You may be looking at a refrigerator filled with leftovers this morning from your Thanksgiving feast.
Why not start with a new frappuccino to set the mood?
Made with cranberry tea and topped with a dollop of cranberry sauce, this festive, chilled drink will put a cool spin on a drink favorite.
Cranberry Frozen Frappuccino
4 ounces warm water
Cranberry tea bag
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 packet sweetener
1 Tbsp Davincis sugar free vanilla syrup, or 2 drops Stevia Sweetleaf vanilla liquid drops
1-1/2 cups crushed ice
2 Tbsp low-carb cranberry sauce (recipe here)
Combine powdered sweetener, tea and water. Let steep for 5 minutes. Squeeze excess tea bag into water after removing to get the most of the flavor and color.
Crush ice in blender (or, better yet, use the crush setting on the icemaker). Combine all ingredients in blender and mix until frothy.
Top with whipping cream and chocolate syrup if desired (recipes follow)(or top with extra cranberry sauce).
Makes 1, approx 12 ounce frozen frappuccino.

I absolutely love this recipe. I find myself making batches of the cranberry sauce just to make the Frapps. I started freezing the sauce in ice cube trays, 1 tablespoon in each. Once frozen, I put the cubes in a ziplock freezer bag. When I want a Frapp I just pull out 2 cubes and add it to the rest of the mix. Easy to use, always ready and on hand.
