Starbucks Cookie Crumble Frappuccino Recipe
Making your Starbucks mocha cookie crumble frappuccino at home is easy, with no difficult-to-find ingredients, many of which you may already have at home. No special equipment is needed other than a blender.
Let’s get to the ingredients list.
- 8 Oreo Cookies.
- Half a cup of nonfat milk.
- 4 Or 5 Tablespoons of Hershey’s sugar-free chocolate syrup.
- Double shot of espresso or 120 ml of moka pot coffee.
- Half a cup of Hershey’s semi-sweet chocolate chips
- A cup of crushed ice.
- Whipped cream.
- Sugar-free chocolate shaving (optional).
A tall 12 oz (360 ml) mocha cookie crumble frappuccino at Starbucks has 350 calories, 40 grams of sugar and 17 grams of fat. This is the reason why I’ve opted to use nonfat milk and sugar-free ingredients where possible.
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients
Collect your ingredients: the Oreos, nonfat milk, sugar-free chocolate sauce, and sugar-free chocolate chips.
Step 2: Brew You Shots Of Espresso
Use your favorite premium quality dark roast coffee and brew two great shots of espresso. If you don’t have an espresso coffee maker, a moka pot coffee will get you the top quality coffee that you need. Brew a little more than a double shot: brew 120 ml (4 oz) to get the strong coffee that you need.
An Aeropress will also produce the strong base of coffee that you need. Don’t be concerned if your coffee gets cold as this is not a hot coffee beverage.
Step 3: Add Your Ingredients To Your Blender
Add all your liquid ingredients to your blender: Your non-fat milk, coffee, chocolate chips, your sugar-free chocolate syrup. Crush your Oreos and add them too. Leave one spare for later!
Step 4: Blend It
Blend your ingredients at a low speed for about 1 minute to mix your ingredients well. Add your crushed ice and mix at a high speed for another minute or two until you get the consistency that you desire.
I advise that you add your ice slowly and in stages as this plays a large factor in the thickness of your frozen coffee beverage.
Step 5: Prepare Your Glass
To be extra fancy you can add a chocolate swirl using your sugar-free chocolate syrup on the inside of your glass. Use a tall glass as a tall glass is better. Add whipped cream, chocolate syrup and crumble half an Oreos cookie to the bottom of your glass.
Pour your frappuccino mixture into your glass. Top your drink with vanilla whipped cream and a mocha drizzle using your chocolate syrup and crumble the other half of your remaining Oreo cookie.
Decorate with sugar-free chocolate shavings.
Drink and enjoy.
