How to Make a Starbucks Frappuccino at Home

by Leanne Borrowman

A tried and tested method to get a home made Frappaccino that tastes like the Starbucks real thing!


  • Milk
  • Ice (cup full)
  • 1 Starbucks Arabica bean instant coffee
  • 1 Tablespoon Chocolate drink mix (for mocha)
  • 4 Teaspoons Honey or Syrup
  • Blender!
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    This is my tried and tested method to create a home made Frappaccino that tastes as close as possible to the Starbucks shop bought alternative. If your an addict like me, this will save you money!

    Step 2

    Firstly... This only works with the official Starbucks instant coffee! Take it from a veteran, every other coffee blend sucks! I recommend the Italian Roast Blend.

    Step 3

    Grab your ingredients, ice and the glass you will be using to drink from...

    Step 4

    Fill your glass with Ice. This will stop you from waisting too much and give you a fool proof estimate.

    Step 5

    Add milk to your ice filled glass. This is enough for one person. Measure an additional glass per person.

    Step 6

    Add to blender...

    Step 7

    And the rest of your ingredients. For each additional person, add another sachet of coffee, glass of ice/milk and tea spoon of chocolate drink mix.

    Step 8

    Blend for Ice/medium speed (depending on your blender type)

    Step 9

    Blend until it looks creamy.

    Step 10

    Add a straw and pile on the pounds!

    Step 11

    If you are looking to create more of a Starbucks store blended Frapp, rather than the stronger bottled kind, simply add an additional glass of ice and chocolate syrup... Plus squirty cream if desired!
