How to Make Perfect Iced Mocha Frappes at Home

Updated on May 26, 2013
4 stars from 5 ratings of Iced Mocha Frappe

On a hot summer morning, nothing tastes better than an icy cold chocolate coffee. On a hot summer evening, the same drink in decaf is the perfect treat to wind down your day. Iced coffees from the local coffee house are so expensive, though, and loaded with extra calories. You can make the same luscious chocolate drink from the coffee shop in your own kitchen. In about five minutes, for about fifty cents, you can personalize your own iced mocha frappe with the perfect amount of milk and chocolate for your palate and your waistline. The recipe below is basic, and can be modified for chocoholics as well as the lactose-intolerant. Experiment to find your perfect blend, then kick back with a large glass and a thick straw, and enjoy your summer in tasty, frugal style.

      I tried this today and of course I had to alter the portions to accommodate my larger nutribullet cup. But it worked so well. I mean I literally did a little dance
