Mocha Frappuccino

12 Jul

Pin It
You want to know the secret to the perfect frappuccino? A trick that will make it so smooth, rich and creamy? I discovered this trick sometime last year, when I started making my own coffee drinks. And my frappuccinos have never been the same.

6 milk cubes
2 oz. espresso
1 tbsp chocolate syrup
A shot of your favorite creamer
Whipped cream

Brew your espresso, and chill in the refrigerator. Throw your milk cubes, chilled espresso, chocolate syrup, and creamer into a blender, and blend until smooth. Serve with whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup.

I like to freeze milk into ice cube trays and keep them in a ziplock in my freezer. It’s nice to have them on hand for frappuccinos! They break up in the blender so much better than ice, and make a smoother finished product.
