If you’re a Parks And Rec fan like myself, you need no introduction to the concept of ‘Treat Yo’ Self’. If you’re not familiar, I’ll let Aziz Ansari and Retta explain the premise…
Can this only be a once a year event? I think no. In fact, I’d like to suggest a weekly ‘Treat Yo’Self Tuesday” where I’ll highlight a kitchen gadget, delicious bite or food related item that feels like an indulgence. This week’s “Treat” is a DIY Vanilla Frappuccino.
You don’t have to spend a lot to enjoy the good life. Take it up a notch by adding a shot of Bailey’s… Treat Yo’ Self honey!
4oz Bialetti brewed coffee or 2 shots espresso
1/3 cup plain almond milk, unsweetened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon agave nectar + more to taste
7 ice cubes
Optional garnish: freshly grated nutmeg
Foodie Note: If you garnish with fresh nutmeg use just a little; it is very potent. If adding Bailey’s go lighter on agave and add to taste.
Brew coffee; add all ingredients into blender except nutmeg. Blend for 1 minute or until all ingredients are smooth. Taste, adjusting sweetness and pour into glass. Garnish with nutmeg and a straw.
