Homemade Starbucks Mocha

My husband loves frappuccinos so when I saw this recipe from Courtney from WomenLivingWell, I had to share it with you. I'm super-excited about making this! - Rejoicing in the Present

This is my FAVORITE Starbucks drink! There can be 10 inches of snow on the ground and I still crave this icy drink! But we all know that these little Starbucks drinks are $4 a pop! So I was DELIGHTED to find that my oldest sister, Kristen, has discovered how to make these at home – bless her heart! This is what older sisters are for right? lol!Last week, while the kids swam at her house – she whipped one up (actually two and she offered me thirds but who’s counting right?) and it was delicious!!! Here’s the recipe:
What you need...
3/4 cup double-strength coffee
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 cup low-fat milk
2 cups ice
3 Tbls. Hershey’s Chocolate
3 Tbs whipped cream
trade chocolate syrup for caramel copping to make a Caramel Frappuccino
What you do...
  1. Make double-strength coffee by brewing with twice the coffee required by your coffee maker(that should be 2 tablespoons of ground coffee per each cup of coffee). 
  2. Chill before using.
  3. Then combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend on high speed until ice is crushed and drink is smooth. 
  4. Pour into two 16-ounce glasses, and serve with a straw.

MOCHA Version:
For this version, add 3 tablespoons Hershey’s chocolate syrup to the original recipe and prepare as described. Top each glass with whipped cream, if desired.
CARAMEL Version:
For this version, add 3 tablespoons of caramel topping to the original recipe and prepare as described. Top each glass with whipped cream and drizzle additional caramel over the whipped cream.
If you have one of these going in the blender you must invite me over – cause there’s enough for two you know? Enjoy!
Walk with the King!
