The cost of a Tall Mocha Frappuccino at Starbucks is $3.52. In my recipe, I use store-bought Starbucks doubleshot espressos. A four pack costs $4.49
Each doubleshot makes approximately two 8 ounce or tall sized sized mocha frappuccinos. In essence, I estimate my version in total costs under $1.00 to make: The coffee costing $0.59 for each tall size, the syrup and ice I'd guess costs much less than $0.41
You will need:
Starbucks doubleshot espresso (small can)
Start by pouring the espresso into your blender.
Add approximately 4-5 tablespoons chocolate syrup.
Add two cups ice and blend thoroughly
Serve with whipped cream and garnish with syrup or chocolate powder if you prefer.
I like my drinks very sweet; you can also add two tablespoons sugar along with 1-2 tablespoons milk for a creamier, sweeter version. Or, you can add different syrup flavors. I buy mine at Cost Plus World Market. They are now available in smaller sizes at Walmart. Add syrup according to your own specific taste, and add it prior to blending.
