This is a blended-coffee treat much like an iced cappuccino you might buy at a restaurant. You can make it non-dairy by using soy milk.

YUM! I added a full tablespoon of coffee granules for me, because I like a real eye-opener. This is NOM. I'd make this again for sure. EDITED REVIEW: Now that I've adapted a healthier lifestyle and am eating lighter, I cut the milk back a bit and use either two tablespoons french vanilla flavored sugar free creamer or two tablespoons fat free evaporated milk, my homemade sugar free chocolate syrup and if it's not sweet enough, a couple packets Truvia sweetener. It's every bit as good as the full fat version.Read More
I used a 1-serving packet of the instant coffee granules. It measured almost 2 tsp, and I did use it all. Even using double the amount of coffee that this recipe calls for, it wasn't overkill. I'd recommend increasing the coffee granule amount to 2 tsp if--like me--you love the flavor of coffee. I also used a few more ice cubes so it really was a shake-like consistency. This drink wasn't as sweet as some of the coffee-shop versions, probably because of the use of vanilla rather than the vanilla syrup that the shops use, so I'd probably increase the sugar a bit next time, too. This drink was great topped with whipped topping drizzled with a bit more chocolate syrup.Read More

Definitely tastes like a frappuccino from Starbucks if you replace the vanilla with Torani brand vanilla which you can find at World Market. I also add 1/4 cup of mini morsels before I blend to have the "java chip" taste. Yum!!
I used Splenda and it tasted great!
Very good, and so easy (AND much more cheap than a fancy coffee shops!) I used a little less sugar, but followed the suggestion of adding mini-chips. I also added some more ice and instant coffee. No matter what you do, this is great. I made a little to much, so I put the extra in the freezer (maybe 20 min), then decided I wanted the rest, and by then it was nice a slushy.. even better :)
Loved this, I used skim milk, sugar free chocolate syrup, and french vanilla slenda since I am watching my calories. I also added some instant french vanilla cappucino.
This is basically my standard recipe except the vanilla, which is a delicious addition! I used 2 tsp sugar, 2 Tbsp of hot chocolate (drinking cocoa) powder instead of the syrup. HINT: For any blender drink with white sugar, add the sugar to the blender FIRST and run it for a bit dry - it will pulverize into superfine sugar which dissolves beautifully into drinks for a more professional texture.
Very Good! I doubled the recipe, used Splenda instead of sugar, used only 1/2 of the vanilla, and added 2tbsp of Ovaltine and it was wonderful. I bet it would be even better with chocolate syrup so I'll try it again after I go shopping! :-p
OMGosh!! This is amazing!! I double it (of course!!) and use 1% milk, Sweet 'n' Low, and a splash of hazelnut creamer. I drank Starbucks Frappuccinos 3-5 times per week and I have saved a fortune since I found this recipe!
I usaually read the reveiws before making something but I felt like this was a simple recipe so I didn't...I wish I did. I would have used more coffee.
A tip for all of you that I do. Any left over coffee I have in the pot after hubby and I are done with it , I pour the remaining coffee in ice cube trays to use for Iced Coffee drinks.
Tastes almost like a frappuccino from Starbucks!
Wow,You have saved me so much money!!! Thank-you so much for sharing this recipe.Karen
i haven't tried this one yet. however one suggestion i could make would be to make ice cubes with very strong coffee instead of plain water. gives it a strong taste and use frozen yoghurt instead of sugar and vanilla. tastes just like a Tim Hortons Iced Cap
I made a few small changes. 3/4 cup fat free milk, 1 tbsp coffee granules, a tiny bit of sugar and some caramel syrup. This really is very close to the way a frappuccino from Starbucks tastes and I am saving a ton of money!!!!
Very refreshing. I used Splenda in place of the sugar and a little extra chocolate syrup drizzled inside of the glass. It was delicious.
REALLY GR8 I used vanilla almond silk instead of milk & added carmel syrup instead of chocolate ...just for a little variety....try it you'lll like it!
after reading some reviews i decided to up the coffee to two tsp. It was a little bit strong for me, so next time i'll just do 1tsp. I did add the chocolate syrup and a splash of hazelnut creamer. It does taste like a coffee drink you'd buy.
Really good! I made it low carb by using organic milk, sugar free chocolate syrup and splenda. Will make many times again.
Its almost 5:00 and I made one to test ..its is amazing!!!I need to make more oneday.for others..I love about anything that has coffee flavor.THANX!
