Tasty Tuesday: Homemade Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino

This is my FAVORITE Starbucks drink! There can be 10 inches of snow on the ground and I still crave this icy drink! But we all know that these little Starbucks drinks are $4 a pop! So I was DELIGHTED to find that my oldest sister, Kristen, has discovered how to make these at home - bless her heart! This is what older sisters are for right? lol!


Last week, while the kids swam at her house - she whipped one up (actually two and she offered me thirds but who's counting right?) and it was delicious!!! Here's the recipe:

Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino
3/4 cup double-strength coffee
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 cup low-fat milk
2 cups ice
3 Tbls. Hershey's Chocolate
Optional:
3 Tbs whipped cream
trade chocolate syrup for caramel copping to make a Caramel Frappuccino


Directions:
Make double-strength coffee by brewing with twice the coffee required by your coffee maker(that should be 2 tablespoons of ground coffee per each cup of coffee). Chill before using.
Then combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend on high speed until ice is crushed and drink is smooth. Pour into two 16-ounce glasses, and serve with a straw.

MOCHA Version:
For this version, add 3 tablespoons Hershey's chocolate syrup to the original recipe and prepare as described. Top each glass with whipped cream, if desired.


CARAMEL Version:
For this version, add 3 tablespoons of caramel topping to the original recipe and prepare as described. Top each glass with whipped cream and drizzle additional caramel over the whipped cream.

If you have one of these going in the blender you must invite me over - cause there's enough for two you know? Enjoy!


Walk with the King!

Oh my goodness! Is it really that simple?! I'll definitely be trying that tonight when my hubby gets home. We both LOVE this drink from Starbucks!

Lately, we've been using a cappuccino mix and blending it with vanilla ice cream and milk to make shakes. But the Mocha Frap is MUCH better! :)

Thank you SO much for sharing!!!!

Sweet! You just made my day. I second the pregnancy craving and often cave into paying the $4 at Starbucks.

Thanks for sharing your recipe! Just a suggestion: You might want to chill the coffee before mixing or make your ice cubes out of coffee. These steps prevent it from tasting watered down or getting melty too quickly.

We recently moved to the country, and the nearest Starbucks is about 45 minutes away (I mean REALLY the country!). So not only is this a savings, it makes it possible for us to have these at all - absolutely going to pick up the chocolate and caramel toppings and enjoy these this weekend with my husband - he loves iced caramel lattes and I'm pretty sure I can take this recipe and tweak it a bit to come up with a good imitation.

Thanks so much for this. Once and awhile I indulge in the McDonalds version of this but even that one is expensive. I am making one of these this afternoon! What a special treat, thanks.

THANK YOU!! I am a college student. I love coffee, and drink it a lot when I'm studying, but it's so expensive. I think this will save my senior year :)
