Especially on a warm summer day, it’s hard not to fall in love with the refreshing and rich taste of chocolate chip frappuccinos, but what isn’t always so enticing is the price of buying them. With the high costs of purchasing these delicious drinks at competitors like Starbucks and Biggby Coffee, it’s easy to feel frustrated when you you can’t afford to satisfy that craving for an extra kick of caffeine as often as you would like. Luckily, it only takes a few simple ingredients to create a chocolate chip frappuccino in your own kitchen that can be just as delicious as the professional ones!
What You Will Need
- Measuring Cup
Ingredients (for one drink):
- ½ cup of milk (whole, reduced fat, or skim)
- ½ packet of hot chocolate
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 1 cup of chocolate chips
- 1 ½ tablespoons of chocolate syrup
- 12 ice cubes
- ⅛ spoon of vanilla extract
- ½ cup brewed coffee
- whipped cream (optional)
Note: If you feel like adding more of any ingredient listed for extra sweetness, that is perfectly alright!
Gather your ingredients together. If it’s easier to organize everything you will need, feel free to put them into bowls. There is no certain brand of product or ingredients that you need; any version works!
Put all the ingredients in the blender, in no particular order, and turn it on for about 30 seconds — or until all ice and ingredients are blended well.
Pour the now-made frappuccino into a glass or a plastic cup of your choice!
If you love whipped cream, top the frappe with a nice cloud of it, and for a little extra chocolate, take the chocolate syrup and drizzle it on the top.
Step 4: Enjoy!
Now that you’ve made your own chocolate chip frappuccino for only a fraction of the cost, you can save some extra money and have a way to make these delicious drinks in your own home. Feel free to share this recipe with your friends. Not only is making your own frappuccino cool and tasty, it’s also tons of fun!