Also great made with this morning's cold coffee and- lacking chocolate syrup- some Nestle's chocolate milk powder. I'm on my second glass right now....
Wow, we made this with root beer flavoring. different but so good. I would try any flavoring included the chocolate or plain. I want more and it made a big amount.
THIS TASTES SO MUCH LIKE STARBUCKS FROZEN DRINKS. I found that up to 3 times the recipe will fit into a standard blender at a time. The main difference between this recipe and the coffee shops is this one was a lot less sweet, which is something I didn't care for with the coffee shops frozen coffees anyway. I used 2% low-fat milk and lite chocolate syrup. It does melt or thin pretty quickly so it has to be made right then. But, the liquid part could be made ahead a time like the coffee shops do and the ice could be added later. Try it topped with whipped cream and some caramel, so good! Thanks
Yummy yummy yummy! Used 1 tablespoon coffee granules and 1 tablespoon sugar, Torani vanilla syrup, eight ice cubes and Hershey's syrup. There is no Starbucks on the island, so I put it in my plastic Starbucks cup and fooled my craving.
I love this drink. I made this exactly as written but used skim milk instead of whole, splenda instead of sugar and sugar free chocolate syrup. You can have this drink for a little less than 70 calories!! This is great for those of us watching our weight.
To use my daughter's phrase--this is "shamazing"!!!!!! I will never get Starbuck's frappacino again. I didn't have any chocolate syrup on hand so I substituted 2 tsp of chocolate milk mix. It was fantastic. I will probably add just a little more coffee--maybe half a tsp more next time.
i hate the taste of coffee...loved it!
Yay finally figured it out. I had been using fresh coffee to try and make a blended drink - the instant granules work so much better! Very tasty.
Very good!!!! Add 2 teaspoons of coffee granules as others have suggested, and a little more sugar. Good strong coffee taste.
This tastes like a Starbucks Java Chip Frappe! Very good! I tried it without the chocolate syrup and deeply regretted it! It needs the chocolate. I'd add just one more ice cube and a tad bit more sugar and instant coffee. Delicious!
so good. perfect for summer, I added just a drip of peppermint extract to it. :)
Pretty tasty, I can see myself making this a lot in the summer. I also doubled the instant coffee, and it could even use more. I think it could be perfected by finding the perfect type of milk, the perfect chocolate syrup, etc. I used 1% milk, nesquik rolo syrup, and real vanilla. Gonna try soy milk next time!
It tasted like Burger King's Mocha BK Joe! Yum!
I used ice cream instead of ice cubes for a creamier taste, and a hazelnut flavored coffee mix, and since i didn't have any chocolate syrup, i used hot chocolate mix. I might have changed the recipe all together but it was delicious!
I used my leftover coffee and froze it in ice trays instead of buying instant coffee and adding ice cubes. I also used Splenda and light chocolate syrup. This was delicious!
Although i did tweak it a little, Im sure the original would have been great! I put 1/4 cup of french vanilla capuccino instead of coffee, and put one packet of sweet n low (the cap. was already pretty sweet) and added 2 tablespoons of chocolate nestle quick! TASTED JUST LIKE THE CAFE VANILLA AT STARBUCKS!
This recipe is absolutely delicious! I doubled the recipe and added about 1/4 cup of chocolate morsels. Tasted as good as a frapp. from Starbucks or any coffee shop!
not bad a little bitter with the instant coffee used non fat evap milk, low cal sweetner definitely a keeper just need to tweek it a little next time
I added 2 Tbls of hazelnut coffee creamer to the recipe.
Really delicious. I used Starbuck's Via Italian Roast decaf, could probably be even richer with an espresso Via. I was out of Splenda but will use that next time.
Whenever I make an iced coffee at home, I have to make it in my Starbucks coffee cup. Then everytime I see it, it makes me think about all the money I'm saving every morning. This is good, but the "easy iced coffee" from this site is easier to make, no blender to wash afterwards. I used FF skim milk, a packet of Equal and zero chocolate syrup.
Yum, this was really good. A refreshing pick me up on a hot summer afternoon.
Nice and easy recipe! I substituted 1 Tbsp instant espresso (the little bottle of Italian import awesomeness) and used Ephmere chocolate sauce which isn't sweet. Next time I'll add another Tbsp of espresso, though. Thanks to this recipe, I won't need to hit up the Starbucks across the street from my place. =)
Enjoyed the coffee shake, tasted just like coffee shake at Starbucks. I modified recipe as I am a diabetic and WW member. Used 1 packet of WW French Vanilla powder, sugar free French Vanilla CoffeeMate cream, and Splenda instead of sugar. I've also used Hershey's sugar free chocolate syrup instead of the CoffeeMate. YUMMIE.
