Frozen Mocha Frappuccino

Frozen Mocha Frappuccino, never let coffee go to waste again!
Frozen Mocha Frappuccino, never let coffee go to waste again!

I love a good cup of coffee. So does the hubby. We start out the day with a pot of coffee. Now that my son is in high school, he thinks he’s entitled to a cup of coffee on school days. I really wish my hubby hadn’t said yes to this. I was against it. It messes with the coffee to person ratio in our house.

Here’s the deal. I’m not a morning person. I never have been. Back in my single days, I loved sleeping in and taking a later shift for work. My hubby, luckily has always known this about me. That I’m not a morning person. And he’s always been kind to me in the mornings. Bringin me my first cup of coffee before I’m even out of bed. He IS a morning person.

What’s even better than having your first cup of coffee in the morning without ever getting out of bed? Having your kids also make sure to bring you that cup of coffee. With the sugar and cream perfectly measured. I’m always awake when my coffee is brought in, I just don’t like getting out of my warm bed right away in the morning. Depending on who brings in the coffee, we might have some snuggle time (the youngest) or just a quick hug and “Love you mama” from my son or some chat time with the middle one.

So I love my morning coffee time in bed. Now that my son is drinking coffee though, it’s messing things up. We use larger mugs for our morning coffee. Our 10 cup coffee pot make 4 perfect cups of coffee for the hubby and me. Two cups for hubby and two cups for me (and I do get my own second cup.)

There is no “extra” coffee for another cup. We have to make another half pot just so my son, who in my opinion is too young for morning coffee, can get a cup. Now I could go ahead and have a third cup, and there are some morningings I do. But usually, that extra coffee just gets dumped down the drain, wasted. And it’s good coffee, the hubby is particular about his dark roast.

No more. In addition to letting my son have coffee in the morning, the hubby is also allowing the girls to have Frappuccinos when we’re on a road trip. Or as a treat when he’s taken them to the store.

So now, in an effort to save us a few bucks (Fraps are expensive when you start getting them for the whole family) Any time we have “leftover coffee” I just pour it into Ice cube trays and freeze it. By the time the weekend rolls around we’ve got enough coffee cubes for everyone to have a Frappucino and it only cost us a few cents to make.

  1. It’s always sad to waste coffee, so I’m glad you found a way to use it!

  2. Glenda J says:

    Oh my!!!! That looks so good I’m going to have to make a pot of coffee just to make cubes :)

  3. Good Lord, Joan…that is fabulous!

    I’m not a morning person either. Never have been. But I could certainly change my ways with this.

    (I believe in ice cream or cold pizza for breakfast.)

    =) love.

  4. Well, I suppose technically I’m a morning person, since I can’t sleep much past 6:00 am, even on the weekends. That being said, I’m a real bear until I get my coffee. My hubby is NOT a morning person, but he does program the coffee to start so that it is ready and waiting for me when I get up! :-) I’m definitely trying this frap version soon – looks amazing!

  5. I’m a morning person, but part of that has to do with knowing my coffee will be waiting for me! I don’t like anyone brining it to me because no one can get it as sweet as I like it. Which is why this frappuccino would be perfect! I have to remember to save some coffee to try this!

  6. I’m sooooo going to try this recipe! I’m new to the whole Coffee world…Can you give me measurements to make the perfect Strong Coffee so that I can make the ice cubes?

    Thanks so much for sharing this at The DIY Dreamer.. From Dream To Reality!

    • Christine, your measurements will depend on your brand of coffee. I’d recommend checking the label for your coffee. Also, you may want to use a flavored coffee, there’s really no wrong way to make this!

  7. I’m Italian.. so I’m sure you can imagine that I perfectly understand your passion for coffee ( and chocolate). Especially now that Summer is arrived (at least here in Southern Europe) I’m am looking forward to drink loads and loads of Mocha Frappuccino from today on ;) I’ll blame you if I gain weight! ;)

  8. What a grand idea you came up with to solve your dilemma! I love this and will start trying it myself with any extra coffee. I think if would be quite easy to make it “skinny” too, love it!

  9. I have a serious frappe addiction. This just reminds me to go freeze more coffee cubes :)

  10. This is perfect Joan! LOVE it.

  11. What a perfect way to use leftover coffee! Definitely will be making these this summer!

  12. Yum! I was planning to cold brew some coffee yesterday so I could make a Frappucino today, but forgot. WIll probably blend this up and take it to class today disguised in a coffee mug. My students will never know the treat I’m enjoying as they watch a movie today :)

  13. Fraps are some of my very favorite summer drinks! I need to store up on frozen coffee cubes now that it is getting warmer here too!!!

  14. I need one now!! I am falling asleep! They look delish!

  15. Well duh {mental head slap}…freeze leftover coffee for a frap later. Genius!

  17. I’m not a coffee person but love coffee in desserts. I wonder if I’d like this. It looks amazing so maybe I’ll try one day. :)

  18. I have never been a morning person either…..and I LOVE Mocha Frapppuccinos, I have a gold card to prove it:) I will definitely be giving this a try really soon!!!

  19. This looks so yummy!!!!

    I’m your opposite – I love waking up early and then prepare a breakfast.
    I love also drinking coffee even if I am young. I can say I am a little addicted because I can’t imagine my day without this “magic drink”. Your coffee looks great :)

  22. Oh, I think you just saved my life! :)
    I hate dumping coffee…and I LOVE fraps, too! Perfect solution. :)
    I need one of these right now…
    Thanks so much!

  23. Thank you for linking up to Create & Inspire last week! Tonight we’re featuring YOU! Hope to see you there!

  24. SUCH a good idea, Joan! My coffee maker at home just broke (along with my heart) so I’m in the market for a new one. As soon as I get one, I’m going to freeze coffee so that I can make a frap whenever my greedy heart desires.

  25. Thanks for this recipe! I’ve tried several times to create something like this but couldn’t get the ratios right. I made this today and it was delicious! And just in case it helps someone else, for me 8 regular sized ice cubes equaled 1 cup of coffee.
