Every now and then I crave an icy chocolatey drink with a caffeine kick. That’s when I whip out the blender and make this quick Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino Copycat.
Honestly, who needs to spend 5+ dollars when you can make this deliciousness in the comfort of your own home and be able to control the amount of carbs you put into your drink.
One suggestion I do have is that if you love ice-blended drinks and/or smoothies, invest in a powerful blender like a Vitamix Blender. This ensures that smooth icy blend you get from coffee or smoothie shops.
If you’re wondering why this recipe uses instant/granular coffee rather than brewed coffee, the truth is that when I was recipe testing this Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino Copycat, I tried using strong brewed coffee but no matter how strong of coffee I used, the drink came out tasting watered down. So using instant/granular coffee took care of that problem.
On a separate note, you may notice that when you become adapted to low-carb/keto lifestyle, things that didn’t taste that sweet before all of a sudden become extremely sweet. So because of this, I tend to make my drinks pretty mild in terms of sweetness level. But If you prefer something sweeter, feel free to adjust it to your liking!
