Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino on ice
I love an iced coffee drink in the afternoon and Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino is my favorite. No matter how hard I try, I can't duplicate the taste of the Mocha Frappuccino, even using ground Starbucks coffee. I have tried using chocolate syrup, cocoa, and even chocolate chips in coffee and still do not get the rich mocha taste of the Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino.
When I want to really treat myself I add whipped cream to the drink, but it is great tasting all by itself. I have tried other brands of iced coffee but none is as tasty and as satisfying as Starbucks.
While these bottled drinks are not cheap, at $1.25 each, they are considerably less expensive than going to Starbucks and buying a specialty coffee.
These Frappuccinos are made with reduced fat milk and Starbucks brewed coffee and have 180 calories each. That's not insignificant as far as calories go, but not as bad as a candy bar and I find these to satisfy my craving for chocolate. They are also available in coffee and vanilla flavors.
If you like an afternoon pick-me-up, you might want to try these iced coffees. They are available in almost any grocery store and are often on sale.
