Iced Cappuccino with Almond Milk Redux

Simply put, Gran Fran's iced cappuccino makes me think of summer. I included this in my

Mother's Day post

, but really would like you to think about making it again now.

There are glimpses of real summer even her in San Francisco. And I know the rest of the country is hotter than a hot dog (the name of a children's book I used to read to Isabella), so I wanted to share this again with you.

Enjoy and keep cool!
