Top Frappe Mixes for Home
Frappes or Frappuccinos are some of the most popular drinks both independent and national cafes - delectable with complex flavours that can have you craving it on a daily basis. Making them at home ca be a daunting task if you don't know where to look, so we've compiled a list of possible products.
David Rio Chai Frost Frappe
The newest entrant to the market, David Rio is known for high-quality powdered chais and the Tea Frost Frappe doesn't disappoint. Each 64-oz bags makes 16 servings of a 16 oz drink. This is one of the few chai-based frappes on the market, adding a shot of espresso to the mix will give it some extra flavour and caffeine. Highly recommended.
Ghirardelli White and Chocolate Frappe Classico
Ghirardelli is a chocolate company through-and-through, and their expertise shines in this frappe mix. A true chocolate-based frappe, both the regular Hot Chocolate Frappe Classico and the White Chocolate Frappe Classico are simple to make and frothe up to a delicious frappe in seconds. Add as much espresso or strong coffee as you like for a little extra kick.
Torani Chocolate Sauce and White Chocolate Sauce
Much like the Ghirardelli, Torani's formulations are some of the best on the market for sauce-based frappes. The emulsifiers in the sauce cause the drink to frothe up for an authentic frappe experience right from home. Being a sauce as opposed to the two powdered products above, this tends to leave less of a powdery mess and a sauce pump can be purchased to make measuring simple and consistent. Like the others, add as much espresso or strong coffee as you'd like.
Adding some additional flavours can add a layer of complexity to your frappe that makes it yours. Probably the most common flavour is Vanilla, which compliments nearly any dairy-based beverage. We strongly recommend trying both the French Vanilla Syrup and Vanilla Bean Syrup as well, to get the taste juuuust right.
