Recipe: Stefanie’s Cappuccino Ice Cream Punch

Our MOPS moms might remember this frothy ice cream and coffee punch that Stefanie G. brought to a recent meeting. She was nice enough to share the recipe. Enjoy!

“Yes, you don’t even want to think about how many calories you are consuming in one cup, and yes, you could make it low-fat. However…..it just won’t be as good, so make it as a treat every once in a while.” Stefanie G.
