The other day the kids and I were heading out to the pool. As I was wrestling to get their bathing suits on (um, and mine lol), running around to gather towels and googles, and sunscreen, I heard a blender. I didn’t think much of it.
Right as we were about to walk out the door, my husband handed me a frozen slushy iced coffee situation that made me smile from ear to ear.
It was a treat. And I love treats.
Back in the day I would get a caramel iced latte on the reg from Dunkin Donuts. I loved the sweetness. I loved the whip cream. I loved the caramel sauce and the salt they sprinkled on top. It was rich, and I definitely shouldn’t have been drinking them at the rate I was drinking them, but alas… that was my life at the time.
When Jaryd handed me the slushy iced latte I was instantly taken aback to my days of Dunkin pick me ups and I loved every second. Because it’s hot outside and EVERYONE needs a little something something to put a smile on their face. I knew you chicks needed this recipe too.
Best part? You blend everything up and it takes like 2 minutes.Print
