Awesome blender = blended ice. Blended ice = blended coffee. And I found this basic copycat Starbucks Frappuccino recipe and you can jazz it up the way you like.
3/4 cup double strength coffee, chilled
3 tbsp. sugar
1 cup milk or cream
2 cups ice
1. Blend all ingredients (plus any additional ingredients if you so choose) until smooth and frothy.
This is where you get to have fun: add whatever flavours necessary to make your favorite Frappuccino (ps: whipped cream is always a highly encouraged topping). You can also buy tons of different flavoured syrups to enhance the taste and use instead of sugar (if it is a sweetener). Here are a few suggestions:
– Mocha Frapp: Chocolate syrup, use combination of cream and chocolate milk, optional garnish of more chocolate syrup, sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, or Oreo crumbles.
– Caramel Frapp: Caramel syrup.
– Chai Crème Frapp: Use strong chai tea instead of coffee, use milk, top with a little cinnamon, no sugar.
– Green Tea Frapp: Use strong green tea instead of coffee, use milk, no sugar.
You get the point. You can just Google Frappuccino and find the Starbucks product website (or any other website). You can use that for inspiration.
Another tip I just found online: freeze the coffee in ice cube tray. That way you aren’t watering down your coffee. I will definitely try it next time for my boyfriend because he prefers his coffee black. You could also use espresso (or instant coffee/espresso) to make it stronger. If you do not add a thicker liquid (such as cream or half and half) the consistency will be off.
Instead of sugar, I used agave so that it was slightly healthier. I used half milk and half cream so that it was a nice consistency.
