Mocha Madness: Tired of High-Priced Coffee Houses?

The Rundown

I don't know about you guys, but everyday trips to the coffeehouse break my bank, and with rising prices, a lot of you guys feel the same way. Whether you drink Seattle Freezes or mocha frappuccinos, we are all feeling the pain. I have had the privilege of working in an indie coffee house for a while. I want to relieve some of your pain and provide you with an awesome mocha frappuccino recipe that will knock your socks off!

Ready in: 5 min
Yields: If you follow this recipe, a blender-full

You Need These Ingredients

  • 4 oz Chocolate Syrup, Dark or Milk

Here Are Your Instructions

  2. Scoop the ice cream into the blender.
  3. Put ice on top.

How to Make Stovetop Espresso Without a Machine

Why Not Regular Coffee?

The reason we use espresso is that a very small amount packs a huge caffeinated punch. It's far more powerful than regular coffee and is necessary to produce a coffee taste in such a big mixture. Certainly, you can substitute regular coffee, but you'll need more of it to get a strong flavor. That will make your Frappuccino runnier, so adjust your solid ingredients to make up for this.

Chocolate Is love

Different Syrups for Different Folks

In my coffeehouse, we use a special chocolate syrup that is handcrafted by a sweet old lady named Betty. It is not as sweet as regular syrup as it is made of dark chocolate. The darker the chocolate, the less sweet and more savory the mixture will be. I personally love the less sweet version, because the vanilla ice cream makes it plenty sweet already.

Healthy Not So Much

The fact that this recipe is stuffed with ice cream and chocolate means that it is not a healthy alternative whatsoever. I drink these in moderation. They are perfect in the summer after a long day of house-painting and hard labor. The fact that they are so unhealthy means that they are also impossibly delicious!! So enjoy with care!
