You Can Now Make Starbucks' Frappuccino At Home - And Here's How

You Can Now Make Starbucks' Frappuccino At Home - And Here's How

If there's one thing we're missing during lockdown, it's the unrivalled satisfaction of picking up a coffee when you're out.

It's one of life's small pleasures, and no matter how hard we try, the versions from our own kettle never have quite the same je ne sais quoi as our baristas.

While it may be a while until we're back sipping on our favourite frothy lattes, we do have word on how to make the Starbucks' Mocha Frappuccino at home.

Posted by London-based TikTok foodfluencer @caughtsnackin, the recipe for the icy summer coffee is *so* simple you'll be gutted you haven't known about it all lockdown.

All you'll need is ice cubes, espresso, milk, granulated sugar and chocolate syrup.

Start by adding a few blocks of ice to a blender. Add two shots of espresso, a cup of milk for creaminess, 1 tbsp of chocolate sauce and 2 tbsp of sugar and whisk it all up until perfectly mixed.

In the comments, someone suggested: "add more ice for authentic Starbucks frappe, as espresso shots almost melted the ice."

While another added: "Ok so I'm actually a barista and I recommend waiting until the end to add the ice because everything else melts it!"

A third praised the recipe, saying: "As a starbucks employee you did it amazing."

We can't wait to try this.

Most of the locations due to reopen are drive-thrus, alongside a small selection of cafes offering takeaway, with delivery services expected to be brought in.

Starbucks said that its reopened branches will offer a "near-complete" beverage menu, which is sure to please fans of the coffee giants.
