Copycat Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino
Normally when I hit up Starbucks I order an Americano with vanilla or a plain black tea. But every once in a while, especially when it’s hot, I get my mind stuck on ordering a Mocha Frappuccino. (Especially when they offer them for $2 or $3!) Chocolate and coffee. Those two things combined are hard to beat! Also, the whipping cream is a big seller to me 😉
Anyways, I thought that the Mocha Frappuccino would be a great thing to try to recreate at home so I could enjoy one once in while through the summer. I also happen to love to saving money on “luxuries”.
Here’s how you can create a Copycat Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino at home:
- 3/4 cup Espresso Coffee
- 1/4 cup Sugar
- 1 cup Milk
- 1/2 cup Dark Chocolate Syrup
- pinch Xantham Gum
- 4 cups Ice
- Whipped Cream for topping
- Chocolate Syrup to drizzle over whipped cream
Make coffee according to directions.
While still hot, pour coffee into blender
Add sugar and mix until dissolved.
Add milk, chocolate syrup and xantham gum and mix another minute.
Place in refrigerator for 30 minutes to cool.
Add ice to blender and blend on high until smooth.
Pour into glasses.
Top each glass with whipped cream.
