What Is A Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino?
If you are wondering what a mocha cookie crumble frappuccino is, it’s a tasty, delicious, delightful and decadent rich Starbucks frappuccino that is made with mocha sauce, milk, java chips, cookie crumble, coffee (a double shot of espresso), whipped cream and a cheeky drizzle of mocha sauce.
It’s rich, sweet, chocolatey and tastes more like a gourmet chocolate milk drink than a coffee beverage.
The Starbucks mocha cookie crumble is the top-selling frappuccino drink at the world’s best known coffee shop.
What Is In A Starbucks Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino?
You can make this Starbucks mocha cookie crumble at home easily and with just 7 ingredients, which are as follows:
- Milk Of Your Choice: You can use any milk, whole fat, skimmed, 2% coconut milk, oat milk, soy milk, almond milk are all good choices.
- Strong Coffee: A double shot of espresso is best, brewed coffee works well too. Moka pot, Aeropress are brewing methods to consider also. Dark roasted coffee will bring through a good coffee flavor.
- Mocha Sauce: This is what gives the drink its decadence, the rich chocolate flavor. Hershey’s Sugar-free chocolate sauce and Davinci Gourmet Sugar-free Chocolate Syrup are great choices.
- Oreo Cookies: The world-famous cookies are crushed and blended into the drink and used to decorate it.
- Java Chips: These are chocolate chips that are used in blended beverages. Both the Java chips and the Oreo cookies add to the texture.
- Whipped Cream: Many consider this an optional ingredient. I consider it an essential ingredient for three reasons: taste, texture and decoration.
- Crushed Ice: This is a frozen beverage and crushed ice is needed for that frozen effect.
- Xanthan Gum: This is needed to help bind your ingredients together. It’s an emulsifying agent.
These super seven ingredients are what make this drink an amazing and enjoyable beverage. At Latte Love Brew we aim at using the most delicious ingredients to get the most delicious end result. It’s the chef’s principle, the best ingredients get the best results.
Ingredients For Making An Amazing Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino At Home
The ingredients are easily found in your local stores or online:

The method of elaborating this tasty copycat Starbucks mocha cookie crumble recipe only takes a few minutes.
Start by brewing a double shot of espresso. If you don’t have a home espresso machine, make a moka coffee or an Aeropress. Brewed coffee still works, but is lighter tasting.
Let your coffee cool down.
Add your ingredients: the milk, java chocolate chips, your crushed Oreos (save one!). Add your mocha sauce and blend well at a low speed for about a minute to mix your ingredients.
Add half a teaspoon of xanthan gum and add your crushed ice and mix at a medium speed and then a high speed.
The ideal consistency is smooth with a chunky consistency.
Prepare your tall glass and add a mocha drizzle along the interior of your tall glass. Pour your Frappuccino mixture into your glass and top with whipped cream and decorate with your spare Oreo cookie. Cut it half and place it as a decoration. Crush the other half and add the cookie crumbs to the whipped cream.
Add a drizzle of chocolate sauce to the whipped cream.
Serve and enjoy.
