  • Just a few tid bits of info from a former Starbucks employee - the coffee in a frapp is actually double strength italian roast. And a different way to make double strength coffee is to use about 1 1/2 as much grinds, and only run it through once, it will keep your coffee maker cleaner!

  • good recipe, I usually add vanilla ice cream to make it a bit creamier.

  • I’d almost have to say that the amount of sugar could probably be cut down a bit if using any of the Torani flavors.

  • Hey it's the Moses lake girl again and i love this recipe it great i dident have any pectin but it is still great. I added some of my creamer that i have and it wonderful thank you!!!

  • Hi! I've been perusing your website for about 15 minutes, after hitting upon it when I googled frozen coffee drink. I've seen a similar recipe before, but yours made more sense. I'm a former Starbucks employee, so I kind of hate to spend my money there, if you know what I mean. I followed your instructions, using a stovetop Moka espresso pot (which makes lovely coffee by the way).

  • I use 1 tbsp per 9.5 of Hersheys dark chocolate chips and I used Condensed Milk. Yumma yumma.

  • i tried the frappachino and was hooked. I could not get enough. I think it tastes just as good as the stuff in the bottle.

  • I make icecubes out of left over coffee and use them to make a much better coffee taste. Love this stuff.

  • i also instead of espresso i used instant coffee

  • this recipe is truly just like the one at Starbucks and I no longer need to rush there to purchase it and at the prices wow.....So now I make extra coffe in the am and leave in the fridge and when I feel like a frap, I just blend this one...thanks it taste just like the one in the btls. that I purchase at Cosco's by the cases....Saving $$$$ for me.....thanks again...
