What ingredients do I need to make pumpkin Frappuccino?


  • Heavy Cream – can also use whipping cream. Can sub with coconut cream for dairy-free option.
  • Instant Coffee – strong dark roast instant coffee works best. We recommend Starbucks Premium Instant Coffee.
  • Sweetener – use your preferred sweetener.
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice – blend of spices including cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger, and all spice.

Why use instant coffee to make the Frappuccino rather than brewed coffee?

Instant coffee is the key to achieving a robust coffee flavor in this Frappuccino recipe without diluting its creamy consistency. Brewed coffee tends to be less concentrated and can result in a watery texture when used in a Frappuccino.

Using instant coffee allows you to infuse the drink with a strong coffee essence, making it a satisfying and delicious beverage. Plus, it’s a practical choice for those who don’t have access to an espresso machine at home.
