Polar Express Hot Chocolate (aka The Best Hot Chocolate EVER!) Hot Chocolate is so magical to me. There is nothing like a cup full of chocolate goodness on a cold, snowy, Christmas day. As the weather gets colder and Christmas get closer my kids get so excited for hot chocolate and could drink it probably every day (don't worry I restrain them but with this amazing stuff it's pretty difficult). I came across this fabulousness on Pinterest and was intrigued, especially because my kids are having a Polar Express themed Christmas--thanks to my parents. We whipped some up and WOW! We haven't gone back. It even beats the premium, gourmet stuff at the restaurants--seriously. Maybe because it's so high rent (you know the calorie count is quite over the top), but hey it's Christmas and your kids will love it. Funny story on this hot chocolate first. We had some friends stop by the other night. We had just gotten home from taking our kids to see Christmas lights and
Frappé No, we’re not talking about the stuff from Starbucks. Frappé is a traditional ice coffee drink from Greece and was actually invented by a local representative for Nescafe in the 1950s. As such, the recipe uses instant coffee (traditionally Nescafe), milk, sugar, and water, and can be made using a blender, a cocktail shaker, or electric milk frothier, so there are multiple ways to prepare it at home. First, put equal parts instant coffee and sugar (about two teaspoons of each) and then about a third of a cup of cold water into your mixer/shaker of choice. Blend or shake vigorously for about 30 seconds until the mixture is really frothy, pour into a glass with ice cups, and top with milk. People usually drink with a straw, as the frothy top part of the drink can be a bit bitter to some, but the blended part at the bottom makes for a refreshing beverage perfect for mornings or lazy afternoons. And you can always adjust the measurements to your taste.
Overview Information Coffee is a drink made from coffee beans, which are the roasted fruit of the Coffea arabica bush.

Coffee is also used to prevent Parkinson disease, dementia, and many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support many of these uses. Rectally, coffee is used as an enema to treat cancer. Coffee enemas are used as a part of the "Gerson Therapy." In the Gerson Therapy, cancer patients are treated with caffeinated coffee in the form of enemas every four hours on a daily basis.
