Iced cappucino at home??

I have these General Foods International coffes packets to make cappucino in a glass of milk. You can add ice. I had an iced cappucino from Tim Horton's and paid $2.59 or something like that. I was thinking about putting a packet in the blender with crushed ice to see what kind of drink I would get. Anyone have a suggestion? Thanks, Amy

I add my left over dark roast coffee to the blender with a litle cocoa and whipping cream and some ice. It makes a wonderful iced coffee. Leave out the ice if you just want a coffee drink and add it if yu want when it is in the glass. The drink keeps well in the blender in the fridge and I just give it a whirl when I want a glass.

I hope someone has Marlen's cappucino mix recipe. Unable to connect to her link.

I tried some Int'l Coffee mix, mixed as directed, and then put into the blender w/ice. Awful. It had no substance, and was very, very weak. IF I should do that again, I would definitely add more milk and much more of the powdered mix. (That could get awfully expensive, though.)

Here's a tip for iced coffee or iced cappuccino...
Use up left-over coffee (make sure its at room temperature or cooler) & make coffee ice cubes which keeps those iced drinks from tasting like water.

One of the best, I think, is use dark brewed coffee and sweetened condensed milk with crushed ice.

Here's a good one - I've been saving the coffee that's left in the coffeemaker in the morning in a pitcher in the fridge to make these in the afternoon :-) They would be even better with ice cubes made from leftover coffee...
