Silky Mocha Frappuccino

"It took me forever to come up with a frappuccino recipe that tasted like it came from a coffee shop. most people say theirs taste like Starbucks, but it doesn't. This actually tastes like Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks, and is so easy."

    This saved me lots of calories and money and has cured me of my McDonald's frappe mocha addiction! Very good...perfect consistency when I added 1 cup ice plus 2 more ice cubes. Made it with 1/2 cup 1% milk, 1Tablespoon Truvia, made the strong coffee with 1/3 cup warm water and 1 tsp decaf instant, did use the 2 T syrup ( 100 cal) and also added 1 tsp cocoa powder. Overall, this HAS to beat 450 + calories from Micky D's!

    Excellent and rivals any you might get at a coffee shop. I added in an extra tablespoon of chocolate syrup. I also concocted a couple simple, yet common variations. Java Chip Mocha Frappuccino: add 2 slightly heaping tablespoons chocolate chips. Peanut Butter Mocha Frappuccino: add 1-2 Tbsp. peanut butter (optional: 1 Tbsp. chocolate chips).

    I made this recipe today and it is wonderful! So refreshing on a hot summer day. I used a little more ice than called for so it was a little too bad! I used my cold brew coffee concentrate (1/3 cup regular Yuban or your choice and 1 1/2cups bottled water, steep 12-24 hours on the counter, strain through coffee filter into jar) and it worked perfectly as a sub for double strong brewed coffee. Thanks, meaty, It'll be a perfect pick-my-up this summer.

    This tastes great. Perfect for a hot Texas afternoon. I have to admit I added a tablespoon of cocoa because I am a chocoholic. So glad I found this recipe, we moved way out in the country and I miss my Frappucchino from that "other place".

    Yummy!!! Great coffee drink that is easy to make. I just put in some instant coffee with the milk. The blender mixed it in and it didn't last long. Maybe I need another.

    Perfect proportions. I used chocolate milk instead of the milk and chocolate syrup and used espresso instead of coffee. I think I'll be making this everyday this summer. Thanks for the recipe

    I altered this recipe to add a touch of the holidays. Instead of chocolate syrup, I used caramel ice cream topping, and instead of milk, I used pumpkin spice coffee creamer. I may never need Starbucks again!

    This was delicious and Just what I was looking for. I did need a little more ice for the right consistancy but that may have been because my coffee was still warm. Also, I was bad; I used cream instead of milk.

    This was good! I followed the recipe exactly as stated except I had to add about 1/2 cup more ice to get it nice and thick, and then I had two servings, not one (at least 16 oz)...unless you like super size servings! I used a regular full-bodied coffee and it was enough. I want it more creamy next time, so I am going to try adding 1/2 frozen banana or substitute the milk for vanilla yogurt to see if I can get the frothy part. Thank you for posting.

    Excellent!! Had to substitute pure cocoa and an extra half tablespoon of sugar for syrup once, and it still worked out well. Hope to try it with Sucralose (splenda) soon!
