Java Chip Frappuccino Starbucks Copycat Recipe
Mark as brewed
Java Chip Frappuccino is one of the most popular blended drinks at Starbucks. It’s obviously based on coffee, and it’s described as a blend of “mocha sauce and Frappuccino® chips with coffee, milk and ice”. And what’s more: the official Starbucks website suggests that it should be topped “with whipped cream and mocha drizzle to bring you endless java joy.”
Sounds like something scrumptious, more focused on the sweet dessert-like components than on the coffee. And this is quite weird, considering that the name Java comes from an Arabica coffee that’s quite strong, originating from the homonym island of the Indonesian archipelago.
Anyway, let’s see how we can make the Java Chip Frappuccino at home, with a bunch of easy to find ingredients (including the ones that will substitute the mocha sauce and the frappuccino chips).
