The last Friday of August…
The days are getting shorter, the back-to-school buzz is building, and the farmer’s markets are filling up with the season’s harvest. Luckily today, as we celebrate the final instalment of the Frappuccino Friday fun, the city is a hot and humid 30 degrees (Celsius!). Soon (I’m sorry to say), we’ll be reaching for cardigans, comfy jeans and a creamy pumpkin latte.
It feels a little early to pop the first can of pumpkin puree and begin the blogger omnipresence of this fixedly fall ingredient. But this creamy, cooling frappuccino perfectly bridges that transition period between summer and fall when the city is still hot and steamy at midday but cool and breezy by sunset.
With today’s final flavour, we bid adieu to these frothy, frappuccino Fridays of summer. It has been a lot of fun to play through the menu with Nicole and concoct, healthy, vegan versions of Java Chip, Hazelnut, Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brulée, Green Tea Cream, Chai Crème, Double Chocolate Chip, Cinnamon Dolce, Toffee Coffee and Vanilla Bean. If you ever find yourself needing some frappuccino inspiration, I suggest you follow the Pinterest board to bookmark all these delicious creations.
Cheers to summer. Cheers to Fridays. Cheers to you. xo
