Say what, what?
Alright, let me back up.
Today I wanted a treat. Like a really good delicious bad to the bone treat and my kitchen was looking barren save for the one xl size brownie still sitting lonely in the pan. Far be it for me to waste a brownie, am I right? But said brownie was about 4 days old and while still soft and perfect, needed a little “ump” to regenerate it from pow to WOW.
Which is my fancy way of saying that I added ice cream, whipped cream, strawberries and sugar on top.
Now this morning we had been running through Target and I had myself an iced coffee and still had a little left. Here is what I did with it.
I made Starbucks flavored whipped cream.
STARBUCKS WHIPPED CREAM, Y’ALL!
- Take 1 cup whipping cream
- 2 tbls powdered sugar
- 2 tbls Starbucks coffee
1) Put into mixing stand on med-high and monitor over the next 5-7 minutes. It will whip itself into amazing, AMAZING whipped cream that tastes pretty much like Starbucks heaven.
2) Now take a brownie, cake, whatever you can find to be the base and add Starbucks Vanilla Frappuccino or Mocha Fappucchino (or a flavor you personally love) on top and smother in your newly made Starbucks whipped cream.
3) Add strawberries so you can tell people it’s “healthy”.
And the extra whipped cream you have staring at you longingly?
Put it with a side of strawberries for a caffeine filled rush that isn’t totally guilt ridden. I dusted mine with a little cocoa.
Now you are asking me…how do I make the butter? I am SO here for the butter.
How to make Starbucks Flavored Butter!
Easy Peasy. Without cleaning out your mixer ( I mean remove your whipped cream, but you don’t have to bother to wash the bowl), just add another cup of whipping cream and more coffee, turn your mixer on high and let it run about 5 minutes.
It will go through stages, including your whipped cream stage and then move on to butter. The butter will start out chunky and then start to form together.
It’s quite entertaining to watch.
Once its the consistency you want, pour out the butter milk and collect the butter for the fridge. I put mine in a bowl and used ice water to “rinse” it off and get out remaining buttermilk. It has just a hint of coffee to it, which is perfect for breakfast muffins, toast, or let’s be honest, anything at all.
