Summer in the mid-west is especially fun for Paul and I because we are cooped up indoors so much of the long winter. We anxiously wait for the short days and frozen months to go by until we can feel the warm sun and enjoy the fresh air. But then it gets really hot and we crave frozen treats to cool us down. Isn’t it funny how the weather here keeps us experiencing the hot and cold extremes year round?
We take pride in our yard and work to make it look pretty and well kept. I don’t “love” gardening, but being outdoors with family doesn’t really feel like a chore when we are working together and enjoying each other’s company.
Part of our yard care routine is Paul blowing out the gutters to keep them free of debris from the storms. With all the storms we have they get clogged quickly and have to be cleaned out regularly to keep the rain water flowing correctly.
In our area we get hot days where the humidity builds up and then thunderstorms break through. It lowers the temperatures a little, but it is still in the 80’s & 90’s here and it feels hot. My homemade mint frappe recipe just screams refreshment and summer fun! I will show you how to make the mintiest, creamiest frappe ever.
Minty Cream Frappe
What you need:
- your favorite coffee (chilled)
- International Delight® French Vanilla Gourmet Coffee Creamer
- International Delight® Caramel Macchiato Gourmet Coffee Creamer
- Ice Cubes
- Peppermint Extract
- sprigs of fresh mint
How to Make:
- Make a pot of your favorite coffee and let it cool off for about an hour.
- Pour the coffee into an ice cube tray to freeze.
TIP: I use these creamers and whipped topping everyday in my coffee, so they are always on hand. I also keep a bag of frozen coffee cubes in the freezer so we can make the frappes whenever we crave them.
How to Make:
- Put 6 coffee ice cubes in a blender
- 10 ice cubes
- 1 & 1/2 cups of International Delight French Vanilla Gourmet Coffee Creamer
- 3/4 cup International Delight Caramel Macchiato Gourmet Coffee Creamer
- 1 & 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract
- 1/2 cup milk to the blender.
- Blend until thick and smooth.
- Pour into chilled mugs.
- Add a delicious dollop of Reddi-wip® Extra Creamy to the top of your frappe.
- Garnish with a sprig of mint.
- Enjoy immediately.
TIP: Make sure to buy Reddi-wip® because real dairy cream is the #1 ingredients. Reddi-wip® is made from cows not treated with artificial growth hormone and has no artificial flavors or sweeteners.
I got my Reddi-wip at Walmart in the dairy section near the International Delights creamers! They also had a display near the dairy section and all my ingredients were (as usual) priced very low at Walmart.
Enjoy the fantastic flavors, creamy richness and chilling refreshment of this amazing frappe.
After working in the yard, we cleaned ourselves up and spent some time hanging out on the porch. A Minty Cream Frappe is definitely a treat well deserved after working together to make our home and yard look so nice. A neighbor couple saw chilling on the porch with our Minty Cream Frappes and said “we like how you party” as they walked by. We held up our glasses to cheers them and offered them a creamy, ice cold frappe!
Using International Delight® creamers and Reddi-wip® are a sweet way to turn your daily cup of coffee into a delicious treat to chill out and have fun in the summer!

As long as the mint is over powering I am all in. Nothing sounds better on a hot summer day.
How amazingly refreshing – this frappe looks absolutely delicious! Love the fact that it’s minty, it totally adds in that extra dose of refreshness.
My husband would love this! I’m always trying to find creative ways to give him coffee without it being hot. Where I live it is so hot in the summer and coffee just doesn’t sound good.
Maybe this is the way I can get my husband to work on our yard! Frappes it is! We totally need to do some serious gardening and we’ve been putting it off because it’s so hot out. #client
That looks really good to me! I love anything frozen in the summer when it is hot. This would be a great treat!
Ooo yum. I’d give this a try. I love minty drinks and this would be fabulous in this Texas heat.
Frappes are pretty much the only way I enjoy drinking coffee. This one sounds super tasty and refreshing.
This sounds so refreshing. I love frappes but the coffee shop ones are too high calorie.
Looks like such a wonderful summer treat. I love how you guys are kicking back with your frappes after all the hard work you put in to your house! This would be a lovely reward.
As one midwesterner to another. I think this looks wonderful! Such a great summer treat!

Oooh, I love a good homemade coffee drink . It saves so much money over buying them at the store. I agree with you- I enjoy working on the yard as a family, but it sure is a lot of work!
That looks super refreshing and delicious. We don’t do a ton of yardwork, but we do play a lot outside, so this would be perfect!

I like this and it would something I could really use one right now. I will have to try to make get those sorbetes.
I love mint everything so this would be a great treat for me on my cheat days.
Frappes are so refreshing in the summer! This is such a creative recipe and I just love minty drinks in the summertime!
How refreshing this Minty Frappe is? Though am not so much on anything with mint, but I like give it a shot.
I bet this so refreshing after a hot summer day of yard work. I just saw these at the grocery store and want to pick up a bottle for us to try.
Super easy to make and looks so delicious. Can’t wait to try it.
