Web's Best Recipe Frappuccino -- Mocha Flavor

recipe frappuccinoYou've slurped them at the Big S. Now make recipe frappuccino at home. Mocha flavored, of course. This is a chocolate web site, after all!

I can't promise you that the frappuccino's you make from these recipes will be as good as the ones you get at Starbucks. The giant chain isn't keen on giving away their secret recipes. Still, these recipes will be a good substitute on those days when you can't fit in a trip to your local coffee house.

Trivia: According to Starbucks, one mocha frappuccino, made with low fat milk and with whipped cream on top contains 260 calories and 12 grams of fat.

If specialty coffees are your passion, you'll want your own machine. There are many on the market and they provide varying degrees of satisfaction. The Capresso 121.01 Ultima Semi-Automatic Coffee and Espresso/Cappuccino Machine to the left gets rave reviews from satisfied consumers.

And now for your first recipe frappuccino.

Frappuccino Recipe #1 -- Thick, Cold, Mocha Flavor

Directions : Serves 2

1 cup extra-strong, cold coffee. Be sure coffee is very strong. It will be diluted with equal amounts of ice.
1 cup crushed ice OR the equivalent in small ice cubes that will crush readily in a blender or drink mixer
2 tb sp good quality cocoa powder
2 tb sp sugar (or to taste)
Optional: 2 tb sp flavored syrup

Combine all ingredients in a blender or drink mixer. Mix until smooth. Pour into glasses and garnish recipe frappuccino with whipped cream and shaved chocolate.

Tip: To make plain frappuccino, omit the chocolate. Consider adding vanilla syrup or other flavoured syrup for taste.

Recipe Frappuccino #2 -- Milky Mocha

This recipe is similar to the bottled frappuccino you can buy in supermarkets -- but containing chocolate, of course.

1/4 cup expresso, chilled
1 cup milk (use low fat milk if you are cutting calories or fat content

1 1/2 tb sp sugar (or to taste)

Place all ingredients in a drink mixer. Mix until smooth. Pour into chilled glasses and if desired, garnish with shaved chocolate or whipped cream.
