How to make it

  • Make double-strength coffee by brewing with twice the coffee required by your coffee maker: That should be 2 tablespoons of ground coffee per each cup of coffee. Chill before using.
  • To make drink, combine all ingredients in a blender and blend on high speed until ice is crushed and drink is smooth. Pour into two 16-ounce glasses, and serve with a straw.
  • CARAMEL Version:
  • For this version, add 3 tablespoons of caramel topping to the original recipe and prepare as described. Top each glass with whipped cream and drizzle additional caramel over the whipped cream.
  • MOCHA Version:
  • For this version, add 3 tablespoons Hershey's chocolate syrup to the original recipe and prepare as described. Top each glass with whipped cream, if desired.

    We loved being able to make this classic at home! If you get one of the sbux reusable iced coffee cups, it's just like the real thing for a fraction of the cost. We included this in a round up of our favorite frozen treats and drinks: http://www.partselect.com/JustForFun/Chilly-Fridge-Freezer-Treats.aspx

    If you like starbucks caramel frappuccinos, here are some tips to making something really close at home from somebody who does it just about every day: First, purchase the surprisingly affordable Mr. Coffee Cafe Frappe. You can find it on amazon. This little machine brews the coffee and blends the frappe all in one machine! And even though the coffee goes in hot, it still blends to the right temp and consistency believe it or not. Second, purchase a bottle of the Starbucks Caramel Syrup. This is the stuff they pump into your drink before blending. You can find that on amazon as well, or on starbucks.com, and they also sell it at any starbucks store you just have to ask the person behind the counter. I usually add 3 tablespoons because I like mine super sweet! I also use Smucker's Sunday Syrup Caramel, which you can purchase at any grocery store. I squeeze just a little into the blender and sometimes add some "drizzle" on top. Stay away from Hershey's syrups if you're using store-bought syrups for blending. For some reason, Hershey's syrups froth up your drink when it's blended. It's fine as a topping though. Not sure why, but Smucker's works better for blending. I don't add any sugar because I use so much syrup! :) I always use whole milk because it just tastes more authentic. And I use a medium-dark french roast to make it a little stronger. If I use a house blend, I usually add more than 3 tablespoons for a stronger flavor. The Mr. Coffee Cafe Frappe comes with a recipe book, which is convenient. Highly recommend that little machine! It's also really easy to clean. Not many parts. I usually just rinse out the brew basket and blender jar with soap and hot water daily, and then once a week I take the jar apart (3 pieces) and put it in the dish washer for a more thorough cleaning. Just be careful not to lose the rubber seal beneath the blade assembly when you're cleaning it! I had to order a new one because I lost it. Enjoy!!!

    This recipe rocks! I used a k-cup at the small cup setting. I rarely bought Frappuccinos. I've always been a straight coffe kinda guy but I'm addicted to this recipe! 5 stars for sure!

    Has anyone tried using the Starbucks frappuccino coffee drinks instead of double-strength coffee? I think that might be easier than brewing coffee!

    This recipe pretty much NAILS the Starbucks flavor.
    I used Cocoa instead of Hershey's Chocolate syrup like Xynthee did below, since I didn't have any chocolate syrup on hand. So I'll have to try the chocolate syrup later to if there's any significant difference.

    This is a great recipe! Thanks so much! I made a low-carb version by substituting the chocolate syrup with cocoa (I used 2 1/2 T. of cocoa, but you could probably get away with adding more - cocoa is really good for you, after all). I used xylitol instead of the sugar. I used 3 T., but many of you will want to add more sweetener to make up for the lack of chocolate syrup. I don't like super-sweet stuff, so 3 T. was enough for me. Next time, I'll add some low-carb homemade whipped cream:
    * 1 cup heavy cream
    * 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    * 1 tablespoon xylitol
    In a large bowl, whip cream until stiff peaks are just about to form. Beat in vanilla and sugar until peaks form. Make sure not to over-beat, cream will then become lumpy and butter-like.

    amazing! you just made my life so much easier. The closest starbuck to my house is a 10 min drive away, and I don't even have a permit. No more needing to beg my parents to drive me. :)
    just a tip: if u substitute truvia or splenda for the sugar, it tastes just as good and is wayyy less calories.
