Cowboy Coffee Frapaccino [Life on the Ranch]

Hi sweets! I have a super duper fun post for you today. Today I'm sharing my favorite little morning treat with you: Cowboy Coffee Frappuccino. Can you say yum?! It tastes just like Starbucks--except, it's uber low calorie. To begin does everyone know what cowboy coffee is? Well, if not, you're going to learn! Cowboy Coffee is dark, rich coffee that is made without separating water from the grounds. Cowboys make it because it requires only minimum supplies. So all you need is coffee, water, and a cooking pot. I mean, cowboys don't have fancy machines out on the ranch. Ya right. So after the coffee is brewed, just let the coffee pot sit for a couple minutes, then pour a half a cup of cold water on top of it. That will make most of the coffee grounds sink to the bottom of the pot!

Now for the frappuccino, here is what I used: 

2 cups Brewed Cowboy Coffee
Ice
1 packet Stevia
Whipped Cream on top. Duh. BEST part. 

Put all the ingredients into a blender and viola! Deliciousness served. 

I thought it would be fun to include some of the photos of my life on the ranch too. This is how I grew up and what I come home to every chance I get! If you have any questions about the Frappuccino or my life on the ranch, ask me. I love answering your questions :).




Our little colt was giving us a little 'bucking' tantrum/ showoff session.

Double Trouble right here. This is Buck and Little Pup. I call her Kabookie. Everyone has their own name for her. Poor thing. haha.
Good Ol' Buck.
    

My mom. Yes. I know. She could pass for a sister.

 


Maybe I'll do a post this summer on how to saddle a horse! :)


Puttin' on the Bridle.
Oh hello. This is our little colt. She was the one bucking in the earlier photos.

Hope you've enjoyed this little glimpse into my life. And hope you love the coffee scrumptious drink!

    1. Oh yes. They are like $6! Craziness. You can spend so much on Starbucks! And oh my goodness! Only two times in your life?! That is so funny...well I have only been to NY once. So I'm not much of a suburban girl. We could learn a lot from each other. :) xo

  11. That cowboy coffee looks delicious, and I have to ask... is the whipped cream home made or from a can? It looks too good to be the spray kind!
    Gorgeous pics of the ranch, too; how fun to catch a glimpse of what you grew up with.
