How to Make a Frappe

Save money and time by making a blended frozen coffee drink from the neighborhood cafe right at home.


  • Step 1: Put the instant coffee, water, and sugar in the blender and blend on medium speed for 20 to 30 seconds, until the mixture is combined.
  • TIP: Add flavored syrup if you'd like.
  • Step 2: Add the ice cubes to the mix and blend on medium-high speed until the ice cubes are broken and the mixture looks like a smoothie.
  • Step 3: Slowly pour the frappe mixture into a tall glass and let it settle for about a minute. Froth will develop and float to the top of the drink.
  • Step 4: Serve as is, or top with a generous dollop of whipped cream for an extra-decadent treat.
  • FACT: The first coffee frappe was served in 1957 at the Thessaloniki International Trade Fair in Greece.
