Coffee is undoubtedly one of the most popular beverages. Nowadays, it is available in numerous versions that are sold at exorbitant prices. So how about making some of them at home itself? It can save you some money, as well as your trips to coffee shops. Making frappuccino at home is not a difficult task, provided you know the right methods, and you have the required materials.
Tips for Making Frappuccino at Home
In order to make a cup of frappuccino, you need one or two shots of espresso (as per your taste), three tablespoons of sugar (or sweetener), 1 to 1½ cup of crushed ice cubes, and ¾ cup of milk. You need chocolate syrup and whipped cream for garnishing.
Put everything (except those meant for garnishing) in the blender. Blend them for 30 to 45 seconds. Pour the drink in a tall glass and garnish with whipped cream and chocolate syrup. Your homemade frappuccino is ready to serve.
You may also use a cup of filter coffee instead of espresso shot. In that case, you need one to two spoons of coffee powder. Pour hot water and prepare the coffee, and let it cool before blending with other ingredients. If you like slightly thicker coffee blends, use cream instead of milk. You can also add chocolate syrup or other flavored syrups to make the drink thicker.
For a stronger coffee flavor, use freshly-brewed coffee, instead of espresso shot. This homemade frappuccino is really easy and less expensive when compared to those offered by coffee shops. While you can make this drink with the help of an espresso machine and a blender, a frappuccino maker can reduce your work considerably. So you may also invest in a frappuccino machine, so that you can make this coffee with less effort.
