Does Mocha Frappuccino Have Coffee?

No coffee frappuccino syrup is used to make any of Starbucks' crème frappuccinos, including Caramel Ribbon Crunch and Vanilla Bean Creme Frappuccino.

Coffee drinks that are iced and blended and topped with whipped cream and flavored syrups are known as Starbucks Frappuccinos. It's just a cup of coffee mixed with ice cream (but not all of them contain coffee). There are as many options for flavoring a Frappuccino as there are for milkshakes.

The coffee used in the Mocha Frappuccino is a blend of Italian Roast and Signature Espresso from Frappuccino Roast instant coffee. Use VIA Instant Italian Roast or any other instant coffee you have on hand to achieve the most similar flavor to the real thing. Starbucks utilizes whole milk in their Frappuccinos, but you are free to substitute any milk you choose. Simply substitute milk for the coffee in the recipe for a no-coffee mocha frappuccino.

Specifying "X creme frappuccino" instead of "X coffee frappuccino" will remove the coffee from your drink. "I'd like a Pumpkin Creme Frappuccino please," I said. They should also omit the coffee from the recipe. Ask for a steamer if you want a hot drink, or a white mocha without the coffee if you want an iced drink.

A blended coffee drink with little to no coffee flavor, despite the fact that this one is a blend. Like chocolate milk with a little extra chocolate syrup. People that appreciate it are aware of what they're getting themselves into, so it's not that bad.
