Skinny and Delicious: Cinnamon Vanilla Frappe

Happy Friday! My weekend actually already started since my work is on a 80 hours in 9 days schedule for the summer. But if you need a little pick me up to get you through the afternoon, here's a great low-calorie option.

The base of this recipe is this awesome new concentrated cold brew coffee from Trader Joe's that I picked up after I saw it on the fabulous Run Eat Repeat's Instagram. This stuff is great just mixed with the milk of your choice, but I thought I'd kick it up a notch by using it to make a healthier version of the delicious iced blended coffee drinks that are so hard to resist in the summer
