Easy Homemade Mocha Frappuccino

You might remember that I recently shared a little bit about my afternoon me-time and how I like to sit down with a cup of Folgers instant coffee to relax and reenergize. It really is the perfect way to wind down after a busy morning of running the kids around.

From time to time I like to mix up the coffee routine and try something a little different. This Easy Homemade Mocha Frappuccino is a simple recipe that you can make at home with your blender. It requires minimal ingredients: instant coffee, ice cubes, milk, sugar and chocolate sauce. It will only take you 5 minutes to throw this drink together making it the perfect on-the-go drink too.

I like using Instant coffee in these type of frozen drinks because it is so easy to mix up the coffee and throw it in the blender with the other ingredients. Now that the weather is warming up a lot of people like to make frozen coffee drinks, so recipes like this Easy Mocha Frappucino come in handy.

This recipe is also really customizable by using whatever milk you prefer or even a milk substitute like almond milk. If you want to avoid the sugar try using a natural sugar substitute, like agave. I like to add the chocolate sauce and whipped cream to the top of the drink for an occasional treat but that is optional.

Even though we all have busy lives and minimal time to make our morning or afternoon coffee, nothing beats a homemade cup of coffee or coffee drink, like this Easy Homemade Mocha Frappuccino. You know what you are putting in the drink and can control the sweetness.

I know that my summer plans are already in the works which involve summer camps for Will, swim class and days at the park. If this sounds anything like your summer plans you are going to want easy drink recipes like this on hand!

the recipe calls for 1/2 cup instant coffee - is that coffee made up to drink, or the dry instant coffee granules. Thank you in advance for your clarification.

Sorry! I used 1/2 cup of coffee basically--or in this case you make a 1/2 cup of instant coffee using the Folgers Instant Coffee granules. Either works!
