Recipe Highlights

  • Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino (sometimes shorted to just White Mocha Frappuccino) is a caffeinated frozen coffee drink made in a blender. The drink is topped off with whipped cream.
  • The White Chocolate Crème Frappuccino is the caffeine-free version of this drink without coffee at Starbucks.
  • Mocha is a chocolate flavored coffee drink. A White Chocolate Mocha is a white chocolate flavored coffee drink.
  • All Starbucks Frappuccinos are made with a Frappuccino base syrup that turns an icy drink into one that’s smooth, creamy in texture. This recipe uses a homemade Frappuccino base syrup that should be made first and can be stored in the refrigerator to make Frappuccinos at any time.
  • This copycat recipe recreates the Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino using seven ingredients, including the homemade whipped cream and makes a grande size (16 ounces) drink.
  • This recipe uses instant coffee (just like Starbucks) so there’s no need for espresso or brewed coffee.

Ingredient Notes

White Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino ingredients.
  • Homemade Frappuccino base syrup
    You can’t make a proper Frappuccino without the Frappuccino base, which is made with sugar, water, and xanthan gum (thickener). Make a batch of this first.
  • White chocolate sauce
    The white chocolate flavor comes from a white chocolate sauce.
  • Instant coffee
    Instead of espresso or brewed coffee, Starbucks adds Frappuccino Roast, which is an instant coffee blend of Italian Roast and Signature Espresso. Use VIA Instant Italian Roast to get the closest flavor. You can also use whatever instant coffee you have.
  • Milk
    Whole milk is used to make Starbucks Frappuccinos, but you can use any milk you like. Whole milk will make your drink creamier though.
  • Heavy cream
    To make the whipped cream topping.
  • Vanilla syrup
    Starbucks uses vanilla syrup to flavor and sweeten the whipped cream. Use store-bought or homemade vanilla syrup.
  • Ice
    If possible, make ice using filtered water.

Expert Tips

  • For an efficient blend, add ice after you’ve added other ingredients into the blender. Don’t put ice into the blender first.
  • Make the homemade Frappuccino base syrup first. You can make it ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator.
  • Homemade Frappuccino base syrup is made using sugar, water, and xanthan gum. The xanthan gum is a thickener that creates that smooth Frappuccino texture. If you don’t want to use the base syrup, you can add simple syrup instead to match the sweetness, but the texture won’t be the same.
  • Using a handheld milk frother is my trick to making whipped cream quick and easy. The longer you whisk the heavy cream, the stiffer it’ll get. It should take about 30-50 seconds to get medium peaks. Spoon the whipped cream on top of your drink.
  • Homemade vanilla syrup is so tasty and so easy to make. Make a batch and use it all week to add vanilla flavoring to drinks and whipped cream.
  • Instead of vanilla syrup, you can flavor whipped cream using white chocolate sauce. Replace the vanilla syrup in the whipped cream with white chocolate sauce.
