Cuban Iced Chocolate Frappe Recipe

I call this drink the Cuban Iced Chocolate Frappe recipe because it’s inspired by that stupendous chocolate concoction I had in Old Town Havana when I visited Cuba but I don’t know where it’s really from or exactly how to make it. What I do know is that I’ve made my best approximation and that it’s frothy, not too sweet, and deeply, darkly chocolatey, which, for a chocoholic like me, is enough to know it’s worth making. 

Now, go stock up on all your cooking essentials, then head into the kitchen, make this, and share it with us by tagging @saltandwind and #swsociety on social!
