Frappuccino Recipe (including Baileys version)
A Frappuccino is my favorite afternoon pick me up. I never knew though, just how easy it would be to make my own! Let me show ya’ how to make a Frappuccino right at home. Plus, we’re making a boozy version with Bailey’s Irish Creme.
Have you ever made something like this before? Or do you stick to letting the experts take care of it? This definitely isn’t our first hand at homemade coffee recipes. We have several other yummy options you should try after this one. Down below I picked out my favorites for you I think you’ll love.
I was so excited when I mastered this recipe. What I didn’t realize in all the years that I was buying Mocha Frappuccinos at coffee shops, was that it took just 5 simple ingredients that I actually already had in my kitchen. Am I the only one that didn’t know that? Here is what you will need.
(full amounts in recipe box below)
- Coffee – any kind you like, but freshly brewed and cooled.
- Milk – or half and half, if you prefer.
- Sugar – of course!
- Fudge Sauce – the kind you’ll find in the ice cream section.
- Ice – notes on ice below.
For The Boozy Version:
- Cold Coffee
- Coffee Flavored Ice Cream
- Bailey’s Irish Creme
How To Make a Frappuccino
To make our afternoon pick-me-up, I usually use my leftover morning coffee. We almost never make it through the whole pot and by the time I need some for this recipe, it has definitely cooled. It works perfectly.
This is super simple: just put your ingredients in a blender and pulse until you have the consistency you like.
The only thing you’ll want to adjust is the amount of ice. The more ice, the more frothy the drink. You can continue adding ice until you are happy with it.
How To Make A Frappe with Baileys
The big difference here, besides the booze of course, is that we add ice cream to this recipe. Ice cream makes it super creamy and adds yummy flavor.
Just like the one before, we simply add the ingredients (exact measurements below in the recipe box) to a blender and blend.
For both drinks, you can add a dollop of whipped cream and a little chocolate sauce for presentation.
Once you begin making your own Frappuccino at home you won’t be able to stand the thought of handing over $5 to a barista to do something so easy for you. It’s a total game-changer!
