The Easiest Homemade Frappuccino Ever!

I posted this super easy homemade frappuccino recipe on my blog when I first started blogging but this stuff is so good it deserved another post with a video!

My husband is a huge coffee lover and told me that he wouldn’t be mad if this homemade frappuccino was always in the refrigerator. It’s the best thing in the world when you come home from a crazy day and it’s waiting for ya.

The first thing I do when I get home on a hot, summer day is take off my shoes, fling my bra across the room, pour me a tall glass of frappuccino, grab a magazine and head for the couch! Ahhhhhh. Best. Feeling.Ever.

This homemade frappuccino is the easier method I’ve come across in long time. It sure beats having to wait 8 hours for steeping like most homemade frappuccino recipes. It’s super creamy, sweet, and smooth. Trust me, you’ll never buy those bottles of overpriced frappucinno’s once you try this recipe. It’s even good hot.

You can certainly dress it up with chocolate and caramel syrup and top it with whipped cream and toffee bits, but I love it plain Jane.

Watch me make this easy  homemade frappuccino from start to finish!!

The Easiest Homemade Frappuccino Ever!
  • 6 cups cold water
  • ¾ cup coffee ( I used chocolate mocha flavor)
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  1. Brew coffee to full strength.
  2. In a blender add sweetened condensed milk and hot coffee.
  3. I make coffee ice cubes with the leftover coffee that won't fit into the blender.
  4. Blend until smooth and creamy. Be sure that all of the condensed milk on the bottom of the blender is mixed in.
  5. Refrigerate until cold.
  6. Serve over ice and enjoy.
~TIPS~ I LOVE using flavored coffee with this recipe. My favorite is chocolate mocha, vanilla, mocha, and caramel. This frappuccino is sweet so you may want to add the condensed milk a little at a time and taste after mixing. 14 oz (1 can) is the perfect balance for me, especially since I'm serving it over ice, which can water it down and the coffee cubes are super strong.


  1. This is off the chain! I just finished drinking me a cup and i’m going for round 2. I love it and it is so easy. Its the best one I have ever tasted.

  2. I made a pitcher of these two nights ago and it was delicious. I followed the recipe to the tee and then added a cup of International Delight’s Cold Stone Brownie Sundae Creamer to the finished product. It was amazing and extremely easy. I don’t think I will ever buy boxed iced coffee again. Thanks.

  3. This is a great recipe!! I have been looking for a recipe because I heart frappes and iced coffee. I really need it in my life. Thanks!! (5 stars*****)

  4. I made this last night and I am really enjoying it! I used New England Coffee brand in the chocolate cappuccino flavor. Absolutely delicious over ice with the sweetened condensed milk. My only gripe was that it was a little too much on the sweet side (and I love sweetness) with the whole can of sweetened milk with the 6 cups of coffee. It’s a matter of personal preference but an easy fix by either adding less of the milk or just brewing more coffee than the recipe calls for. I will be making it again and switching up with fun flavors of coffee. Thanks!

  5. This was amazing! I used all of the coffee (6 cups) and made a little more for the cubes. I never knew that the condensed milk was so sweet so the extra cubes of coffee balanced the sweetness. Definitely a drink that i will be making all year around. Thanks again Monique *5 STARS*

  6. We are saving every penny to pay off credit cards and move in a year. One sacrifice WOULD HAVE BEEN frappuccinos… Not anymore!

    We tried our first batch with Folger’s Caramel Drizzle and oh my god it is good! I can’t wait to try it with all the other flavors!

    Thank you!

    P.S. I found your recipe googling diy frappuccino and I am loving your site! I can’t wait to try your sister’s baked mac n cheese!

  7. Wonderful! Love sweetened condensed milk, like thai iced coffee or thai iced tea, right? Mmmm. Delish. This is one thing I could care less the calorie count, so yummy.

    (PS re the previous comment. I have heard “you are a beast!” Many times as a compliment. Like, someone is the bomb, the coolest, they did something someone else cant imagine. Or, it could have been a typo. Just saying. )

  8. My church members and I decided to try this recipe for church fundraiser in the mornings before service and it is the easiest and best tasting frappuccino we have ever made. we thought the condensed milk would be too sweet but it was perfect! thank you!!!

  9. Hi Monique,

    My husband and I just made the iced coffee…yummy! We LOVE it!!! Thanks and I love your site.

  10. I really want to make this but I got confused with the video.
    Can you clarify how much water you added to the coffee maker? It looks like you put 2 cups but I’m not sure what size measuring cup you used and you never really say. Your recipe says 6 cups of water and 3/4 cups of coffee but it looks like you put much more coffee in than the milk. The pot looked like you had somewhere between 6-8 cups of coffee with what you made but again, no real clarification on how much. The 6 cups of water, I never seen put in unless the 6 cups was the about of water and the 3/4 was the ground coffee??

