Frappuccino is absolutely one of my favorite coffee drinks that I order when I go to fancy coffee shops.

Of course, I don’t get to those place very often, even though just this past year, two really popular coffee shops came to our town. One opened in the hospital lobby and the other with a more convenient drive thru.

To be honest though, I only visited the one at the hospital while I was there visiting my Grandmother, but wouldn’t make a special trip to search for a parking space to then go inside and buy a frappuccino, even though I love theirs more I can even begin to fathom.

But, guess what? I made this in about two minutes at home.

I drank in about the same amount of time, too.

    Hi Robyn,

    Out of curiosity I did an image search of an image on facebook as I could tell they didn’t make the picture. Turns out it’s yours. Just wanted to let you know..

    It sounds delicious! We have a different version of it in my Argentininan town: instead of ice, we prepare it with ice-cream (chocolate, vainilla or “dulce de leche”). It’s refreshing, indeed!

    Oh my!! Your photo looks so delicious! I usually don’t have a coffee drink with whipped cream and chocolate fudge, but I am about to! I always drink iced latte at home that I now perfectioned. With your instructions I’m going to make a frappuccino too one of these days! And that machine looks amazing!!!!

    Great post… It may take me more than two minutes but I think I need to start making my fraps at home…. I am a Starbucks addict.

    I love frappuccinos. Honestly, I love most of the fancy coffee drinks. But I’m just too thrifty to purchase them very often. It’s just amazing how much people will pay for those drinks when they can be made for pennies at home! Great recipe as usual, Robyn, and a real money saver, too!

    Thanks so much for this! A certain PIA mail order makes a mix, for the vanilla too, but they taste so artificial it’s disgusting. I’m going to try this today, which will be our last warm day for a little while.

    The machine is awesome!!! That Frap- oh my gosh!!! Whip Cream & Chocolate Syrup- is MANDATORY in my book :) and yes, I would down it in less time than it took to create it. That is for sure. Hmmmm- I still have a little bit of espresso left this morning- I think I see one of these in my future!

    This looks A-mazing!!! I heard a rumor that one of these babies in in the way to my house, but I haven’t seen it, yet. Now I REALLY want it here so I can make one of these!!!

    PS…Robyn, what is your go-to lens for food photography? I know half the trick is having photography SKILLS (which I don’t have), but I figure, I have the right LENS, maybe mine could look half this good.

      You are going to LOVE it, Bridget. Just a cup of the long coffee is out of this world. So full of flavor and the aroma is out of this world.

      Okay, so I use a 24-70mm f/2.8 practically all the time now on my Nikon. I’m in love with that thing.
