Jeanne's Homemade Mocha Frappe

Jeanne Gliddon


The first time that I had a Mocha Frappe from a well known fast food restaurant I fell in love! The flavor of coffee and chocolate had me hooked from the start and I had to learn how to make them. A Frappe Machine was purchased and a recipe was found but when I made the drink it wasn't anything like the one I had been consuming. So I took the recipe and started tweaking it over and over but couldn't quite reach perfection. Then one day, after months of trying, I did reach perfection. Although what I achieved does not taste the same as my inspiration, it is close enough to please everyone!

1 to 2


15 Min


No-Cook or Other



2 c
1 c
non-fat dry milk powdered
1 c
powdered non-dairy creamer
1/3 c
baking cocoa
1/4 tsp
1/2 c
3 Tbsp
dark coffee like a good french roast plus enough milk to equal 1/2 cup (decaffe can be used)
1 Tbsp
chocolate sauce
2 1/2 c
ice with an additional 1 cup later in process

Directions Step-By-Step

Mix first 5 ingredients and place in an air tight container. The Dry Mocha Frappe Mix will be good for one year.
More power to you if you have a Frappe Machine but if not you can use a blender. Hopefully the blender will have a Frappe button on it. The directions will incorporate both appliances when necessary.
Brew 3 Tablespoons coffee in 1/2 cup water in Frappe Machine or your coffee maker. You will end up with about 1/3 cup of coffee after it is brewed so you want to add enough milk to equal 1/2 cup.
Take 2/3 cup of the Mocha Frappe Dry Mix and place in blender of choice. Add 1 Tablespoon Chocolate Sauce and the 1/2 cup brewed coffee and milk.
If using a Frappe machine, add ice cubes up to the max line. If using a blender, add approx. 2 1/2 cups ice cubes. Put top on container and place on appliance. Push the blend button on Frappe machine or the Frappe button on Blender and blend until ice is pretty well broken up.
Stir mixture and add more ice cubes up to and a little bit higher than the maximum level line on the Frappe machine or an additional 1 cup of ice cubes to the blender. At this point you will blend and stir, blend and stir and blend and stir until the mixture begins to swirl around on its own and you will see a lighter line rise from the bottom.
Keep blending, without stopping, until the lighter line rises to the top and the mixture is all one color. When this happens you have reached the right consistency which is similar to a milkshake.
Pour into your serving glass(es) and top with the Whipped Topping and drizzle with the Chocolate Sauce. Serve with straw.
I use our insulated glasses that keeps the Frappe from melting quickly but any large glass will work. Makes one large or two smaller servings.

This process may take a little practice but I promise you, it is well worth the effort!