I love this recipe! I did alter it the 2nd time though because I had some frozen yogurt that I needed to use up. I like strong coffee to so I put more coffee in it. I used 1 tablespoon coffee, 1/2 c milk, 3 ice cubes, and about 1 scoop frozen vanilla yogurt. I kept everything else the same.
The flavor was very good but the consistency was not.
Delicious and simple to make! Definitely better than going & spending money at Starbucks for the same thing
So simple to make, and so refreshing! I used a little less vanilla, 1% milk and Sweet N' Low instead of sugar. I don't think you can go wrong, no matter what percent milk you use, or sweetener. It was 100F today, and this shake was sooo tasty---and so much more economical than the coffee house drinks!
It's not too sweet and not too bitter. A perfect coffee shake!!!!!
OMG was this great -- I tried it a second time and since I love my coffee strong I used instant espresso and instead of chocolate syrup I used caramel syrup. This is definitely a keeper
Needs more coffee- more ice- more sugar! But then it was good. I didn't have syrup so I added a small handful of chocolate chips. Second cup: I substituted a packet of hot chocolate mix for the sugar/chocolate and put in two packets of granuals- Yum!
Not bad! It takes almost exactly like a Starbucks frappuccino. But I didn't have any vanilla extract so I used coconut flavor instead. And the coconut flavor made it taste like Starbuck's coconut frapp! This is a drink I will definitely be using for my early mornings.
It was good, I will try with chocolate chips next time because I like my coffee really sweet:) It was nice to find a basic recipe that didn't require fancy coffee or an espresso machine
This was an excellent recipe. It tasted just as good as the coffee shops. I used splenda in this instead of regular sugar. This will be my favorite summer recipe. I will be making this a lot.
This was AWESOME. I used Folgers French Vanilla Cap. instead of instant coffee. Next time I will cut sugar back to 1tsp or maybe none as the Cap. has plenty already. This recipe is definatley a keeper!
1/11/2010 Not enough coffee flavor for me as is. I used 1 T. instant coffee and 1 T. sugar and it was much better. I also had to add 2 extra ice cubes. Will substitute Splenda for sugar next time. 6-9-2016 Since I like my coffee strong, I used an entire packet of Starbuck's Via Decaf Dark Italian Roast to 3/4 cup almond milk. Of course, much more sweetener was needed. I used a stevia blend. Still needed 2 extra ice cubes.
This was gooood! I used non-fat milk and a whole tablespoon of instant coffee...Perfect!
This tastes so much better than the one's you buy. I added splenda and fat free milk and it was terrific. Could get addicted to it easily.
Frap-a-licious! I used 1/2 cup light vanilla soy milk, increased the coffee to about a tablespoon and used Splenda instead of sugar. It was low fat and low cal, but tasted great! I'll definitely make this again and often. Thanks for the great recipe!!
Both my daughter and I liked it very much. I added an extra teaspoon of chocolate sauce and used raw sugar.
Really good flavor! I would recommend this to any coffee lover!
This coffee shake is amazing! It reminds me of a Jamocha Shake from Arbys!
This is AMAZING!! I loved it, and it was very easy to make.
I think this was better with a little bit more chocolate (I love chocolate :P), but it was really good. If you don't like coffee shakes to taste too much like coffee, I recomend puting a little less coffee granules. All in all, a very good shake. Thanks for posting!!
very good and very easy. who knew you could make a starbucks taste alike? now I can get some caramel syrup and even add things to my likes like cinnamon and other syrups :)
This recipe is awesome! I wanted to save myself some calories and guilt by using vanilla flavored almond milk instead of regular milk and splenda instead of sugar. I didn't have any chocolate syrup, and I'm sure it would be great, but I honestly didn't miss it. Thanks for sharing your recipe with us!! :-)
This tasted great. My only change was, I did not have chocolate syrup so I put in 1 tablespoon of chocolate protein powder.
I sometimes make this recipe but I do not blend. Delicious!
I've been doing this for years. I don't use vanilla or chocolate, but use splenda and instant expresso like Pilon or Cafe Bustelo. Unless it's really cold outside, this is my Florida wake up! I use Almond unsweetened milk as I'm diabetic.
