Introduction: Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino Recipe

About: Community Manager of Instructables - I am powered by rainbow and sugar!

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 :)

Supplies

Step 1: Supplies

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

Ingredients:

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

Utensils:

  • 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.

Step 3: Enjoy

More final shots as usual :)

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