Those who know me well, know that I am addicted to coffee. Starbucks Frappuccinos to be exact. In my Frap Attack Part 1 post I shared my recipe for Jacob's favorite a Double Chocolaty Chip Frap. Lately I've been working on my own favorites, Mocha Coconut and Mocha Frap. I am happy to share probably the easiest recipe I could come up with. The trick is to use International Delights Iced Coffee. I had been reading about this coffee on several blogs so I thought I would give it a try. I love it! Even just poured over ice it's the perfect drink to start my day, be my mid morning snack, accompany lunch, and to enjoy after work.
The first Frap I made was a Vanilla Mocha. I filled my Starbucks "grande" cup 1/2 full with ice, then filled it up with Vanilla Iced Coffee. I dumped the contents in my blender and poured in Hershey Syrup. No measurement, I just poured. Then I hit blend and enjoyed. The whole process took just a few minutes.
My 2nd Frap was a Mocha Coconut. For this I used the Mocha flavored iced coffee. I also choose to use coconut drink rather then coconut syrup. I wanted to try to up the nutritional value of my drink. So again I filled my cup 1/2 full with ice, then I used about 2/3 coffee and a little less them 1/3 coconut drink. For a strong coconut taste you will need to add more coconut drink. Throw it in the blender, blend and enjoy. This also took very little time to make. Actually cleaning the blender probably took longer.
Now I'm not going to say these are perfect Starbucks knockoffs. Starbucks has a secret that I'm still trying to find. These drinks are a fun, tasty and of course economical way to enjoy a daily treat. I hope you enjoy these recipes and feel free to share your favorite Frap recipes.
