Starbucks Frappuccino (Frozen)
This frozen coffee drink was an instant hit when introduced in 1995 at the Seattle-based coffee house chain. Customers found the drink to be a great-tasting, new way to get their caffeine buzz. And now it can be “dooped” at home — as long as you have a blender, some cold coffee, and a few other simple ingredients lying around. Here is the TSR clone of the original coffee version of the drink, and a newer version of the recipe made by adding caramel.
1 1/2 cups cold coffee
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon chocolate syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups crushed ice or ice cubes
1. Combine the coffee, milk, sugar, chocolate syrup and salt in a blender and mix on medium speed for 15 seconds to dissolve sugar.
2. Add the vanilla extract and ice then blend on high speed until smooth and creamy. Stir with a spoon if necessary to help blend.
3. Pour drink into two 16-ounce glasses. (www.topsecretrecipes.com)
Makes 2 large drinks.
For this version, add 2 tablespoons of caramel syrup to the recipe above and prepare as described. Top each glass with whipped cream and drizzled caramel.
