Homemade Frappaccino (aka My Milkshake Post)

I enjoy using the term double entendre. Actually, I just like using big words in general. It keeps my friends on their toes. Side note – ergo? NOT a big word (inside joke – air.go). But anyways…the song “Milkshake” oozes double entendre (amongst other things).

My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard

And they’re like, it’s better that yours

Damn right, it’s better than yours

I can teach you, but I’d have to charge

I don’t know what it is about this song that so many years later is still fun to reference (OK maybe I do know but this isn’t the blog to discuss it), but I giggle every time I see it referenced on Twitter, which is quite a bit.

In homage to the “Milkshake” song and for all who love it, reference it and dance in their kitchens to it (that may only be me), I give you my homemade frappaccino recipe.  Cheaper than Starbucks and just as delicious.

Homemade Frappaccino

Serves 1

Ingredients:

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup double brewed coffee, chilled

2 tablespoons chocolate syrup

1 1/2 cups ice

Whipped cream (optional)

Directions:

Combine sugar, milk, coffee and chocolate syrup in a blender. Blend for 20-30 second.

Add ice and pulse until it has a slushy consistency.

Pour into a glass and top with whipped cream and drizzle with additional chocolate syrup if preferred. I skip the whipped cream, since it upsets my stomach, but feel free to indulge. You just saved yourself $5 at Starbucks. Enjoy!

    If I can offer a possible tweak to the recipe: cold-brewed coffee. All the flavor without the harsh bitterness.

    (I had that song in my head as soon as I saw your post… great minds think alike!)

    @Jason – That probably would be better. If you ever try it that way, please let me know what you think.

    @Kristi – I know how much you love your coffee. ;) I still need to make your garlic pasta recipe from last weekend. That sounded faboo!

    @JenJen – OSJJ – Oh Sweet JenJen. I love you even if the Milkshake had to be explained to you.
