National Frappe Day

Happy National Frappe Day! Yes, like I said: every day is special and today is Frappe Day in America (according to some calendar with all kinds of weird special days which I found online). I had no idea what a ‘Frappe’ was so I googled it. According to Dutch pages it is a Greek foamy coffee drink with ice (not talking about iced coffee). According to some English pages it is simply a beverage, usually a liqueur, poured over shaved ice. I have no idea why I thought it was so fantastic to choose a day to celebrate Frappe because I reálly don’t like coffee. I googled and googled and found this recipe for Matcha Frappe. This could work.

Ok, ok it’s not as pretty as as the picture I saw but that is probably because I didn’t have enough ice. If you look closely, you can see ice floating on top in the right glass (with the cat). That’s another thing; a Dutch site said that frappe is originally served in a tall glass. These were the only tall glasses we have (we also have one with a frog). I couldn’t find an ice cube tray so I decided to put some water in a jar. Yeahhh… that was stupid. It took me quite some time to get the ice out of the jar and then I had a problem smashing it. It was not a very succesful move. All I need to do for my next attempt is to figure out how to get the perfect crushed ice.

The taste is really, really good. It’s creamy and rich and a little bit sweet (not too sweet). I would definitely try this again some day but today I was like: F this sh*t. Anyway, if you like coffee or matcha, you will probably like frappe too.

Are you going to drink a frappe today? Care to share in a comment down below?

Don’t forget, tomorrow is Fluffernutter Day! YAY! If you want to know what I made for this day, come back tomorrow to find out!
