Introduction: Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino Recipe

Picture of Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino Recipe

It's Christmastime! Do you know what that means? Candy canes and peppermint candies! The Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino is available at Starbucks, so I took a stab at making at home. It was really easy to recreate and came out pretty tasty [especially considering I'm not the hugest fan of minty (and pepperminty) things]!

You can also think of this as a York Peppermint Patty Frappuccino or an Andes Mint Frappuccino or anything that has peppermint and chocolate :)

Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies

This recipe is a single serving and makes about the 16oz Grande size from Starbucks.


Non-caffeinated Version:

Replace coffee with more milk (Half & Half or whipping cream)

Topping Suggestions:

  • Starbucks says they use dark chocolate curls. I don't like dark chocolate so I used a peeler to make chocolate curls from a Hershey bar (I've never done this before and the curls didn't want to stay curled so mine is actually topped with like chocolate shavings).
  • Chocolate sauce
  • Mashed up candy cane or peppermint candies


  • Blender - I use a Magic Bullet at home, it's great for making individual drinks
  • Ice cube trays - small ice cubes make for even easier blending
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Cups for serving
  • Reusable Straws

Step 2: Mix It

You know the drill by now. Mash it all up in the blender.

Then top it however you would like.

from my experience, if you warm up the chocolate a little before peeling- the curls come out bigger and nicer :)

Thanks for the advice :)