Great, yummy, easy, only wish it was creamier! Definitely Starbux material
I didn't have any instant coffee so instead I froze very strong, brewed coffee into ice cubes. I also substituted vanilla syrup for the vanilla, sugar, and chocolate syrup. I then blended the ice cubes with the remaining ingredients. The consistency and taste were very good. Will most definitely be making this again.
great on a hot day.
This was good, just didn’t wow me. Instead of chocolate syrup that I didn’t have, I added 1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder, plus an extra 1/2 tsp sugar to compensate for that. My mom really liked it though, and said it tasted like “melted ice cream.”
Momma loves coffee, I love coffee. We both loved this!
This was delicious. Easy and fast, it gave me exactly the results my sister and I wanted. I did change the recipe a bit: I omitted all of the sugar and half the vanilla extract it suggested, and it turned out great. I'll be using this for a long time. Thanks!
I felt it was a tad sweet, but otherwise it was great! I recommend using milk with some fat in it so that it tastes creamier. I didn't blend it, so I just stuck in the ice cubs and let it sit for a while to melt into the coffee. Adding a dash of cinnamon makes it nice too!
This was Amazing!!!! I will be making this a lot lol thank u. I didn't change anything to this.
Loved it! I replaced the sugar with Equal.
Yep! double the coffee to 2 Tbsp's of course! try it with some real chocolate too. Just a splash of vanilla so it doesn't drown the flavor. Top it off with some whipped cream and a few dashes of cinnamon and you have yourself one of those fancy $5 starbucks mocha latte cinnamon frappuccino's at a fraction of the price! Sweet!
My mother drank a similar concoction every morning for years. She added a raw egg to it for protien.
This is fabulous! Tastes much like a Tim Hortons ice cap, which I order with milk! I don’t remember what the Starbucks Frappuccino tastes like since they aren’t in my area, so I can’t give a comparison on taste. I first made it with our Nutra Bullet but learned I needed to make more than 1 serving. I now use the blender, which fits 3 servings (generous servings). I’ve made it 5 times in last 3 days for a few people. Everyone who tasted it, loved it. I’ve made with almond milk and regular milk, both enjoyable. Note- it does foam up while blending.
i used 1 packet of the Instant coffee and i didn't add choco syrup instead of that i added caramel syrup in the end and it was soo delicious
Wow, this was great. I tried to put chocolate chips in it like other reviewers suggested, but that didn't work out that great. I also increased the amt of coffee, love the taste. I also added whipped cream on top. I can see adding some cinnamon as well. Thanks Cherries for the recipe.
Needed a little afternoon pick me up and this did the trick.
I made this with....already cold coffee, ice cubes, stevia, sugar free choc syrup, unsweetened almond milk and a dab of sugar free french vanilla coffee creamer! YUMMY
My husband is the coffee drinker.... and he gave it a 5! Only change was we don't have ice cubes and using Lactaid (nondairy) milk. oh! also, no chocolate syrup. To us, the 'sweetness' was fine. Stirred it with a drink frother and it looked and tasted great!
it was good but it took me more than 5 mins, this is a very good recipe I have it a lot this has replaced my previous recipe.
I tweaked this a little. Usually buy the Mocha Joe from Burger King. They just lost a customer and my $.
It was delicious!!! I added caramel hot fudge on top of my whipped cream and made it even more tasty
This is a very good recipe. But to make the proper adjustments, to my taste, I used a shot of cold espresso instead of the instant granules and half a shot of creme de cacoa. PERFECTION!
Good but needed more sweetener.
This was a yummy, no guilt treat. I used skim milk, decaf instant coffee, 1 pkt Splenda and sf/ff chocolate Hersheys. Very tasty and hit the spot on this hot day!
I used a whole packet of instant coffee granules also. I did not have any vanilla extract, so I used a French vanilla syrup from Torani. It could use some more coffee or syrup. I will definitely try this again.
It tastes great but in my ninja blender it makes alot of foamy stuff on top but after i let it set in the fridge for a while it tastes awesome
Also very good if you add bananas to it
Not bad at all, did however double the sugar and vanilla, Then added 3tbsp brown sugar.
Yum! I really hate coffee but I really loved this! I used a little bit of vanilla bean seeds instead of vanilla extract though since I cant have vanilla extract. I also drizzled chocolate syrup over the top of the drink when it was done. Thanks for the recipe!
