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!
- 1 1⁄2 cups cold strong coffee
- 1 1⁄4 cups chocolate ice cream (can use more)
- 1⁄4 cup chocolate syrup
- sugar (to taste) (optional)
- 2 cups crushed ice, divided (about 1 cup for each glass, or use as much as desired)
- whipped cream
- In a blender combine coffee with ice cream and chocolate syrup; blend until smooth.
- Add in sugar (if using) and blend slightly until combined.
- Place about 1 cup crushed ice in two large tall glasses.
- Divide the mixture into the glasses.
- Top with a dollup of whipped cream.
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!
Omg, WHY? why? I love this drink @ Starbucks but because it costs so much and I see the calories I usually can stay away BUT why did you have to post this. This will be the death of many diets to come, and of course I would discover this right before bathing suit season. "Almost" is not even the word, add a little mocha syrup instead of sugar and die a little bit every time. TO DIE FOR = THE DEATH OF ME!!!
Oh my, I think this drink must be illegal in 37 states! I didn't use any sugar, but I added a shot of rhum. All I can say is Wow! Thanks for the recipe Kittencal!
