Recipe by: Alice Currah
Step 1: What You'll Need
Coffee (of your choice, french roast is what I use)
(Chocolate Syrup and Whipped Cream are both optional)
You'll also need:
an Espresso Maker or Coffee Maker (it tastes better with actual espresso)
That's all! Easy enough right?
Step 2: Blend the Ice
Measure 11/2 cups ice and put it in the blender. Blend on high until the ice is broken up.
Step 3: Measure the Milk
Measure 3/4 cup milk and set it aside (later on you'll mix the espresso with the milk).
Step 4: Start the Espresso
You'll be making two shots of espresso, so fill the filter up to the two shot marker. Then put the right amount of water in for two shots (there should be a marker on the side of the espresso cup). Turn the espresso maker on, and wait for it to heat up. If you don't have an espresso maker, then brew 3/4 of very strong coffee.
Step 5: Mix the Espresso With the Milk
Now pour the freshly made espresso in with the milk, and pour that into the blender with the crushed ice.
Step 6: Measure the Sugar
Measure 2-3 tbs sugar, and pour it into the blender. I prefer 2 tbs, but if you like your coffee sweet go with 3 tbs.
Step 7: Add Flavorings
Use a little flavoring for a flavored frappuccino.
vanilla or vanilla coffee syrup = vanilla frappuccino
chocolate syrup = mocha frappuccino
Step 8: Blend!
Blend it for 30-45 seconds.
Step 9: Prepare the Glass
While the blender is going you can get your glass ready. Put a squirt of chocolate syrup in the bottom of the glass, and roll it around to coat the bottom edge of the glass. After your done, shut off the blender, and pour the frappuccino into your glass.
Step 10: Garnish and Enjoy!
Now top it of with a swirl of whipped cream, and garnish with chocolate syrup. Now sit back and enjoy sipping on your irresistibly tasty frappuccino!
