Creamy and delicious! Hot chocolate powder and milk blended together with ice for a cooling frappuccino-style drink.

So much quicker and cheaper than heading to your local drive-thru – plus no chance of a frappuccino-related accident taking place on the seat of your car. Trust me, milk is not a fun thing to try to get out of a car seat!!

Ideally you want to use sweetened hot chocolate powder to ensure your drink isn’t bitter, but you can replace with cocoa powder and a little sugar if you prefer.

My kids love this frozen hot chocolate with lots of whipped cream and chocolate curls or sprinkles (of course!).

You can buy ready-made chocolate curls, but if you want to make your own chocolate curls, simply use a vegetable peeler to shave a block of chocolate.

Here’s hoping for lots of hot weather so we can make plenty of these frozen hot chocolates!
