It was in 1995 that Starbucks stores started selling this frozen drink, one of the company's most successful new products. The Frappuccino is blended with strong coffee, sugar, a dairy base, and ice. Each one is made to order and each one is guaranteed to give you a throbbing brain freeze if you sip too hard. The drinks come in several different varieties, the most popular of which Ive cloned here for your frontal lobe-pounding, caffeine-buzzing pleasure.

Make double-strength coffee by measuring 2 tablespoons of ground coffee per cup serving in your coffee maker. The clone will be even more authentic if you use Starbucks beans and grind them yourself just before brewing.

      2. To make the drink, combine all ingredients in a blender and blend on high speed until ice is crushed and drink is smooth. Pour into two 16-ounce glasses, and serve with a straw.

      Makes 2 "grande" drinks.

The flavor was there, but the texture isn't. I followed the recipe and my drink turned out as complete liquid. It's suppose to be more a slushy type drink. Not sure if it's my problem or the recipe.

I used a medium blend coffee and found the Caramel tasted just like the original, but the mocha one did not. I did not use the Starbucks brand beans. This recipe taste completely different depending on which coffee beans you use; make sure to use a medium, 100% Arabica bean blend.
