Several years ago, my husband and I owned a bookstore and coffee shop. We sold Big Train products and I’m still lovin’ them today.
This week I bought more of the Blended Ice Coffee (also called Ice Rage). It’s similar to a Frappuccino and comes in tons of delicious flavors. Java Chip is my favoritest because it has little chocolate chips in it, but I also like the No Sugar Added Mocha and the Chocolate Peanut Butter. There are also Lite and Low Carb versions of some of the flavors.
Blend the mix with water and ice then top with whipped cream or any of your favorite garnishes and you have the perfect drink. You are now a professional barista and qualified to work at any coffee shop in America. Well, almost.
There are other drinks, including hot drinks, that this mix makes and the recipes are on the package. Does it get any easier? Ok, I guess Big Train could make it easier if they included someone to make it for you and deliver it pool-side. Maybe they’ll think about that.
You can purchase single-serving packets so you can try all the yummy flavors. These packets cost about a $1 each.
I buy the 3.5 pound bag for about $32 (including shipping) and it makes 20 16oz. drinks. That’s $1.60 per drink. If you bought the same drink at a coffee shop it would cost at least $3.
Ok, that was way more math than a girl needs to do in one sitting.
This is great to serve at a summer party. All your friends will marvel at your awesome barista-ness. If you try it, let me know what you think. Or, if you know of something better, please let me know. I love finding new goodies to try.
*I don’t get anything for linking to this vendor; it’s where I purchase my products. You can google Big Train and find other sellers but many do not sell directly to the public.
