I am craving an Iced Vanilla Blended from Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. Sadly, there are no franchises nearby--in fact none in Illinois!--and no, Starbuck's Frappuccino is not the same! (The closest I've come locally is my nearby Border's/Seattle's Best Iced Vanilla Latte.)
So here is my question/plea. Can anyone provide a recipe that I can follow at home to closely approximate the real deal? I would consider ordering CB&TL's French Deluxe Vanilla powder, but with shipping it's really a bit ridiculous. Still, if that's what it takes...
I guess I would need an espresso machine as well. Damn. I don't think this is going to happen.
Here's where I'd rather be today. Strolling down the Promenade and sipping a Blended, of course. Current temperature on the Prairie: 12°F (feels like -6). Double damn.
