I don’t usually have syrups here at home to use for sweetening, so instead I use vanilla extract to add to the flavor if I’m just making a mocha frappuccino, or I use real peanut butter for a simply divine peanut butter frappuccino! You can also use cinnamon, almond extract or any other kind of extract you may have on hand.
This is a great recipe to use as a base for any flavor mocha frappuccino you want to make. Here are a couple tips:
- Use cold coffee! Hot coffee will melt the ice and make it thin. Then you’ll have to add more ice, then the flavor will be diluted and you’ll end up with too much, etc… Use cold coffee ;). You can make coffee ahead of time to keep in the fridge, or you can add a little cold milk to it and set it in the freezer for a bit to cool it off. Keeping cold coffee in the refrigerator is definitely a time saver though.
- Make sure to blend for at least 30 seconds so you don’t end up with chunks of ice. If your blender isn’t that great, then you’ll want to blend longer.
Let’s get this coffee party started…
(There are a couple affiliate links to Amazon.com in the recipe, but they are both products that I use or have used and highly recommend. Plus they are a pretty decent price on Amazon if you can’t find them in a grocery store)
