I decided to put the TikTok frappé recipe to the test. Now it’s your turn.

These are not normal times. There are those who are thankfully only suffering from cabin fever yearning to go out on a sunny day and hang out with friends or go to a coffee shop to get work done. Some may feel restless and have an itch for creativity. Why not attempt to make the now trending, now renowned, sweet coffee blend with milk and espresso, (also known as a frappé)?

There is not one person stuck at home who doesn’t have a frappé in their hands. It originated in Thessaloniki, Greece. It was originally common among the Greeks. However to do this day, there have been many variations of it.

The most popular recipe surfaced on the social media platform ‘Tik Tok’. This simple-seeming recipe calls for instant espresso coffee, milk, sugar, and ice. I decided to put this recipe to the test to see if truly lives up to the hype.

This is a scrumptious invigorating cold beverage completely fit for a blistering summer day. For me, it resembles dessert in my espresso mug. For the most part, however, I am happy that I don’t need to get up and drive to a café to fulfill my coffee yearnings. The recipe also appears to be a lot healthier and easier to make than the traditional recipe requiring all the syrups and creams. Check out the video here or the recipe written below:
