Introduction: Frappuccino on a Stick

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
  • Milk
  • Sugar
  • Cream (optional)
  • Popsicle trays or small cups and sticks
  • Chocolate syrup (for mocha frappuccino)
To kick things off, brew up some double-strength coffee or espresso!

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.

Step 3: Make the Frappe-uccino

Ok, I admit I'm still a little baffled by the term frappuccino, but I think I get it.  It's part frappe, part cappuccino.  Except there's no ice cream in it.  Which makes no sense unless you assume it to be derived from the Greek etomology for frape, meaning iced coffee.  So. . .  In my opinion, it's more like a frozen cappuccino, which I guess would make it a Froccino, which may do more to elicit images of bold hairstyles and the people who wear them drinking cappuccino, than a creamy, frothy, ubersweet drink. 

I wish  I had that picture of my dad when he had an afro.  I would so photoshop him drinking a froccino. 

Right.  So, mix your strong coffee or espresso with milk and sugar.  I like this ratio:

4 parts coffee : 4 parts milk : 1 part sugar

or 1 cup coffee, 1 cup milk and 1/4 cup sugar

Add some chocolate syrup to your liking for mocha frappuccino. 

If you have sticks that come with your popsicle mold, use those.  I thought mine looked dumb, so I used some stirrers generously provided by the friendly folks at *$s.  In order to keep them upright, I wrapped the top of the molds with plastic and stuck the sticks in through little slit.


Step 4: Ice Ice Baby!

After they're good and frozen, your frappuccinos on sticks are ready to enjoy!  Running a little warm water over the base of the mold will help them release cleanly.  

Wasn't that easy? (And delicious!!)

bitterbug (author)JMccles2011-09-06

So I suppose you go to all the "make a gun out of X" instructables to say the same thing?

crak-a-bottle (author)JMccles2010-10-18

I'm ghetto (in that I'm cheap and like to reuse or use random objects in place of other objects) so for anyone out there without a mould and sticks, I used shot glasses (both the tall/skinny and the short/wide kinds, it looked cool with the variations) with plastic spoons (the large spoon part that you use to eat with being IN the popsicle, and the handle being the handle) and it worked wonderfully :) Some of the skinny shot glasses were a bit to tin for the spoon to fit, so I cut down the spoons on the side and gave them a quick sand so there's no jagged edges and it was wonderful. :):):) Hope this helps any janky-crafters like me :D

That there is one lucky popsicle...

rawknexstuff (author)2010-09-27

I love frappuccinos, but they are pretty expensive. I can't find anything to use as a stick, so I just drank it! Thanks for the great instructible! Five stars!

Silver Buttons (author)2010-08-22

Too bad I gave away my Popsicle molds. These look delicious! I guess I could use paper cups, with chopsticks cut in half. =]

Buttons, your pic is so cute it makes ma head hurt! LOL

Thanks! Found the picture in a Google search and couldn't resist nabbing it.

dianaw (author)Silver Buttons2010-08-23

they have them at the dollar store sometimes- and Michaels had some too- you only get 2 for a dollar at Michaels but they are larger sized- like a creamsicle size. Michaels and dollar stores have popsickle stix too- a couple of different sizes. And of course, yeah cups work... and you aren't spending money.

dianaw (author)2010-08-23

YUM! I just did something similar called Vietnamese coffee pops that I got online somewhere. BBasically just strong espresso coffee with condensed milk- which is sweetened. Its goooood.

lobotomy_leftovers (author)2010-08-22

I think term "frappuccino" is made up of "fr-" from frozen and "-appuccino" from cappuccino. Just my thought from holding a menu advertising "frozen cappuccino" and my thumb covered part of each word.

Oh. Hey, yeah, I bet you're right. XD

squishoso (author)2010-08-23

Nice idea and sexy and suggestive lips! XD Your awesome!

Mr.Sanchez (author)2010-08-23

Looks yummy...the frapp too.

beckymcmath (author)2010-08-22

OMG these look heavenly. I adore iced coffee, and with our local weatherman proclaiming, "We tied the heat record today, but it'll be even warmer tomorrow!" a batch of these is DEF in order. Can't wait to try them!

water rat (author)2010-08-22

That picture is so hilariously obscene! I love it (and I'm a straight girl!) I loves the k9's too :)

Kaiven (author)2010-08-19

I've never had coffee... so how should I rate this? :P I'll give a star for the pictures, a star for the instructions, a star for the idea, a star for the grammar and spelling, and a star for the author, eh? :D

scoochmaroo (author)Kaiven2010-08-19


flattery will get you everywhere

Kaiven (author)scoochmaroo2010-08-20

Good to know :)

JohnJY (author)2010-08-19

Naughty, naughty! My dad loves frozen ice of coffee, for his cold coffees, so this is great! Thanks, but also, naughty, naughty. Haha...

ZackBlack (author)2010-08-19

Scooch you brat! You've done it again! Might I add that the first picture of you enjoying your homemade confection is somewhat - um - shall I say suggestive... It's why I called you a brat because I assume it was on purpose! ;)

scoochmaroo (author)ZackBlack2010-08-19

That picture was chosen by committee!

FireBud9 (author)2010-08-19

Can't wait to try!!! looks yummy.

Bokiniki (author)2010-08-19

Entomology means " study of insects", I suppose you ment etymology. tHanks for the instructable!

scoochmaroo (author)Bokiniki2010-08-19

I thought so too! But when I looked it up, it said entymology was the study of words! I need to double check my sources. Thanks!!

CodeKid1001 (author)scoochmaroo2010-08-19

Actually, etymology means the study of where words came from, and how they came to be. Fedelity Bankis saying that you can trust it because the word fidelity ids derived from the Latin word "feder" meaning trust. that is the word's etymology. BTW awesome instructible.
