I have come to the sacred mountains of Juan Valdez seeking the truth and wisdom that has been passed down the generations of coffee gurus. Oh Caffinated One, my quest has been to find the true recipe for a Starbuck’s Mocha Frappuccino and have stumbled upon this ancient text. Is this really that which I seek? And can I make it with a Keurig?

Things You’ll Need:

  • 1/2 cup fresh espresso
  • 2 1/2 cups 2% low fat milk
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of dry pectin
  • pinch of cocoa powder
  1. Step 1

    First, you’ll need to start by making the espresso. If you have an espresso machine, use it! If you don’t, you can use a drip coffee maker and your favorite coffee (any standard grind will do). Put 1/3 cup of ground coffee in the coffee maker and about 1 cup of water. Then, brew as usual. Now, using the same coffee grounds, run the coffee through the machine again. This should be just enough to make the 1/2 cup of espresso needed for this recipe.

  2. Step 2

    Now that you have the espresso, gather the following ingredients: fresh espresso, 2% low fat milk, granulated sugar, dry pectin and cocoa powder as specified in the things you’ll need section. Next, combine all of the ingredients in a pitcher or a covered container.

  3. Step 3

    Stir the ingredients until all of the sugar is dissolved. Put it in the refrigerator and chill. This must be served COLD. Recipe makes about 24 ounces. ENJOY!
