This Mocha Chip Frappe is a quick and easy way to get your caffeine fix without spending a fortune on store-bought drinks. Made with just a few ingredients and less than 2 minutes, you’re on your way to caffeinated bliss.
It should be no surprise that I am a coffee devotee. I’ll drink it any way I can get it, including straight-up black. However, coffee drinks are one of my favorite things – mocha, caramel, coconut, hot, cold, room temperature, white chocolate, dark chocolate, no chocolate. You get the picture ☕️☕️
You might be wondering what a Frappe is. Basically, according to Merriam Webster, it’s a partly frozen drink. You’re probably familiar with the popular trademarked version but guess what? You don’t need to spend $5 a drink every day for your afternoon sweet coffee fix.
You can make it at home in less than 2 minutes AND with ingredients you probably already have. To save myself time and effort, I use Folgers instant coffee. Instead of having to brew coffee and then wait for it too cool down, I just throw some Instant coffee right into the blender with the rest of my ingredients and voila – instant frappe. I can’t even stress enough how easy it is to make this mocha chip frappe.
The addition of the chocolate chips give it the “chip” factor – it’s always fun getting a chunk of that chocolate in your straw. I know what I’m talking about. You could always leave them out if you really want to, but then you’ll be a mocha chip frappe party pooper with your plain old mocha frappe. I topped mine off with some whipped cream, mini chocolate chips, and a drizzle of chocolate syrup for that “wow” factor (and to make it feel more like a store-bought drink). You can leave that out but again, party pooper.
You can also use whatever kind of milk you want. We generally have 1% milk, whole milk, vanilla almond milk, and unsweetened coconut milk in our fridge at all times (I KNOW 😬). You can go dairy free with all your ingredients if needed or you could even use whole milk to make it a little richer. I stuck with 1% and it was fab-u-lous.
