Diy Frappé

Published Wednesday, 08 May, 2013 by Amy Brereton

Just as good as ones from the coffee shop! needs prep time to freeze ice-cubes.



  • Coffee ice-cubes (explained in recipe)
  • milk
  • sugar
  • vanilla flavouring
  • optional
  • vanilla/chocolate protein/milkshake powder
  • whipped cream (can or hand)
  • blender (a decent hand-blender will do)
  • if you are using a hand blender then make sure that it is capable of crushing ice- don't say i didn't warn you!


To make coffee ice-cubes:

make about 500ml of strong coffee (i use real, so i can't tell you whether instant is any good for this), and leave to cool. Pour into ice-cube trays or plastic ice-cube bags and leave to freeze.

when you have your coffee-cubes, put 5-10 in your blender/jug and add enough milk to make it up to a glass (i use about 350ml).If you're using milkshake powder (protein powder/slim.Fast work really well- i use 1 scoop vanilla, 1 scoop chocolate) then add it here and a drop or two of vanilla extract.

whizz up until the ice cubes are crushed (value hand-blenders may struggle/break) and the mixture is smooth-ish. If you did not use milkshake powder, then you may need to add sugar to taste.

chuck into a glass and put some whipped cream on top for a special treat. You can add sauces or syrups to make flavoured frappés.
