DIY Frappuccino

I love special coffee recipes and this is really an outstanding one!

I enjoyed this recipe and now that I have the chocolate sauce on hand, I know that I can prepare this more often!


  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup chocolate syrup (plus more for drizzling)
  • 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoons instant espresso powder
  • 3 cups ice
  • Whipped cream (optional topping)

Coffee Mocha Frosted


So yummy and refreshing!

I prepared this wonderful beverage for only for me as for the morning break before shopping.

As I don’t have chocolate syrup I melted the chocolate in the hot espresso using a small ceramic bowl in the microwave. Then I place the bowl in a cold water bath to cool down. I placed the second espresso in the cold water bath to cool down as well.

I blended the ice-cream with the chocolate-espresso mixture, after this I added the second coffee and blended shortly.

It came out very creamy, sweet but not too much and tasty!

Thanks a lot Twissis  for this wonderful morning break!

Ingredients (US mesurements, makes 4 portions):

  • 1 cup brewed coffee (hot & freshly brewed)
  • 6 tablespoons chocolate syrup
  • 1 pint ice cream (vanilla, softened)
  • 1 cup brewed coffee (cold)

  • 30 ml brewed coffee (hot & freshly brewed) = one hot espresso
  • 20 ml/g chocolate syrup  = I used dark sweetened chocolate

How to Make Turkish/Greek Coffee


Annacia’s Turkish coffee recipe is simply perfect and the coffee I preapred was the best Turkish coffee I’ve ever prepared. The main point is: heat slowly and don’t let it boil. I was scared to prepare this because I still had some coffee (I used Greek coffee powder) that I had to use and I was not sure if this was fresh enough.

I made this only for me: I heated one coffee cup of water with the sugar and cardamom. When I saw it was hot I added the coffee powder and I continued heating slowly, without let them boil. As soon as I saw that the coffee started to sink and the foam begun to be be formed. I stirred once. I did not let him turn to hot and not let him “to rise” I simply continued brewing for about 2 minutes until I feel that it was ready: foamy but no more coffee powder on the surface.

The coffee was perfect, great taste, foamy and enough and the powder stood only on the bottom of the cup!

I enjoyed it with a small “quince paste” and a glass of water.


  • 2 small turkish coffee cups fresh cold water
  • 2 Tbsp turkish ground coffee (powder)
  • 4 tsp sugar or to taste
  • 2 pinch ground cardamom

Iced White Chocolate Coffee


If look for a white chocolate iced coffee this is what you are looking for!

To prepare this coffee I used white chocolate, which I dissolved into the still hot coffee. This I added the ice cubes  and I one scoop vanilla ice cream. After this I poured the coffee mix into glasses and added the second ice cream scoop. I decorated it as suggested using some fresh self made white chocolate flakes and the instant coffee granules.  And WOW what for coffee!


  • 8 oz brewed coffee, cold, strong, fresh brewed french-roast
  • 2 Tbsp white hot cocoa mix (ghirardelli’s), I used white chocolate
  • 1 1/2 oz white chocolate liqueur (godiva) (optional), I did not use this
  • 2 scoops french vanilla ice cream, large
  • 2 – 4 ice cubes
  • 1 tsp instant coffee granules (garnish)
  • 2 tsp white chocolate, flaked (garnish)
