A true confession (that won't surprise any parents in the slightest): I need caffeine to start my day. A yummy coffee drink is just the ticket to jump-start my morning and get everybody dressed, fed, and off to school.

My usual beverage is an icy, bottled Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino. Pair it up with a Homemade Granola Bar or Oatmeal Cinnamon Waffle and I'm fueled up and ready to go.

However, it's been really hard to find bottled Mocha Frappuccinos in the store lately! Plus, they are doggone expensive. So I decided to try to make it myself.

After a bit of experimenting, I came up with this copycat recipe that might even be better than the bottled kind. It blends coffee, milk, cocoa and sugar, and adds sweetness and thickness with sweetened condensed milk.

Note: I strongly recommend that you use filtered water in this recipe, so you don't end up with an off-taste from your city water or well water. We love our Berkey water filter because it removes viruses, bacteria, and other contaminants. Learn more about Berkey water filters.
