I have a slight, okay, fairly hardcore addiction to McDonald’s Mocha Frappe’s.  They. Are. SO. Good!!  There’s one thing I don’t like though… they can be pricey!

MY LATEST RECIPES

A cheapskate at heart, I just can’t justify spending $4 each time I get a craving… so I went on a mission to find out how to make them at home.  And succeeded!  I can’t take credit though… I found a recipe on Pinterest that seemed just about perfect.  The recipe comes from Sweet Pennies From Heaven!

So frothy, so icy, so creamy, and SOOOO full of chocolate and coffee flavor!  There’s a secret to getting that perfect flavor/frozen texture… and I’ll share it with you.

Frozen. Coffee.

Oh yes, that’s right.  Just brew up some of your favorite coffee (or even decaf if you prefer), and let it cool to room temperature.  Pour the cooled coffee into ice cube trays and pop them in the freezer until frozen.

So you might be wondering, “why can’t I just use regular coffee and add ice cubes??“.  Well, in short, you can lol.  But as the ice melts, it will water down your drink 🙁  Boo!!  So by freezing the coffee into ice cubes, you get the frozen component to make it nice and icy, but without diluting your drink!

I really love the mocha flavor in these, but if you prefer a caramel flavor, you can easily swap out the chocolate syrup for a caramel sauce.  Feel free to do this with any flavor combo you want!

This recipe makes about 5 cups or so, and can easily be doubled if you’re making these for a crowd.  The mint is really nice as a garnish, but you could add some peppermint extract to make this a festive holiday peppermint mocha drink!

These frappes really hit the spot on a hot day… so once the weather starts to warm up, you’ll have a great way to cool down!

  1. I tried your recipe for the first time tonight and it’s amazing!! Everybody in my house loves it! I altered the recipe just a bit by adding a little extra ice because using just the frozen coffee cubes, the texture for me wasn’t icy enough. But it’s awesome and I’ll definitely be telling all my mocha frappe loving friends all about this recipe!! Thank you!! ❤️

  2. Instead of almond milk and chocolate I used chocolate almond milk

  4. If I want to make just one glass how many ice cubes will it take

  5. Good news ..good news…I do not have to buy my frappe anymore.
    Plus, the leftover coffee in my coffeepot is not going down the drain anymore (which used to happen to me quite often:-()
    The combination of Chocolate syrup and coffee is very much tempting and I have already brewed full pot coffee to start with. Can not wait any longer.
    Thanks in advance.

  6. Made this for my husband who is a MacDonald frappe mocha addict. He said it is spot on. No more trips to the golden arches.

  7. What is a “cup scant”?

    • Hi there 🙂 My apologies, the coding was inverting the words… it’s supposed to be a scant cup (which is slightly less than the full amount). I’ve updated the recipe so it shows it correctly 🙂

  8. It looks so delicious. I’m definitely going to try this. Wish me best of luck 🙂

  9. I just love like idea. It looks very delicious. The recipe is very easy so i will definitely try it.

  10. Just popping in to let you know I’ve included your copycat mocha frappe recipe in my round-up of iced coffee recipes on Taste As You Go. Thanks for contributing!

  11. Wonderful recipes…. I used to buy frappe and frozen coffees but after reading these recipes, I will obviously try these making at home instead of heading to a coffee shop…… Thank you for sharing….

  12. I love freezing any leftover coffee from the morning’s coffee pot and then using them to make easy iced coffees or smoothies! 🙂 And I love a good Starbucks copycat recipe! Looks delicious!

  13. Oh my goodness! I cannot wait to try this!

  14. I have to give up my frappe-habit – I will definitely try this instead!!

  15. I don’t buy frappe anymore! It’s the best made at home! Love it!

  16. This Frappe is calling my name!! It looks amazing!

  17. SO EXCITED! I am with you. I cannot believe the cost of these drinks. Yours looks way better and I know what is going into it 🙂

  18. I LOVE frappes!!

  19. I am loving the idea of making coffee flavoured ice cubes, I never have tried that before!

    • I made a frappe tonight. I used frozen coffee cubes – made from strong instant. I put about 4-5 cubes, 2-3 regular cubes, 2 scoops of Sweet n’Low, squirt of chocolate syrup, 1/2 cup skim milk. I left off the extra whipped cream – but did hit it again with a drop of chocolate syrup and dusted that with crushed instant coffee. DELICIOUS. And, only 110 calories! (1/2 c skim = 45; chocolate syrup 1 Tbls = 50) <~need to find a sugar free syrup . . . add calories if you add the whipped cream. It hit the spot and leaves you satisfied. (one serving) 🙂

      • Hershey’s has a sugar-free chocolate syrup now. I saw it today while I was at the store buying syrup to make this recipe with.

        • I LOVE Hershey’s chocolate, but I bought a bottle of their sugar free chocolate syrup and it was DISGUSTING!!! I honestly don’t see how they can even put their name on it! Did I get a bad bottle? It was awful! Tasted like some kind of weird chemical!…not that I make a habit of eating/drinking weird chemicals.😝

      • Omg I used ur version of this recipe and it was perfect. I used whole milk and real sugar but it finally turned out perfect! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
