In about as much time as it takes to stand in line at Starbucks and order one of their Grande Light Frappuccinos, you can make one yourself at home and save about $4.00. Just try this Frozen Blended Cappuccino Recipe and enjoy the creamy, coffee flavored goodness that you know and love. Each DIY Frappuccino has just 2 Points + and tastes fantastic. I found that the French Vanilla flavored creamer was sweet enough for me, but feel free to add in a Splenda or two if you want it really sweet. Quick and easy to make, it’s a fantastic low calorie frozen blended coffee drink recipe for any Weight Watcher. And best of all – no fancy espresso machine or name misspelling barista required. Enjoy!
