Mocha Chocolate Chip Frappe

It's that time of the year when the temperature is getting hotter and the drinks are getting colder.  So, this weekend, I was on a mission to make the perfect Frappuccino to cool me down.  It all started with pouring our cooled, left over brewed Espresso into ice cube trays and freezing. (Any coffee brewed strong will work!) These little cubes are perfect for Iced Lattes too, so be sure to freeze your left over coffee every day and you will have a nice stash ready to go all Summer long! 

This weekend, though, I was all about the Frappe....and chocolate (of course!) so I started by blending the following ingredients: 6 coffee cubes, 2 large moderate scoops of chocolate ice cream, 1/8 cup of dark chocolate chips (or a small handful), and 2/3 cup of milk.  Blend well and then pour into a glass.  I topped with a few extra chocolate chips and Voila!  The most amazing Mocha Chocolate Chip Frappe!

Next time I might try adding caramel chips instead of chocolate...maybe even switch up the ice cream too!

Do you also make your own homemade coffee treats?  If so, what are your favorite flavor combinations?
