milk. I prefer milk for a creamer texture. I would like to try Almond milk and see if it affects the flavor.

For an Iced Coffee, I heat up a bit of milk in the microwave, stir in a scoop of the mix and pour over ice. Simple!

It ends up looking like this...

Iced Coffee

For a Frappuccino, I put a bit of ice in my NutriBullet, pour in a bit of milk, add in a couple scoops of the mix and blend.

It tastes great hot as well! All the instructions for making hot, iced and frozen are right on the label.

If you don't have a local Sam's club, I've also purchased this mix from Walmart and it's available on Amazon as well.

Have you tried making your own iced coffee or frappuccino's at home?
