Yum! I didn't follow the recipe exactly. We always have leftover coffee after DH brews the morning pot, so I did freeze some the other day and finally got around to making this. I didn't measure, just added some milk and sugar, plus a couple small hazelnut creamers. It was delicious! And I'll definitely be freezing more coffee ice cubes! Thanks for posting! So quick, easy and definitely much less expensive!
I love you for posting this!! As I'm a vegan, Starbucks won't make me frappuccinos because they say "it's a cream base, it won't work with soymilk"... Yeah, well, in your face, Starbucks! This tastes fab, is so quick and easy to make and modify (I added agave nectar and a dash of vanilla), and is low in calories to boot. My pals and I will be drinking a lot of these in the coming summer heat. Thanks so much!
This is it!! I use a little less milk and it's the same as what you pay $6 for. BTW..."they" over roast their coffee which gives it a longer shelf-life, but a harder taste. Hate them. Secret to the best coffee...grind your own beans and use a coffee press. I pay $6 per pound at the grocery store. You'll kick yourself for paying so much at the coffee shops.
I made this recipe this morning after my ten mile bicycle ride. It is great! I made half a recipe and still got two servings. I added a little Irish Cream and it was a great way to cool down in this heat.
I made this today just to sit out on the deck and enjoy a beautiful afternoon. It's super!!! No Starbucks near me, but when I lived in Atlanta, seems there was one on every corner, as well as Carribou Coffee, Aurora Coffee, and others. I love these things. I do try to keep by caffien intake to a minimum, but this is the perfect hot afternoon "pick me up". Thanks for sharing. I'll be stick blending these things the rest of the summer!
I love the Starbuck's Frappuccino but have a hard time justifying the cost. This is a perfect substitute! My husband was relunctant to try it as he doesn't usually like these type of drinks, but he loved it too! We like ours a little sweeter so I used about 3 Tbsps sugar and also added about 3 or 4 Tbsps chocolate syrup.Yummmy.
i ordered one at starbucks yesterday in the target store. wanted another today but couldnt get out as i was waiting for repairmen for the house so i found this recipe and made it. it was actually better than starbucks as the one at starbucks was a bit hard flavored for my taste...not too strong, just had a hard flavor. i follwed the recipe exactly; subbed turbinado sugar for just plain sugar which then made it difficult to get the sugar to disintegrate in the drink, so on my SECOND cup; i added the sugar while the coffee was hot; then let the coffee cool and then added the skim milk and cream. perfect. i used all organic ingredients and will definitly make this again, but will cut down on the whipped cream as i will be drinking them throughout the day. thanks for sharing!!!
This is how I make frappuccino all the time for my son and husband and they love it. Sometimes I substitute a can of sweetened condensed milk for the milk and sugar, and sometimes I use Splenda instead of sugar. It's delicious.
It is NOT better than Starbucks, it was actually kind of gross
