Since I serve this is very large glasses I have listed at two servings, you may divide into as many servings as you wish, make certain to use very strong coffee for this --- this is very good!

I've been trying to cut down on my Starbucks' visits, so I've been looking for a good frappuccino recipe that's a suitable substitute. This definitely fits the bill! I used two packets of instant coffee dissolved in water instead of brewing some, 2 tablespoons of Starbucks mocha powder instead of the chocolate syrup, and a sugar-free chocolate ice cream. I thought this turned out even better than a regular mocha, with a lovely mix of chocolate and coffee flavors. It reminded me of the blended drinks I used to get at a locally owned coffee shop, just delicious and much, much cheaper! This recipe is great -- I thank you and my wallet does, too!
