This is my FAVORITE Starbucks drink!
There can be 10 inches of snow on the ground and I still crave this icy drink!
But we all know that these little Starbucks drinks are $4 a pop! So I was DELIGHTED to find that my oldest sister, Kristen, has discovered how to make these at home – bless her heart!
This is what older sisters are for right? lol!
So she whipped one up (actually two and she offered me thirds but who’s counting right?) and it was delicious!!!
Ingredients: 3/4 cup double-strength coffee, 3 tablespoons granulated sugar, 1 cup low-fat milk, 2 cups ice, 3 Tbls. Hershey’s Chocolate
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).
Then combine all the 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. Voila – enjoy!
Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino
3/4 cup double-strength coffee
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 cup low-fat milk
2 cups ice
3 Tbls. Hershey’s Chocolate
3 Tbs whipped cream
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.
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.
If you have one of these going in the blender you must invite me over – cause there’s enough for two you know? Enjoy!
