My secrets to making greek frappes

Two things are needed to make frappes super quick and easy:

  1. The right kind of instant coffee. It MUST be Nescafe Greek instant coffee.
  1. Handheld milk frother which makes the instant coffee froth super quick.

Questions You May Have

What’s the difference between Greek instant coffee and regular?
Greek instant coffee is spray-dried while regular instant coffee is freeze-dried. The Greek instant coffee is easier to froth.

How do you pronounce frappe?
It’s FRAH-PEH.

I don’t have a handheld milk frother — what else can I use?
Put the instant coffee, sugar, and cold or cool water into a cocktail shaker or a jar with a tight lid and shake until it thickens and froths. (Should take less than a minute.)

What else can I sweeten the drink with?
Sometimes I get lazy and whip the instant coffee and water together then add ice and creamer.

Can I make this with less instant coffee?
Yes, I’ve made it with a teaspoon of instant coffee and it’s also good but has a little less of a caffeine kick.

Frappe Tips

  • Make it decadent by adding a scoop of ice cream instead of milk. (Feel free to take out the sugar in the recipe if you don’t want it too sweet.)
  • Froth instant coffee in a tall cup to prevent making a mess.
  • Use filtered cold or cool water for a better tasting drink.
Greek Frappe Ingredients

What You’ll Need

How to Make It

STEP 1: Combine instant coffee, sugar, and water in a tall cup.

2 teaspoons instant coffee, 2 teaspoons sugar, and 2/3 cup cold or cool water goes into a tall glass.

Use a tall glass so there isn’t a mess once the milk frother starts whipping together the ingredients.

STEP 2: Froth coffee.

The best and quickest way to make a Greek frappe is with a handheld milk frother.

After 15 seconds of whipping, froth will reach almost to the top of the glass.

STEP 3: Add ice.

1/2 cup of ice goes into the cup.

STEP 8: Add half & half.

I like the richness of half & half so that’s what I use (1/4 cup) but you can use any kind of milk you like.

Stir before drinking.
