What mocha frappe variations can you make?

There are all kinds of substitutions you can make to suit your taste buds or dietary restrictions. If you’re lactose-intolerant or cutting back on dairy, try almond or coconut milk. Prefer a caffeine-free option? Substitute a tasty decaf coffee. Cutting out white sugar? Try honey, stevia, or any other sugar substitute.

What are the best garnishes?

If you want to take your mocha frappuccino over the top, you’ll want coffee shop-level garnishes. Whipped cream is a great start, and you can top it with fun garnishes like chocolate chips or shavings, Oreo cookies, mint leaves, or fresh raspberries.

Looking for a more wintry flavor? Try topping your drink with spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, or cloves. Or try adding caramel or vanilla syrup for an extra decadent treat.

You can top a mocha frappe with anything sweet — like Oreos and chocolate wafers.

What if you don’t have a blender?

Without a blender, your mocha frappuccino won’t have the same smooth, slushy texture. But it can still be delicious! You can make an iced mocha by combining a shot or two of espresso with cold milk, chocolate syrup, and coffee ice cubes.
