Fall Frappuccino Roundup

Fall Frappuccino Roundup

In our hearts, it’s fall already but some days the weather just isn’t getting the picture that it needs to cool down. Until those cooler days start to roll in we can get our fall drink fix with some fall flavored Frappuccinos to hold us over. So keep reading for some of the tastiest fall Frappuccino recipes that are simple to make at home and packed with fall flavor!


Tips for Making Frappuccinos at Home

The base of any frappe is a coffee base and a milk base. Most coffee shops that you get your frozen beverage from have their own mix that they use but since we are making ours at home we are going to do things differently. To make a Frappuccino at home you can use either espresso or cold brew as your coffee base and then whatever milk you prefer (it’s your coffee — you can do what you want to!).

If you use espresso you will need to use 2oz of espresso per Frappuccino (we recommend using Real Good Coffee Co “strong”  espresso for these recipes). The trick for using espresso for your frozen beverage is to add more ice to the blender to make up for the hot liquid melting some of the ice. So instead of two cups of ice, it should be two and a half cups of ice so you still get that slush-like consistency.

If you don’t have an espresso machine or maybe you just prefer cold brew -- then you are in luck! Cold brew is perfect to use for Frappuccinos since it won’t melt the ice down the way a hot shot of espresso will. The trick is to steep your Real Good Coffee Cold Brew for about three hours longer than normal to make sure your cold brew is REALLY strong to counteract the syrup in the Frappuccino. (You might want to label this cold brew for just Frappuccinos so you don’t drink it on its own. Nobody likes coffee jitters.)

The amount of ice you use matters! The less ice, the more liquidy it will be and the more ice you have the thicker it will be. Just remember, it is easier to add ice to your blender than having to add more liquid and risk having your coffee be disproportionate.

Now that we have those few tips out of the way, let’s get to the recipes! The recipes below will all use cold brew as the coffee base since that is the most easily accessible. If you prefer to use espresso then just swap out the cold brew for two ounces of espresso instead.


Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino

You can’t say anything about fall without something pumpkin spice being involved — it’s essential. If you don’t normally like pumpkin spice from a coffee shop, make sure and try out this homemade pumpkin frappe before you write it off forever.



Pour all of the ingredients into a blender (except the whipped cream) and blend on high speed until smooth. If the Frappuccino is too watery then add in more ice; if it is too thick add in a little more coffee or milk to thin it out.

Pour the Frappuccino into your glass of choice and top off with whipped cream, sprinkle a little pumpkin spice on top, and enjoy!


Snickerdoodle Frappuccino

Warm snickerdoodle cookies straight out of the oven…it just doesn't get more mouth-watering than that. Ok well, this snickerdoodle Frappuccino comes pretty close to it so you're going to have to try it and see.



  • 1 cup of Real Good Coffee Co. Cold Brew
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 2oz white chocolate sauce
  • 2oz cinnamon syrup (recipe below)
  • 2 cups of ice
  • Whipped cream (optional)
  • Cinnamon

In a blender, pour all of the ingredients except the whipped cream and cinnamon. Blend on high speed until everything is blended well. Once you have the desired consistency, pour your coffee into a glass and top off with whipped cream and cinnamon powder.


Cinnamon Syrup

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 4-5 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla

Cook one cup of water, one cup of sugar, and cinnamon sticks over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture begins to have a dark amber color. Cook for about 10-15 minutes,  add one tablespoon of vanilla and then remove from heat.


Butterscotch Frappuccino

Fall is equivalent to Halloween which means that candy is calling! This butterscotch Frappuccino might be calling even louder because it is so delicious. One sip of this butterscotch Frappuccino and you’ll wish you were on a hay ride at a pumpkin patch.



  • 1 cup of Real Good Coffee Co. Cold Brew
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree
  • 2oz caramel syrup
  • 2oz hazelnut syrup
  • 1 tablespoon agave
  • 2 cups of ice
  • Whipped cream (optional)
  • Caramel drizzle (optional)

In a blender, pour in all of your ingredients except for the whipped cream. Blend on a high speed until you get the desired texture for your Frappuccino. Once you have the desired consistency, pour it into your glass of choice and top off with whipped cream. If you want to get really wild, squeeze some caramel drizzle on top as well for a deliciously eye-catching beverage!


Caramel Apple Spice Frappuccino

While this Frappuccino doesn’t have coffee in it, it would be wrong to not have something apple-flavored on a fall drink list. So maybe just make this when you are wanting to enjoy something a little sweet instead of needing to stay awake.



  • 1 cup of Real Good Coffee Co. Cold Brew
  • 1 cups apple juice
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 2oz cinnamon syrup
  • 3oz caramel syrup
  • Whipped cream (optional topping)
  • Caramel drizzle (optional topping)

Pour all of these ingredients into a blender and blend on high speed. Once you have the desired consistency pour it into your glass of choice. Top off with whipped cream and caramel drizzle for a show-stopping beverage!
