A frappé, commonly known as a “frappuccino” when referring to a popular coffeehouse drink, is a blended beverage typically made with ice, milk, and flavored syrups or coffee, along with other ingredients like whipped cream or chocolate drizzle. The term “frappé” originated from Greece, where it refers to a foam-covered iced coffee drink.In the context of coffee, a frappé is made by mixing instant coffee, sugar, water, and ice in a shaker or blender until it becomes frothy and creamy. The mixture is then poured into a glass and often topped with whipped cream. Variations can include flavored syrups, milk, or ice cream, depending on personal preference.Outside of the coffee world, the term “frappé” can also refer to other blended beverages made with similar methods but with different ingredients, such as fruit frappés made with blended fruits, ice, and yogurt or milk. These non-coffee frappés are popular in many cafes and smoothie shops.
