Every now and then I get a real hankering for an icy Mocha Frappe…but I’m not always in the vicinity of a coffee house. Or a McDonald’s. Or any type of civilization for that matter.
So if I want to cure my itch for hankerings like this, it’s best to have a recipe on hand to make them at home.
I am becoming more of a living legend in their eyes.
One Frappe at a time.
You too can reach legendary status by making this Frappe.
All you need are a few simple ingredients. No Frappe machine or fancy equipment required.
1/2 cup sugar
1 pint or 2 cups half and half
1 cup cold water
3 tablespoons instant coffee granules
1/4 cup chocolate syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups whole milk
Combine sugar, half and half, water, coffee granules, chocolate syrup and vanilla in a freezer safe pitcher or other container. Mix well until sugar and coffee granules are dissolved. Stir in the milk. Place container in freezer for about 8 hours or until the mixture reaches your desired slushiness. If you can’t wait that long, you can pour the mixture into individual serving sizes and freeze for 4 hours or until slushy.
Once the base has been frozen as desired, top with a good helping of whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup.
