How to make Frappuccino
The Original Frappuccino
How to make Frappuccino
A Frappuccino is an original creation of blended coffee drinks, invented in 1995 by the well-known coffee franchise, Starbucks. It has become one of Starbucks’ most notable drinks, and a widely popular beverage across the nation. Millions of people roll out of bed every morning and drag their feet into the nearest Starbucks on their way to work, or stop there at lunch or in the middle of a hectic day, all for that little taste of heaven that will give them the energy boost they need to get on with their day.
Frappuccino is actually a word made by combining frappe (a frozen fruit dessert) and cappuccino (an Italian coffee beverage known as espresso when it's topped with steamed milk). Just as the words are blended, the beverage blends the frozen drink concept with the coffee concept. Sometimes they add flavored syrups or whipped cream to the iced coffee beverage. You can also purchase bottled versions from vending machines and convenience stores if you can't get to a Starbucks.. They sell different variations available like Light, Decaf, Crème, and most recently, Vegan. Since 2010 this variety uses soy milk rather than the regular milk they serve.
Now here is a simple recipe to replicate the delicious coffee beverage!

Food Of The Gods
Use a Heavy Duty Blender
Frozen drinks can kill a blender's motor. You need one with power. This one is really excellent and gets the job done without a problem. Great not just for household blending jobs, but all kinds of frozen drinks.
- 1-2 cups ice
- ½ cup dark roast coffee
- ½ cup low fat milk
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 2 tbsp caramel or chocolate syrup
- Brew your coffee. Make a double strength recipe by using twice the exact amount coffee needed.
- Place the coffee in your fridge or freezer to cool.
- Add all the ingredients except for the ice into the blender. Give them a whirl to blend them together for about 20 seconds, until the sugar has dissolved.
- Add ice in blend until the mixture is smooth to your liking.
Wait-- We're Not Done Yet!
Here's a twist on that recipe. You can use real espresso and sweetened condensed milk instead of milk and sugar to give it just a new taste to your tongue
- 2 tbsp. espresso powder
- 1/2 cup hot water
- 2 cups of ice cubes
- 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
Make espresso instead of coffee: dissolve the powder in hot water then let it cool to room temperature.
Now in your blender, combine the espresso mixture, condensed milk and ice. Blend on high for about a minute. Stop when the ice has completely dissolved. Pour into two cups.
Add whipped cream and chocolate syrup if you desire. It is a basic and inexpensive way to make a Frappuccino.
You can also experiment with different kinds of syrup flavors like vanilla, raspberry, hazelnut, or even strawberry. This will make for a great variety of flavor that you can serve to your guests or just for yourself. You can also liven up your home made Frappuccino by adding cocoa powder or even chocolate syrup.