  11. I’m not a coffee person but the picture had me curious enough to try it. I even lucked out and found the very brand of coffee you used in recipe (video)…delish! Really enjoy your videos… short, great detail, without excess yapping!

  12. LOVE IT!!!! It’s sooooo good and very addictive!!! Thank you for the recipe (:

  13. Made this as well as I could according to your recipe! It’s sooo good! It’s 12°F here where I am right now but I still love it! I also found out that if you pour a little rum into it you’ll get quite a decent drink! A little bit like white Russian or a not so creamy Baileys.

  14. Wow this is AWESOME!!!
    And soooo easy too….


  15. Love the Recipe! I am a Nurse and I work nights so this is just what I needed! Thank you!

  16. Made this with Italian raost coffee in my Keurig first, then added cocoa powder. AMAZING! :)

    how would i make horchata frappuccino?? do you have a recipe i could try or any ideas. this one you posted sounds yummy i’m gonna try it. thanks.

  18. I Made This COMPLETELY Wrong, But It Still Turned Out Yummy! :3

  19. This was a delicious coffee!

  20. Wow, you use almost the same recipe like I do. There is noting better than nice, cold cup of frappuccino. :) Great work.

  21. I am obsessed with coffee and this looks delicious!! Does the condensed milk help make it the perfect consistency? I hate when I try to make blended coffee drinks and they are icy and watery. This looks incredible!!

  22. Here’s my favorite so far:

    Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino

    Here’s a delicious, rich, chocolate mocha Frappuccino you can make at home in about a minute. The pudding is the secret to a rich, thick, non-watery drink. You can also use instant pudding powder.

    The calories are about 120 for 12 oz.

    I think this tastes better than the one from Starbucks, and it doesn’t cost $ 4.00 for 12 oz.

    1 cup Vanilla Almond Milk ;
    1/2 cup Coffee Mate French Vanilla Creamer – sugar free (liquid creamer) ;
    1/3 cup powdered non-dairy coffee creamer ;
    2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder ;
    2 Tbsp instant coffee crystals ;
    1 (3.25 oz) Jello Vanilla Pudding Snack Pack (prepared pudding cup) – sugar free ;
    2 cups ice cubes ;

    Add ingredients to blender in order given.
    Blend on HIGH for 45-seconds or until smooth.

    Makes about 4 cups. 48 oz.

  23. Since I didn’t have and sweetened condensed milk (and didn’t feel like going out to buy any), I just used the 6 cups water and 3/4 cup coffee grounds to make iced coffee. After brewing, I placed the coffee in the refrigerator and when I wanted some iced coffee, I poured some iced coffee in a glass that contained ice, half and half, and agave nectar. So good!

    The coffee is strong enough that that addition of ice doesn’t dilute the flavor. Love it!

  24. OH MY GOSH!!! who would have known this combo was soooo delicious! I honestly had doubts when I was gonna try it. Instead of using the chocolate mocha, I got french vanilla and oh my goodness!! It is better then star bucks! I have a huge jug in the fridge waiting to cool down(:

  25. call me dumb but I was confused by the ingredients at first (luckily I figured out what to do before making it). For me, I usually say “coffee” when referring to the finished product and “grounds” when referring to what you add in to make the coffee so I was thinking we were only using 3/4 cup brewed coffee. Maybe personal preference but not sure if others would be confused by it. Luckily I realized when watching the video and how you poured in a whole lot more of 3/4 cup into the blender!

    When I made it, rather than using a blender (which I hate cleaning), I just poured everything into a pitcher and used a wisk to stir which turned out great. I decided to make 2 batches since my coffee maker is quick so now I have a pitcher-full of this all in like 10 minutes :) Also, to make mine “mocha” I added in some unsweetened cocoa powder. I was shocked to see theres 120 calories in just 2 TB of the condensed milk–yikes! I’ll have to make sure I control myself with this lol great recipe, thanks!

    • Sarah ~ Too funny I thought the same thing about the 3/4 cup of coffee, I was like 3/4 c. Coffee and 6 c. Water wow this is really gonna be watery…. Lol ….. I thought I was the only one that thought that’s what Monica ment….

  26. Oops forgot to rate.

  27. Oh no! The frappuccino spilled! I made this today cuz I just got a new blender. I heart FRAPPUCCINO!

  28. Sounds good..but I’m going to try it with sweetened evaporated milk instead. My family uses condensed milk in a lot of their dessert dishes….it’s super sweet.

  29. You are a BEAST Girl! Love this!

  30. Soooo, I just made my first homemade Mocha Frappuccino, a lil bit different then the one you made (just added chocolate syrup, and blended it with ice)…. Came out Boooooomb Diggity!! ;)
    Can’t wait to try more of your recipes =)

  31. Monique, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!! I just luuuuuvvvvv iced coffee and can’t wait to try this. You are the best! BTW, so proud of your appearance on the Dr Oz show. :-)))) Blessings, LaVonne
