Hazelnut Coffee Coolers

What better way to cool down in the hot days of summer! Have yourself one of these! So good, betcha' can't just have one!!

2/3 c. instant coffee (dry) CAN USE NON- CAFFEINE granules

1 1/2 c. hazelnut flavored coffee creamer

1 c. water

1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

8 c. milk (can use 1% but NOT skim. They turn out too runny)

Whipped cream for garnish (optional)

Cinnamon for garnish 9optional)

1-Mix coffee, creamer, water and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon in a medium bowl, stirring until coffee is dissolved.

2- Pour into 2 ice -cube trays. Freeze about 3 hours or until cubes have hardened. Once they are frozen, remove from trays and place in a freezer bag.

3-For each serving place 2 coffee cubes, 2/3 c. milk and 4 regular ice cubes into blender. Cover and blend on high speed about 20 seconds or until slushy. Pour into glass. Top with a dollop of whipped cream and a dash of cinnamon
