  • 1 cup strong coffee made ahead of time and very cold
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 cups ice
  • ½ cup chocolate syrup
  • cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Optional garnish is whipped cream and mini chocolate chips


  • Make sure that the coffee is well chilled, or it will just melt the ice and the drink will not thicken up. I like to put the coffee and milk into the freezer while I am measuring and assembling the other ingredients.
  • Place chilled coffee, milk, ice, chocolate syrup and chocolate chips into the blender.
  • Blend until smooth. (The chocolate chips can be sneaky - stir it up once or twice to make sure they are blending.)
  • Drizzle about 1 Tablespoon of the chocolate sauce onto the inside of each of your 2 serving glasses.
  • Pour the drink into serving glasses and garnish as desired.


Tips For The BEST Copycat Frappuccino
Use a dark roast coffee for this drink and brew it stronger than you would for a regular cup of coffee. Or you can use your favorite cold brew coffee.
Use very cold coffee and milk for the best cold and frothy Frappuccino. The colder, the better! I like to put them in the freezer while measuring the other ingredients, so they are very chilled.
When you blend the drink, stop to stir it a few times. This will ensure the chocolate chips are blended into the drink and not at the bottom when you serve it.
When you add the chocolate to the glasses, drizzle down the inside side of the glass. If you’re feeling fancy, turn the glass while drizzling to create a swirled pattern.
Mocha Frappuccino: Skip the chocolate chips and add your desired amount of chocolate sauce to the blender with the other ingredients to make a chocolate coffee drink. I like a few tablespoons. Garnish with whipped cream, shaved dark chocolate, or mini chocolate chips.
Vanilla Java Chip: Make the coffee Frappuccino as instructed, but add a tablespoon or so of vanilla syrup when you blend the ingredients.
Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino: Skip the chocolate syrup and chocolate chips and add some pumpkin spice syrup when you blend the other ingredients. Garnish with whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin spice.
