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.
I talked to the Pepsi 'guy' and he said the Fraps have condensed milk in them........may try substituting that for the regular milk.........maybe that's why I'm getting so fat........besides drinking 2-3 a day.........
too chocolatey.. i would go with 2tbs instead of 3. then put it in the fridge to chill so the ice dont melt and get watery
I made some changes based on reviews: Subbed 1C Ice Cream (Caramel Swirl was what I had in the freezer) instead of milk; Used NO SUGAR; (Still used the 2C ice). It was smooth and stayed icee. Fantastically delicious. It sure hit the spot and I didn't have to leave home or fork out the "bucks".
I tried it out on a really hot day, and the ice melted fairly quickly, so my Frappuccino was watery... I found that if I added a few tablespoons of whipped cream it came out creamier, much like the real Frappuccino :)
A little thaw in the winter chill and I celebrated with this treat. A great way to enjoy milk. I used a sugar free chocolate syrup and skim milk along with some leftover hazelnut coffee. Found there was enough sweetness from the syrup that the sugar was not needed. Made for the I Recommend Tag Game.
This is ridiculously good. I'm on my fourth one of the day, and had to create an account just to tell you THANK YOU! I
