Indulge in this frozen drink a few hours before bedtime—it gets its flavor from strong brewed coffee. Make a big batch of this homemade coffee treat and we guarantee that this will replace your drive-through drip addiction.

How to Make It

Step 1

Stir together coffee, sugar, and 1 tablespoon milk in a small glass measuring cup. Pour into ice cube trays, and freeze at least 2 hours or until firm.

Step 2

Process coffee ice cubes, 1 1/4 cups milk, and chocolate syrup in a blender until smooth. Dollop evenly with whipped topping, and sprinkle with chocolate shavings. Serve immediately.

Chef's Notes

To make strong brewed coffee, use 3 tablespoons coffee grounds to 1 cup water.

This recipe was amazing! Really easy, too. It's festive and it tastes great, except it needs a little more chocolate than the recipe calls for.

All I have to say is YUM and just as good as any coffee house! I did use 1/2 the sugar, b/c I don't like my coffee too sweet and with addition of the chocolate syrup, it would've been way too sweet for me and my girls.

AWESOME! AWESOME! Really easy to make and tastes better than any coffee shop frappe. And way less expensive too. Tried the caramel but was out of mocha. Will be trying all kinds of flavors including hazelnut! Thanks again.

I've tried several mocha frappe recipes, and this one is by far the best. It provides the perfect amount of "slushiness" and it tastes great. Now I can put that $5 that I would've spent at Starbucks elsewhere. Thank you thank you thank you!
