While browsing CakeSpy.com we stumbled across this recipe for home made Frappuccinos via Savory Sweet Life, we feel this might just be the perfect remedy for hot summer days. Check out the directions from Alice at savorysweetlife.com:
Alice’s home version of Starbucks Frappuccino Recipe
1.5 cups of crushed iced
2-1 ounce shots of espresso
3/4 cup of milk
3 tbl. of sugar (more or less depending on preference)
*optional whipped cream in a can or freshly made and chocolate syrup
*If you don’t have an espresso machine, use 3/4 cup of double strength (strong) coffee mixed with 1/2 cup of milk and increased crushed iced amount by 1/4 cup.
Blend all the ingredients except the whipped cream in a blender for 30-45 seconds. Pour into a tall glass and top off with whipped cream and garnish with chocolate syrup. Best served with a straw. Enjoy!
Alice’s home version of Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino Recipe
Prepare everything the same as a regular Frappuccino (recipe above) except reduce sugar to 2 tbl. and add 2 tbl. of chocolate syrup. Enjoy!
Use splenda, flavored coffee syrups, or flavored coffee creamers for a portion of the milk. For a richer beverage, use half and half, or heavy cream for a portion of the milk.
Disclaimer: This is not Starbuck’s actual proprietary recipe. This is my own version copycat clone frappuccino recipe of it. This recipe is for a blended icy coffee frappe / beverage similar to but not the same as Starbucks.
