Delicious Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino Recipe

Itching for Starbucks without the hassle of leaving home? Recreate one of the franchise’s iconic Frappuccinos, the Mocha Cookie Crumble, in your kitchen with this simple recipe.

Just so you know, if you click on a product on and decide to buy it, we may earn a small commission.

In its early days, the Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino was only available at Starbucks Coffee for a limited time. But thanks to popular demand, the icy blended coffee drink landed a permanent spot on the franchise’s menu.

The Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino saves the day when a plain Mocha Frappuccino isn’t enough to hit the spot. Oreo sandwich cookie crumbs add an extra layer of chocolate goodness you didn’t even know you needed. If you’ve got about five minutes to spare, a blender, and a few simple ingredients, you can replicate this — one of Starbucks’s most popular Frappuccino recipes — from the comfort of your kitchen.

I don’t drink Frappuccinos very much — I’m a big flat white fan these days — but when I do have one, it’ll be a Mocha Cookie Crumble. I can’t call myself an expert on the decadent dessert drink, but I know what it tastes like. Trust me when I tell you it’s possible to make a super similar one from the comfort of your home.

You’ll Need

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup strong coffee
  • 4 tablespoons chocolate syrup
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 8 crushed chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 1 to 2 cups ice cubes
  • Whipped cream
  • Blender

The Process

Step One

Start by brewing your favorite coffee. Drip, espresso, cold brew coffee — it doesn’t matter what you use as long as it’s fresh. So, you may consider grinding the beans for your brew yourself. The fresher the grounds, the more flavorful the coffee; it doesn’t get too much fresher than grinding the beans just before brewing.

Brewed Espresso

Step Two

Add the crushed cookies (save a few crumbs, as you’ll need them later), chocolate chips, milk, chocolate syrup, and coffee to the blender. Pulse until the mixture is smooth.

Feel free to use whatever kind of milk you like est. Whether you use whole milk or go the vegan-friendly route, the Mocha Cookie Crumble will still be creamy and delicious.

FYI, I did some digging and discovered from a current Redditor and previous Starbucks employee that the original Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccinos contained vanilla. Why they no longer do, I don’t know. But a bit of vanilla syrup could be a nice touch, so feel free to pour some into the blender, too.

Cookie Ingredients

Step Three

When the mixture is blended evenly, add ice. Blend until the mixture thickens.

Remember, how much ice you use determines how thick your Frappuccino will be. Use that info to decide whether one cup or two is best.

Blended Frappuccino

Step Four

Pour your blended coffee drink into a tall glass. Then, finish it off with a whipped cream and cookie-crumble topping. You can also add a drizzle of chocolate syrup for extra sweetness!

Can the Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino Be vegan?

Yes, you can modify the recipe to be vegan-friendly!

The keys to a vegan Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino recipe are:

  • Using a vegan chocolate syrup. Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup is a great choice, as it contains no dairy or other animal products.
  • Using a dairy-free milk alternative. Our recipe calls for regular milk, but feel free to sub in something vegan-friendly, like soy or oat milk.
  • Selecting vegan chocolate sandwich cookies.
  • Ditching the whipped cream topping.
