Hot Brazilian Coffee & Brazilian Frappuccino

Gallery

The boyfriend has returned from Texas, and we’re in the midst of preparations for heading back to school next week. So for the next two weeks or so, I may not get to post as often as I would like. To make up for this, this post will be AWESOME.

I found a recipe for Brazilian coffee and adapted it to make enough for 2-3 people. It’s quick and simple and the end result is delicious–it’s sweet and a little spicy. I’ve included both the hot and cold version of the drink here, so no matter what climate you’re in you can enjoy this drink!

Brazilian Coffee

  • ¾ cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 ½ cups water
  • 2/3 cup strong brewed coffee
  • 2 ½ tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • Whipped cream (optional)

Combine the coffee, sweetened condensed milk, and water in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Slowly stir in the cocoa, salt, and cinnamon. Continue stirring constantly until coffee is thoroughly heated but not boiling. Enjoy hot with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon, or refrigerate in a sealed container for 2 hours for use in a Brazilian Frappuccino.

Brazilian Frappuccino

  • 1 cup chilled Brazilian coffee (see above)
  • 1 cup ice
  • Chocolate syrup, whipped cream (optional)
Pour chilled Brazilian coffee into blender and add ice. Blend on high until ice is crushed. Taste–if the drink isn’t thick enough, add a few more ice cubes (don’t overdo it or you’ll water down the drink too much!) Enjoy with whipped cream, a drizzle of chocolate syrup, and a sprinkle of cinnamon on top.
