The Best Coffee Frappe Recipe

If you’re wondering how to make iced coffee, then this easy recipe is for you. This creamy homemade coffee frappe is made with espresso and milk. It’s a must have coffee recipe for summer!

WHAT IS COFFEE FRAPPE?

Frappe is just a sweet iced coffee blended with milk and espresso, and it makes for the perfect, summer favorite coffee house treat. It is a MUST have coffee drink if you’re hanging out at the pool, beach, or even your backyard. 

Currently, I am vacationing in Belek, Turkey, and there’s not a person at the beach without a Frappe in their hands. Not only is it a must if you’re chillin’ on the beach, it is the only coffee that everyone orders at the cafés around here.

This is a delicious refreshing icy drink totally fit for a hot summer day. For me, it’s like dessert in my coffee cup. ☕ Mostly, though, I am glad that I don’t have to get up and drive to a coffee house to satisfy my Frappe cravings.

My version is also WAY healthier. Lawwwd knows about all the syrups and creams that go into the real thing.

However, if you want to fatten it up a bit, top your Frappe with whipped cream and chocolate syrup.

  1. This turned out exactly like the pictures posted and tasted lovely. I halved the sugar though as I don’t have a massive sweet tooth. I made one straight coffee and the other with an additional flat teaspoon of hot chocolate powder to make a mocha frappe. Again both were very good.

  2. The original frappe coffee comes from Greece and is prepared using instant coffee (without whipped cream etc).
    The one you are describing here is actually more like a freddo espresso.
    Cheers anyway!

    1. That would be correct, it just has coffee, milk and sugar. I can however see how whipped cream would be a nice addition.

  3. I make this frappe recipe with a sweetener instead of sugar to keep the carbs low. Sometimes I add a touch of heavy whipping cream. YUM! HEAVEN!!

  4. This seems like such a silly question. Could you tell me where to find instant espresso coffee, or maybe just a brand name? I’ve looked at my local grocery stores, Walmart and Target and haven’t been able to find it! Am I just looking for the wrong thing? I really want to try this recipe! Thank you!

    Good to know one thing about Turkey 🙂 In summer days, frappe is indeed an ideal drink to refresh!

  6. thank you for engineering a relatively low calorie coffee drink, at least compared with those sugar bombs at any coffee shop, even the independent ones, enjoy your vacation!

  7. This is such a great recipe and I can’t wait to make it!! I am thinking about adding a little pumpkin to it. Have a great time in Turkey 🙂

      Thank you!! It’s an incredible place and the weather is amazing! I also didn’t expect the Mediterranean Sea to be as warm as it is.

  8. Yummy looking drink. I wish my blender was powerful enough to crush the ice rather than just whirl it around until it all melts. 🙂

      That’s true…standard blenders aren’t as powerful. :-/ There’s a high speed blender by Ninja and those run about 50 bucks on Amazon. If you are into smoothies and such, it’s definitely worth getting one.
