My Very Own Mocha Frappy Coffee

We do not live anywhere close to a Starbucks.  I know! You're thinking where in the World does this lady live?  No McDonalds, No Starbucks... Must be in a hole somewhere. Close.  It's actually under a rock.

No, really it's just a very small town in Texas.  We have a Dairy Queen, a Sonic and a Chicken Express.  That's it for major chains.  And, if you aren't familiar with Chicken Express, I'm sorry.  They make the best sweet tea around!

Sometimes, I miss having the luxuries of living in the big city.  Driving through for a Mocha Frappuccino at Starbucks is one of them.  So, I thought, if I can put lemonade and strawberries in the blender and make Frozen Strawberry Lemonade, who's to say I can't put coffee and milk into same blender and make a Mocha Frap?

Copycat Mocha Frappuccino


1 1/2 cup brewed coffee
3 TBS chocolate syrup
2 TBS sugar
1/2 cup milk
1-2 cups ice


Combine all the ingredients in a blender.  Blend.  Top with whipped topping and chocolate syrup.

That's it!  I used ingredients I had on hand, so I used Cool Whip (don't judge), and homemade chocolate syrup.  Most of the places I looked also said to use espresso or strong coffee.  I just used my breakfast blend and it tasted just fine.  But, I'm not one for extra strong coffee.
