Mocha Frappuccino Recipe

Mocha Frappuccino Recipe - with Real Food Ingredients www.GrowingUpTriplets.com #recipe #drink #coffee #mochaOh, coffee. Let me list the ways I love thee:

  • warmth
  • versatility
  • taste
  • comfort
  • refreshing
  • calming
  • exciting
  • familiar
  • essence
  • aroma
  • romantic
  • and…

expensive.

Now, hold on. I am not about to suggest you toss those filters and your mugs out the window. (I do value my life, after all. ;) ) I just mean the kind of coffee you head into the coffee shop to buy can be quite a hit on your wallet. But that doesn’t mean ya gotta stop enjoying your cuppa joe!

Real Food Ingredients – Mocha Frappuccino Recipe

Clearly, I am a sucker for coffee. And I love associating different coffees with different seasons, memories, etc. (C’mon, you know you do, too!) For example, I love getting a French Press when I’m out with the hubby on a date. And my drink of choice on my own? A poor man’s raspberry mocha…more on that later.

One thing I am not big into, however, is the frozen drinks from the coffee shops. They taste more like milkshakes to me, and usually set my teeth on edge with the sweet-factor.

But when my friend, Brittany, shared that she had perfected a mocha frappuccino recipe using real food ingredients, I couldn’t wait to try it. I told her the proof would be in the pudding – or when my hubby tried it. He used to work at a coffee shop chain, back in the day, and has high expectations for stuff like this. (He could pull shots like nobody’s business!) So if it gained his approval, it’s good.

Guess what? It did!

So we’re sharing it with you – on one condition. That you make plans to deliver it to your sweetheart (or a friend) at some point for Valentine’s Day. Because that’s just gotta happen. How can you keep this recipe to yourself?? Ok, you pinky promise? Great!

Ingredients

Prior to making your mocha frappe, brew some strong coffee (maybe 1 Tablespoon to every 6 oz of water). Once cooled, pour into some ice cube trays (like these). Freeze until ready to blend those babies up!

Place cubes into the bottom of your blender (the Blendtec turns this drink so smooth!). Pour the milk, syrup, and vanilla in. Add the cocoa powder and the salt. If you’re using a Blendtec, use the ice crush/milkshake setting on blender for a thicker drink. For a thinner drink, use the soup/dip button.

Makes about 2-10 oz. drinks!

Variations

You could make this pretty in pink with some real, homemade whipped cream and peppermint candy, all crushed up and sprinkled on top of the whipped cream. How romantic-al is that?

If you like a stronger coffee flavor, add more cubes. We actually upped our coffee cubes to about 12 cubes (1 oz. each) the last time we made this recipe!

Perfection.

What’s your favorite coffee drink? Do you know someone who would love you for sharing this mocha frappuccino recipe with them?

    I am 16 and have been eating only real food for Lent. I haven’t had any coffee for months and used to love the Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino before I learned about what it contained……ewww. I tried this recipe for the first time this afternoon and was jumping up and down screaming over how delicious it was. It’s just like Starbucks except I’m not poisoning my body. Thanks a million!
