Copycat Starbucks Cherry Mocha Frappuccino
12 ounces, fluid Very Strong Brewed Coffee Or Espresso, Chilled
8 ounces, fluid Whole Milk (more to taste)
1/3 cup Sweetened, Condensed Milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
3 tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa
3 tbsp maraschino cherry juice
1/4 cup Half-and-half (optional)
Brew your coffee and add it to the blender. Also add your milk (or half & half), sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, into the blender. Top off blender with ice and blend until smooth and icy. Serve in a glass with whipped cream on top, and a cherry, of course! I was super disappointed when I ordered this from Starbucks and all I got were cute sprinkles – but no cherry! 😱
Just between me and you, I prefer this Homemade Frappuccino recipe way better, which has been adapted from the lovely Pioneer Woman.
