While it’s tempting to pop into the neighborhood coffee shop or fro-yo spot for a cool treat when the weather heats up, it’s easier (and definitely healthier) to head to your own kitchen. All it takes is a little prep work. Thicken things up by adding the ingredients into a blender for your own version of a frappuccino. You can even use coconut milk and a few mint leaves for a burst of flavor.
