Starbucks gave us the Frappuccino.
I give you: Frappuccino on a STICK - the next best thing to happen to a coffee drink!
The frappuccino is a super sweet, creamy, strong coffee drink blended with ice.
I know, I looked it up. Seems like a perfect vehicle for a frozen treat!
Besides, what better way is there to control your daily intake of frappuccino calories than to make it yourself? And freeze it. And put it on a stick. (brain freeze naturally prevents over-consumption!)
Follow this super simple frappuccino recipe to whip up a batch of your own frappuccinos on sticks. They're yummier than you might think! And if you're more of a mocha frappuccino person, we can help you with that too.
Step 1: Ingredients
What you need to pull off this trick:
- Strong coffee or espresso
- Cream (optional)
- Popsicle trays or small cups and sticks
- Chocolate syrup (for mocha frappuccino)
Step 2: Froth up the Whip
Frappuccinos come with something called "whip" on top. I know because I've heard the friendly *$s baristas ask customers if they "want that with whip." I took this to be some kind of whipped cream. To simulate "whip," I mixed up some heavy whipping cream with a bit of sugar. You can use milk instead. If you don't have an immersion blender, a whisk will do.
Fill the tops of your popsicle molds with a little bit of whip and freeze. This will give your frappuccino a nice topping of whip when it's done.
If you're someone who says"no thanks" when the friendly barista offers you "whip," you may skip this part.
