How to Make An Iced Frappe In A Blender

Who needs Starbucks, anyway? This creamy iced coffee is the perfect homemade treat to get your frappe fix no matter what your day looks like. Learn how to make your favourite summer drink from your very own kitchen in four easy steps. All you need is a few simple ingredients and that frappe coffee craving!

Serves 1


  • Instant espresso coffee
  • Milk
  • Sugar
  • Ice cubes 

Optional toppings:

  • Whipped cream
  • Caramel or chocolate sauce
  • Honeycomb pieces, chocolate sprinkles, crushed nuts
  • Cinnamon powder
  • Ice cream (if you’re feeling hungry!)

A Note On Toppings:

An iced frappe is good, but you know what’s even better? An iced frappe with cream, sauce and sprinkles! Here’s where you can really make your frappe pop. Top off your frappe with whipped cream for an indulgent creamy layer (or ice cream if you’re in the mood for a sundae), and drizzle your drink with a sauce of choice. We’d recommend a caramel drizzle or a chocolate sauce to complement the coffee flavours, but feel free to get experimental here to find your perfect combination. You can even line the cup with sauce before you add your drink to keep the sweetness coming all the way through.

If you like a bit of spice, then add cinnamon powder on top for a fiery kick. Like a bit of crunch? Turn your frappe into a dessert with honeycomb pieces, crushed hazelnuts or chocolate sprinkles.

  1. Put the kettle on and make an espresso with your instant coffee. Leave your coffee in the fridge for a few minutes to give it time to chill down.

    This time in the fridge stops your frappe from becoming too warm and melting the ice. Use this time to get out your blender and other ingredients.

    Top tip: If you like a daily iced coffee, keep a pitcher of brewed coffee in the fridge during the summer. Time saving, and a perfect way to perk up your afternoon!
  2. Pour your espresso into your blender and top up with 6-7 ice cubes, enough milk to fill your glass of choice, and a teaspoon of sugar (you can always stir in more at the end if you prefer it sweeter). Need a blender? We’ve got plenty of models here:

  3. Blend on a low speed, gradually increasing the speed until foamy and the ice has broken down into slush. If you prefer a smoother drink, keep blending until the ice has been fully melted.

  4. Pour into a glass, add your toppings and serve immediately. Enjoy!
