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


At Roasty Coffee, we love a good dynamic duo. Think peanut butter and jelly, Batman and Robin, and…chocolate and coffee?

Yep! We think these two make a delightful pair, and it shouldn’t surprise anyone that they go together so well, considering many coffee bean blends have flavor profiles that boast notes of chocolatey goodness. Our appreciation for this coupling explains why we love a good mocha frappuccino so much.


In 1994, Starbucks Coffee trademarked the term frappuccino to refer to their line of blended iced coffee drinks, and since then, the delicious mocha frappuccino has been a customer favorite.

Mocha sauce, coffee, milk, and ice cubes join forces to create a smooth, creamy drink enjoyed by many, and now, thanks to our recipe, you can enjoy an easy-to-make mocha frappuccino from the comfort of your own home.

Since it’s a cold drink, try it as a midday pick-me-up on a hot summer afternoon, or sip on this Starbucks copycat drink when your sweet tooth needs satisfying.


Frozen Mocha Frappuccino Recipe


  • 1 1/2 cups of ice
  • 1 cup of chilled brewed coffee
  • 1/3 cup of heavy cream or 2 percent milk
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • Whipped cream
  • Chocolate syrup
  • Blender


Step 1:

Brew your java! Any coffee drink is only as good as the coffee used, so make sure you’re using a high-quality blend in this copycat recipe. The fresher the coffee, the better it will be, so if you can, use freshly ground beans.

Since you’re making a cold beverage, you’ll want to leave the brewed coffee in the refrigerator for a few minutes, or if you want an extra boost of energy and have it on-hand, use cold brew.

Chilled Espresso

Step 2:

Add your coffee, heavy cream (or milk, if you’d prefer), sugar, and ice to your blender, and pulse until the mixture is smooth and creamy. If you want something thicker with a more milkshake-like consistency, add a half cup more of ice.

Blender Ingredients

Step 3:

Next, you’ll need to get your drink ready for serving. Presentation is everything, after all. Drizzle chocolate syrup around the sides of your glass; not only does this make your frappuccino look pretty, but it also gives you the sweet mocha flavor you’re after.

Step 4:

Pour the blended coffee mixture into the glass, and top it with a dollop of whipped cream, and finish the whole thing off with a drizzle of chocolate syrup. Some say less is more while others say the more, the merrier; either way, add your toppings to your liking!

Chocolate With Whipped Cream


The delightful little mocha frappuccino has made quite the name for itself in the coffee world, quickly becoming a fan-favorite soon after its introduction and maintaining its status for years following. And now, with this simple recipe, you can make and enjoy this blended coffee drink from the comfort of your own home.

Happy Caffeinating!
