Starbucks Frappuccinos

Total Time
Prep 6 mins

A nice treat for hot summer days, without the cost! Can be made with or without the chocolate syrup. For a change, substitute vanilla ice cream for the sugar and ice . Got this from a friend, who got it from a copy-cat cookbook.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 34 cup coffee (double strength and cold)
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 cups ice (crushed seems to work a little better)
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate syrup


  1. Blend all ingredients in blender and enjoy!

I am enjoying this frappuccino as I write my review. Boy is this ever good! I followed the recipe as written, and when making the coffee, I just used 1 Tbsp of ground coffee per each 3/4 cup of water, and that made the coffee taste strong enough. I found this makes quite a bit, 40 ounces (5 cups) so I think this could make 3 servings. Thank you RaCa for posting this recipe.

This was an excellent starting point. I've played with this recipe in combination with others that I've found online (I don't have a lot of money but LOVE frappuccinos/frappuccini) and all have been fairly good but not quite the same as the original. I wanted to share the closest I've come to emulating the original: Ingredients: 1 cup of coffee (strong or not) frozen 3/4 cup of milk 2-3 tablespoons of sugar 2-4 "standard sized" ice cubes 2-3 tablespoons of chocolate syrup (caramel ice-cream topping syrup can be substituted to make a caramel frappuccino) 1) Take one cup of coffee (strong, or if you prefer, not so strong), pour it into an ice cube tray and freeze it. 2) Put the frozen coffee and above-listed ingredients into a blender and blend it together. 3) Yummy! Thank you to the poster of this recipe!

I used regular strength coffee to cut down on caffeine, vanilla almond milk to make it vegan, skipped the chocolate syrup, and was too impatient to wait for the coffee to cool. Despite all the changes, it still turned out perfectly. And made enough to share with my husband!<br/>Exactly what this overheated, 9 months preggo mama needed to get through a heat wave.
