You know I love a good shortcut.

Whether it’s a can of biscuits, a box of cake mix or a package of fresh ravioli, ready-made ingredients are the cook’s and baker’s secret weapon for making great tasting meals and treats – in half the time, and with much less fuss.

Because “from scratch” is best, of course – but sometimes we don’t have the time or inclination to pull out every pot, pan and utensil in the kitchen.

Am I right?

Which is why I loved the challenge of creating a customized drink using Torani Real Cream Coffee Frappé Mix.

Torani Real Cream Coffee Frappé Mix is made with natural ingredients like pure cane sugar and real cream – with no preservatives. It’s easy to use (simply pour over ice and blend!), and has a rich, velvety texture – just liked you’d get at your favorite coffee shop!

Even better, when you combine it with Torani Syrups and Sauces, the flavor possibilities are endless!

I took a cue from the coffee flavor and decided to make a tiramisu shake!

I headed to Walmart to pick up my ingredients – right now, and through 11/24/17 you can save $2 on one (1) Real Cream Frappé Mix at Walmart (while supplies last)!

I incorporated all of the tiramisu ingredients – marscapone cheese, lady fingers and espresso – along with my Torani Real Cream Coffee Frappé Mix and a “generous” amount of vanilla ice cream, to create a thick and creamy shake that was positively delicious!

And it was as easy as pushing the button on my blender.

It was fun to take a traditional dessert and serve it up in a totally new way, and I could imagine so many different frappes and shakes that you could whip up. How about “S’mores”? “Cookies and Cream”? “Java Chip”?
