If you're looking for something to do today then I hope you're thirsty because it's National Frappe Day!  Sip it slowly and savor the goodness!  Let's get right into celebrating National Frappe Day!

WHY IS THIS A HOLIDAY?  

Well, everyone gets thirsty and water gets a bit boring at times. So people like to mix things into beverages and come up with tasty creations that will make their taste buds dance about. But when it comes to a frappe or frappé, there is usually ice involved. And that little addition helps cool people off and gives them a nice texture to gulp down. So, I'm sure you can see why this type of beverage became so popular and why people would want to celebrate it.  Now the word frappe comes from the Old French word frapper, which pretty much means to hit or strike. And when you know how to prepare one, you can kind of see why that word is used. Why? Because you hit the ingredients with blender blades or you shake it up and they slam into the side of your shaker. So it's all about the movement which will give you a nice foam on top and lots of crushed ice.

So, depending on how you make it, you'll end up with something close to a slush or a smoothie with possibly a bit more texture and added foam. But you can make them into a milkshake, a fruity drink or even an iced coffee. You just have to decide which flavors and textures you want to splash against your tongue.  I'll give you a moment to make up your mind. 

HOW TO CELEBRATE 

So, how can you celebrate today?  Well, you can always take the easy route when it comes to celebrations and today is no different. There are plenty of fast food and other restaurants that will gladly make you a frappe of any kind in exchange for a little currency. So if you're busy or just want to relax all day then head to a restaurant that makes frappes and order one that will suit your tongue.

But you know you can make your own, right? Go ahead and look online for a few ideas and try to come up with one of your own, if you like. But you are going to need some kind of mixer, blender or shaker so get one of those in your kitchen or the results won't be as good. Oh, and don't forget to freeze some ice beforehand! Now all you need to decide is if you want to go with fruity or one that's packed with coffee!  There are mixes you can get to help you along the way in the coffee department but with the fruit version you'll probably want to grab some of your favorite, fresh fruit! But don't be afraid to get creative... there are tons of different types of coffee out there and I'm sure you already know the wide variety of things that people like to put in their coffee. And fruit? Come on, you have a TON of choices there! Heck, you can even freeze coffee or fruit juice into the ice cubes you're going to use in your frappe. Who likes a watered down beverage, right?  Have a great day and try to avoid the brain freeze!
