Mocha FAKE-acinno


Like those rich expensive coffee drinks? Here is a recipe for a fake Starbucks Mocha Frappacino (or rather FAKE- A- Cinno) from Gourmet Slueth.com that is pretty good. At least I liked it.
Disclaimer:This is a copycat recipe and not the actual propriety recipe that is property of Starbucks. The are approximations. For the real thing, visit your local Starbucks.


Ingredients
6 cups double-strength freshly brewed dark roast coffee
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, plus additional cocoa powder for garnish
2 cups nonfat milk

Instructions
Fill ice-cube trays with half of the brewed coffee and place in the freezer. In a bowl, combine the remaining brewed coffee, cocoa powder and milk and stir to dissolve the cocoa. Cover and chill.

When the ice cubes have frozen, transfer them to a kitchen towel and, using a hammer or mallet, crush the cubes. Fill 4 glasses with the crushed ice and divide the coffee-cocoa mixture evenly among them. Dust the top with cocoa powder and serve.

I've made fake fraps with leftover coffee brewed strong, ice cubes, and vanilla soymilk (or soy ice cream). I've never frozen the coffee, but I have done that with green tea when I was making their green tea raspberry fraps at home.
