How to Make Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino

This cool and delicious beverage is a combination of coffee and chocolate which is always a winner. The chocolate is here to satisfy your sugar cravings while the coffee gives you the boost of energy you need.

To make this refreshing, caffeinated, blended drink you need only five simple ingredients and not more than five minutes. That’s right. You no longer have to run out to buy your favorite coffee drink. With these five ingredients and the help from high speed blender, you’ll be making this beauty at home any time you want. Isn’t that amazing?

The ingredients for your homemade Mocha Frappuccino are coffee, sugar, milk, chocolate syrup, and ice. You can use whipping cream to make your iced coffee look and taste even better.

Starbucks uses espresso to make its popular mocha frappe, but you can also use brewed strong coffee, instant coffee, or even decaffeinated coffee. The important thing to remember about coffee is to use it cold, so make sure you chill it before using it. If you decide to use regular coffee, expect a less intense coffee flavor.

When it comes to milk, feel free to use any milk you have in your kitchen. You can use whole milk, non-fat milk, 2% skim milk, coconut milk, soy milk, or almond milk. So, if you prefer creamier mocha frappe, use whole milk. If you want a mocha frappe with fewer calories, go with 1% milk or skim milk.

To get that mocha flavor you crave, use a ready-made chocolate syrup, such as Hershey’s, or make it from scratch with sugar and cocoa. It’s up to you. This ingredient gives that chocolate flavor you love in your mocha frappe.

Use granulated or table sugar or vanilla syrup as an alternative. Since you’re going to use a powerful ice blending machine, you’ll have no problem mixing the granulated sugar. You can also use Splenda or another no calorie sugar substitute.

Last but not least, ice is the key ingredient that makes this coffee drink refreshing and perfect for hot summer days. 1 x 1 inch sized ice cubes are ideal for this recipe. In general, the more ice, the frothier the drink.

Once your copycat Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino is made, top it with whipped cream and drizzle some chocolate syrup for a more attractive look.

As you can see, pretty much everything about this recipe is easy. The ingredients are simple and the preparation easy and quick. So, there’s really no reason why you shouldn’t try making this delicious, chilled iced coffee at home.

Here are the right amounts of each ingredient and step-by-step instructions on how to make it.
