When it comes to coffee, I have a confession to make. I may have a slight problem. Ok, perhaps it's a full-blown addiction. I tend to give more than my fair share of my paycheck right over to Starbucks.

I've always loved coffee but I never really drank a lot of the specialty, foofy espresso drinks. Well, that is until I discovered frappuccinos. I love them and they're a special treat every now and then. But then I discovered just how easy it was to make my own right at home.

This Cinnamon Mocha Frappuccino is a breeze to throw together and takes all of about 5 minutes. A whirr of the blender and viola! A homemade frappuccino right in your kitchen.

I’ll admit I'm not always a fan of the crushed ice/brain freeze aspect of a frappuccino. I love that this blended coffee is also great just served over ice. If you want to really amp up your frappuccino experience to full octane, just like your favorite coffee shop, then top it off with whipped cream, a drizzle of chocolate syrup or a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Blended with crushed ice, served over ice, whipped cream or not, this Cinnamon Mocha Frappuccino recipe is a sweet treat that you can have any day of the week.

    1 Servings

Ingredients

  • 2 fluid ounces espresso coffee
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups ice cubes
  • whipped cream, for garnish

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, stir together the coffee, dark chocolate, sugar and cinnamon until chocolate has melted.
  2. In a blender, blend together the coffee chocolate mixture, milk and ice for 30-45 seconds.
  3. Pour into a glass and top with whipped cream, if desired.

 

Notes

  • You may substitute 3/4 cup double strength brewed coffee for the espresso.
  • I used Vietnamese Cinnamon, which is a stronger flavor. Use the cinnamon you love best.
  • A drizzle of chocolate sauce or a sprinkle of cinnamon would be tasty too!

    I love the ninja blender, You can make so a lot of diverse things with it, and it's genuinely easy to thoroughly clean trigger you just just take the blade out then set it in the dishwasher. I truly appreciate the containers it comes with result in you can do more like solitary servings of smoothies, or you can make dip. If your obtaining this for juicing, I'm not absolutely sure how very well it will function for that since it will make more like a smoothie, not a incredibly liquidy juice. Anyways, I consider it's a good choice for making healthful foodstuff.
