Day 81 : Tiramisu Frappe

Somehow I managed to mess up my back yesterday.  Since the moment I got out of bed this morning I have been pretty much unable to move without pain, and after a day of having to chase after my kids anyway because they don’t care about my excuses, I was not up for standing around the kitchen all night to make dinner.  We had pizza instead, but in the spirit of not missing a day of my blog I decided to make a frappe.  It has been a while since I have tried one of the recipes that came with the frappe machine, and since I am in pain I decided to go all out and do the adult version.

Normally I make my frappes with ice cream or frozen yogurt, instead of ice to get a creamy texture, but the heavy cream does just as well.  Of course it’s far from figure friendly, and when using frozen yogurt I can go with fat free…. but after a day like today I don’t really care lol.  I have to say, this was SOOOOOO good, and really did taste like tiramisu!

Just for some fun, I made a very quick chocolate decoration to put on top, but since I was in a bit of a hurry and not moving all that well I didn’t get it all off the paper in one piece.  There should have been more steam lines coming from the middle.  As you can see I also slightly melted the edge of the handle…. but you get the idea lol.  My son told me it was amazing anyway!
