Cool and creamy, Homemade Mocha Frappuccino is a simple summertime treat made with just a few ingredients.
This is so easy to make and much more cost effective than buying one in a cafe or restaurant. The part I like best is being able to adjust the ingredients to suit your taste. If you’re into more chocolate, go right ahead and add another tablespoon of rich, good quality cocoa. Perhaps you like a thick frappuccino with lots of ice like my husband; I prefer mine a little less frozen myself. In fact you can pour it over ice and skip the blender all together. But don’t skip the whipped cream and chocolate syrup drizzle … just saying 🙂
I’ve been known to wake up in the morning and feel the need to drink several cups of coffee. In my haste I often make too much thinking it may take more than two cups to get me going. My husband, who is the original foode in this house, is always grateful to have leftovers so he can make coffee smoothies. He has even been known to use chocolate milk in his coffee at work, especially in a pinch. Since we hate to throw anything out, a nice cold Homemade Mocha Frappuccino is a perfect afternoon treat to use up that extra coffee.
Are you in the middle of this heatwave? It is crazy hot here again today with the heat index at 110 degrees. Sweat city! I feel sorry for anybody that has to work outdoors and can’t get in from the heat. I don’t think I could ever get used to it.
We are fine to drink the Mocha Frappuccino straight from the blender but who can resist a little whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup? Not me!
Feel free to add more ice if you want. I like a little less to keep that full rich chocolate coffee flavor. What do you think?
Is it time for a little creamy Homemade Mocha Frappuccino?
