Who doesn’t love a Mocha Frappuccino??
I have been known to indulge in one every now and then, but the problem is a) they’re not super cheap, and b) they’re 4 points, which I know, isn’t a TON but when you are really planning on saving those points for a snack, and then you have a not-so-filling frappuccino, it kind of messes with your day, ya know? Maybe it’s just me :)
Anywho, I found these awesome little Via packs in our pantry yesterday, and decided to have a go at making my own frap, and man, was it successful!
Basically, you can make any kind of frappuccino you want by adding a little (maybe a tsp.) of coconut extract for a Mocha Coconut, or some ground up 100 calorie Oreos for a Mocha Cookie Crumble, or some smushed raspberries or a banana for a different kind of taste… I’m just getting started!

Question: What is your favorite Starbucks drink?
I have so many, it’s hard to choose! I’d have to say the Mocha Coconut frappuccino, when it’s made really really well because the flavors of coffee, chocolate, and coconut work so well together :)
