Tasty Tuesday: Homemade Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino

In this tutorial I show you had to cut your budget and make a quick, easy, and delicious homemade Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino. #WomenLivingWell #frappuccino #icedcoffee #easydrinkrecipesThis 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!Last week, while the kids swam at her house – she whipped one up (actually two and she offered me thirds but who’s counting right?) and it was delicious!!! Here’s the recipe:

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

trade chocolate syrup for caramel copping to make a Caramel Frappuccino


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.

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.

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.

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.

  1. I'm so excited to try this out! Thanks for posting the recipe. And, it's so simple, I think I actually have everything that I need for this recipe! Hooray…may have to try it out this afternoon, in that case! 😉

    And thank you so, so much for your sweet comments on my website, Courtney. I appreciate the encouragement and support more that I can say! You made my day! 🙂

    By the way…the cleaning schedule that you shared- GENIUS! Love the alliteration! 🙂


  2. Oh my goodness! Is it really that simple?! I'll definitely be trying that tonight when my hubby gets home. We both LOVE this drink from Starbucks!

    Lately, we've been using a cappuccino mix and blending it with vanilla ice cream and milk to make shakes. But the Mocha Frap is MUCH better! 🙂

    Thank you SO much for sharing!!!!

  3. Thanks.:) This is my favorite drink at Starbucks to.:) Haven't been to starbucks in about a year now.:( Do not have one close enough. I live way in the country. The closest one is about 45 minutes away. Thanks again.:)

  4. Yum! Thanks for sharing your recipe. I need to get this down pat and memorized so I can make it any time I like.

  5. thank you so much for this. i will be trying the caramel one for my husband. i personally dont like any kind of coffee but my husband loves it and ive been waiting to recreate one at home to make him happy and save us alittle money in the meantime.

  6. I didn't even know I wanted one of these until you showed me. Lead me not into temptation, sister. 😉

  7. Sweet! You just made my day. I second the pregnancy craving and often cave into paying the $4 at Starbucks.

  8. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Just a suggestion: You might want to chill the coffee before mixing or make your ice cubes out of coffee. These steps prevent it from tasting watered down or getting melty too quickly.

  9. you just became my new best friend posting this recipe!!! I cannot wait to make this 🙂 thank you thank you!

  10. We recently moved to the country, and the nearest Starbucks is about 45 minutes away (I mean REALLY the country!). So not only is this a savings, it makes it possible for us to have these at all – absolutely going to pick up the chocolate and caramel toppings and enjoy these this weekend with my husband – he loves iced caramel lattes and I'm pretty sure I can take this recipe and tweak it a bit to come up with a good imitation.

  11. Yay!! Caramel Frapps are my FAVORITE!!!! But they don't fit in my budget anymore so this recipe is a lifesaver! Thank you!

  12. Hello, I will try this recipe!!!!
    and other I see on your blog (like the hawain meatloaf).

  13. Thanks so much for this. Once and awhile I indulge in the McDonalds version of this but even that one is expensive. I am making one of these this afternoon! What a special treat, thanks.

  14. I'm not sure if it's a good thing or not that I found this recipe…. I may be making these too often now! 🙂 Thanks for sharing…

  15. Thank you and your sister soooo much for this recipe!!!! I, too, love Starbucks Mocha Fraps but cannot afford one as often as I'd like. I will definately be putting this recipe to use!!!

  16. Ooooooh THANK YOU!!!! And I'm sure my husband will thank you when I surprise him with one tomorrow!

    He LOVES the Mocha Fraps …. and I always get the Caramel Frap. But, man they're pricey.

    This will be a VERY nice treat tomorrow!!

  17. Thank You for this one!!! I have my laptop on the kitchen counter with the blender right next to it ready to go. Yes, Courtney, thank you 🙂

  18. I know I asked for healthy recipes but ummm… YUMMY! lol Hey, it's all natural, right? I'm surprised that it never occurred to me to make these at home. Great idea, thanks!

  19. THANK YOU!! I am a college student. I love coffee, and drink it a lot when I'm studying, but it's so expensive. I think this will save my senior year 🙂

  20. Have no enough money to buy a house? Don’t worry, just because this is real to get the personal loans to resolve such problems. Thus take a collateral loan to buy all you need.

  21. I tried it, it was very good but I added much more chocolate to it. And I used a double strength k cup coffee blend from my Keurig.

  22. Me and my son love star bucks , so i was so happy when I found this site. Just made this it was amazing! Instead of chocolate I use Carmel !

  23. I LOVE Frappuccino’s and I have been looking for a good recipe for a while and this one tastes amazing! Thanks for posting!

  24. I just made this- I didn’t have much chocolate syrup so I used 1-2tsp of syrup and added around a tablespoon of cocoa powder. I didn’t add any sugar- it was still yummy 🙂

  25. Thanks for posting this! A little tip – if you want it to taste even more authentic, use 3 Tbls of sweetened condensed milk instead of the sugar! 😉
