When the spring and summer comes all you want is a nice cold Frapp from Starbucks. There are always two downsides: The lines are always outrageous and the drinks are very costly. That’s why we’ve created a way for you to have your cake and eat it too.Make your Frappuccinos at home — it’s super simple! Anything you find on a Starbucks menu, you can recreate yourself.
Here are a few Frappuccino recipes to get you started:
DIY Mocha Frappuccino Recipe
A blender, milk, coffee, and ice are all you need to create the perfect frothy Frappuccino at home. The key here is making sure all the elements — including the coffee — are cold or at least room temperature. Otherwise, the ice will melt and you will just have watered-down, lukewarm coffee. — Fabiana Santana

Starbucks Affogato Frappuccino Recipe
An affogato (which means “drowned” in Italian) is a coffee-based beverage famed for the temperature contrast between the cold vanilla gelato or ice cream and the hot espresso or coffee that tops it. If you think about it, it may have been the affogato that inspired the Frappuccino in the first place, so it’s only natural that it’s on the secret menu at Starbucks (see our “Starbucks’ Secret Menu: The Ultimate Guide”), but you don’t have to order off the menu to enjoy this treat; you can make it at home! — FieldofFlowers
