Frappuccino from addapinch.com

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.

Ingredients for this Recipe

To make this amazing frappuccino at home, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • Ice – I recommend using crushed ice. If you have ice cubes, just place them into a zip top bag and carefully break the ice cubes into smaller pieces with the back of a spoon.
  • Espresso or Strong Coffee – this is the key to a delicious frappuccino! You can use a home espresso maker or just brew very, very strong coffee to use instead.
  • Milk – use your favorite half-and-half, milk or milk alternative (soy, almond, oat milk, etc).
  • Sweetener – use your sweetener of choice from granulated sugar to sugar alternatives such as stevia, honey, etc.
  • Optional Toppings – Whipped cream and chocolate syrup bring that coffee-house style fancy coffee drink right home!

How to Make Frappuccino at Home

  1. Blend together ice, espresso (or strong coffee), milk, and sweetener until well blended.
  2. Pour into a tall glass and top with optional toppings of whipped cream and chocolate syrup, if using.
  3. Serve immediately and enjoy every sip!

Here’s my Frappuccino recipe that rivals any that you can find anywhere else. Promise.

  1. CRUSHED ICE! Thank you so much for this recipe. I’ve tried to make a blended coffee drink so many times and it never worked right! Crushed ice is the key! I did use just a double shot (~2 oz) of espresso and halved the entire recipe so it was just enough for 1. Thank you!!!!

    1. If you went through the trouble of halving the recipe I think you deserve to know that there’s a place where it says: servings, and you can change the number to the amount you want the recipe will automatically change to the correct measurements.

  2. This is my go to drink when I teach virtual workshops – I so look forward to blending it on my first break when I don’t have time for breakfast. A couple of tips that I got from a gal who is opening her own coffee shop – add protein powder and a pinch of salt! Now you have extra nutrition and the flavor pops! This blended beautifully in my Ninja bullet and is still wonderful with instant coffee but even better with espresso. I just a basic blender right now that isn’t doing the trick. I’ll follow your tip and try crushing the ice beforehand and hope that will help. Thank you!

  3. I made this for me and my kids to try. I can’t have caffeine so I made it with decaf cold brewed coffee and 2% milk and it came out so good! I put caramel sauce around the inside and on top of the whip cream and it added that extra flavor. My kids said it tasted just like Starbucks and I would agree! This is now my go to. Thank you

    1. Misty, this decaf version sounds delicious and I am so glad you found a way you can enjoy this drink. Thanks.

  4. SO SO SO GOOD! ANYONE WHO SEES THIS COMMENT NEEDS TO LISTEN TO ME! THIS IS SO GOOD AND YOU NEED TO TRY IT! YOU CAN MAKE IT CAFFEINE FREE AND YOU CAN MAKE IT REALLY QUICK AND EASY TO MAKE! IT TASTES SO GOOD!

    1. I would cool the coffee before making the Frappuccino, Ana, or the hot coffee would melt the ice.
