This recipe was born during the months leading up to my leaving a bad marriage. My emotions churned constantly back then and eating was just too difficult. I had no desire to eat. Planning meals had always been a joy to me, but during the last year of my marriage nothing was appealing. I lost weight rapidly: fifty pounds in six months. I knew I needed to eat, but chewing took too much energy. So, this shake saved me, so to speak. I still have it every morning.
1/2 cup skim milk
3 tablespoons Maxwell House International French Vanilla Instant Coffee
3 tablespoons Cool Whip (frozen)
1 small banana
2 International Delight French Vanilla Creamer shots (you know, the little blue cups)
1 cup of ice
Put all of the above ingredients in a blender and mix till smoothe and thick. The longer it’s blended the smoother it gets. Pour in a big tall glass. If you wish to top it with more Cool Whip and caramel sauce, go ahead. This coffee shake tastes much like those frappe things from the fast food places. Enjoy.
