It took me forever to come up with a frappuccino recipe that tasted like it came from a coffee shop. most people say theirs taste like Starbucks, but it doesn't. This actually tastes like Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks, and is so easy.
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, plus
- 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 1⁄3 cup strong coffee
- 1 cup ice
- In a blender, combine everything but the ice, and blend until sugar has dissolved.
- Add ice and blend until smooth (sometimes you will need a bit more ice).
This saved me lots of calories and money and has cured me of my McDonald's frappe mocha addiction! Very good...perfect consistency when I added 1 cup ice plus 2 more ice cubes. Made it with 1/2 cup 1% milk, 1Tablespoon Truvia, made the strong coffee with 1/3 cup warm water and 1 tsp decaf instant, did use the 2 T syrup ( 100 cal) and also added 1 tsp cocoa powder. Overall, this HAS to beat 450 + calories from Micky D's!
Excellent and rivals any you might get at a coffee shop. I added in an extra tablespoon of chocolate syrup. I also concocted a couple simple, yet common variations. Java Chip Mocha Frappuccino: add 2 slightly heaping tablespoons chocolate chips. Peanut Butter Mocha Frappuccino: add 1-2 Tbsp. peanut butter (optional: 1 Tbsp. chocolate chips).
I made this recipe today and it is wonderful! So refreshing on a hot summer day. I used a little more ice than called for so it was a little too icy..my bad! I used my cold brew coffee concentrate (1/3 cup regular Yuban or your choice and 1 1/2cups bottled water, steep 12-24 hours on the counter, strain through coffee filter into jar) and it worked perfectly as a sub for double strong brewed coffee. Thanks, meaty, It'll be a perfect pick-my-up this summer.
