When I think of a frappuchino, I think of loading my three small kids into my car, driving five minutes up the road, ordering my drink only to have my kids request their drinks, so ordering three more drinks, driving home, unloading the kids, and then finally getting to enjoy the frappuchino. Sounds like a lot of work, right? A few days ago, I decided to attempt my own homemade version. It was a warm afternoon and the heat was making me tired. Since I wanted a pick me up kind of drink, I put some ingredients into the blender and made my own mocha frappuchino! Let me tell you, this was AMAZING!!! It literally tastes identical to one you would order from Starbucks, is so simple to make, and the ingredients are those that you most likely have already! I was so excited about this that as soon as my hubby came home from work, I had to make another one so he could try it too!! He agrees, its a keeper!! As the summer weather heads our way, avoid the drive through and make your own mocha frappuchino!! You’ll love it, 🙂
