  1. It is frappucino roast (special coffee that doesn’t taste good on its own and when it’s warm), milk, frappucino base (a special base that’s sweet and makes the frappucino have great texture and mix well) and of course any syrup, matcha or mocha of your choice.

  2. A Starbucks frappuccino back in the day was made with the frappuccino base (which was a mixture of powdered coffee – think an early version of Via – and a “base” – which was sort of like a creamer, including sweetener, a dairy, some mocha, and various other random ingredients – this arrived at stores premixed and in a box, like soy milk) and then whatever syrups or additives (chips etc) would be required. The “creme” base was made with milk and a powdered mixture that contained some sort of dairy/cream, lots of sweetener, vanilla, etc (this came in a pre-measured bag that we’d just add and mix with the milk).
    After the base was measured out into the blender, we’d add in the requisite ice and any additives – pumps of syrup and/or things like the vanilla bean powder, green tea matcha powder, the chocolate chips for a java chip, etc.
    Then this was blended and usually topped with whipped cream and possibly a syrup drizzle (caramel or mocha) or topping like cinnamon (chai frappuccino), nutmeg (eggnog frappuccino), cinnamon sugar (cinnamon dolce frappuccino), or pumpkin spice (pumpkin spice frappuccino). Or sometimes the chocolate shavings or red sprinkles for Holiday.
    Now-a-days, they make frappuccinos differently. They use a coffee syrup concentrate sort of thing that they add a specified number of pumps per size, then they have a syrupy concentrate (I assume it’s that creamy syrup flavor that frappuccinos have) that they also add pumps of, then milk (whole, 2%, or nonfat as requested), then the syrups, powders, etc.
    At home in the summer, we make an easy, tasty variety using iced coffee (or via mixed strongly), milk, ice and syrups (tip: if you want your favorite syrup, you can actually purchase most of the syrup flavors from Starbucks themselves at under $10 for a large bottle – this excludes their mocha syrup, white mocha syrup, and pumpkin spice syrups – those are not for sale legally – the ones you find on ebay are stolen in some way). You can get all sorts of creative here too and use ice cream (coffee shake, anyone?) and all kinds of other options.
    If I was blending one at home, I would use this recipe to make four servings:
    Eight ounces of either double-strength iced coffee or one packet of Via mixed into eight ounces of water.
    Sixteen – Eighteen ounces of milk (you COULD use heavy whipping cream or half and half for more creamy and decadent variations).
    Six – eight pumps of Starbucks Vanilla syrup
    A generous helping of chocolate syrup (at home I often just use Hershey’s for ease of use, this is also really great if you use Ghirardelli or Godiva).
    Four cups of crushed ice.
    Any additives you want like chocolate chips (Ghirardelli mini semi-sweet chips work best for blending, I’ve found).
    Blend this up and adjust according to your taste – for thicker, add more ice, for thinner, add less. You could also halve this if your blender isn’t very big. The best thing is to simply adjust it to what you prefer – this is what we’ve come up with as delicious in our house, but may not be a favorite in yours.
    Also – the whipped cream. Starbucks whipped cream is my favorite. It’s made with heavy whipping cream and eight pumps of the Starbucks Vanilla syrup. Delicious. So delicious that I bought myself a whipped cream canister and charger setup to make it at home. SO WORTH IT! (This is useful for many things, from fresh berries to pies, and topping your homemade hot chocolate and coffee.)

  3. Frappuccino is a trademark brand of Starbucks Corporation, for a line of iced, blended coffee drinks.
    The frappuccino is believed to contain the following ingredients: powdered coffee mixed with cold water, whole milk, syrup, powder, flavoring ( of your choice), ice and whipped cream.

  4. A Frappucino is a bastardised version of the Greek Frappe.
    It tastes nowhere near as good, has too many calories.

    1 cup cold water
    Instant coffee
    Sugar (optional)
    Milk (optional)
    Ice cubes
    Shake it all up, and you’ve got yourself a real drink.

  6. Ok, here is the answer after working with them for more than 2 years.
    All the frappuccino has Milk, Ice & The base as what we call, which gives the sweet taste to your drink.
    Additionally it will have flavors what you ask for like caramel, mocha, Vanilla, Hazelnut, Chocolate Chips etc,.
    Then to make it look pretty we garnish it with some Whip or some sauces. That is it!

  7. well, it would depend on the flavor, but there are some similarities between frappuccinos.
    frappuccinos come in two categories: coffee based & creme based. coffee based fraps have coffee, creme base fraps don’t.
    a coffee based frappuccino will have:
    * frap roast (which is basically a powdered coffee mixed with cold water)
    * whole milk (unless you ask for a different milk to be substituted. the only frappuccino that i can think of that doesn’t come with whole milk as the standard is the horchata. that comes with almond milk)
    * the syrup/powder/flavoring (that’s gonna depend on the drink itself. the only fraps that don’t come with any syrup/powder/etc added are the coffee frappuccino & the espresso frappuccino)
    * ice
    * coffee base (this is a syrup that helps with the consistency of the drink. if there’s not enough base, the drink will be very chunky & icey. it has a coffee flavor but does NOT contain caffeine)

    a creme based frappuccino will have all the same elements except:
    * there won’t be any frap roast added, therefore making the drink un-caffeinated (aside from the green tea frappuccino & the chai frappuccino, since both matcha powder & chai contain caffeine).
    * co…

  8. Frappuccino roast, which is essentially reconstituted instant coffee, plus whole milk, and another “frappuccino coffee base”, which is gums, sweeteners, etc., and ice, blended in a blender.
