If you love experimenting, you can make your pumpkin frappe at home. All you need are these pumpkin spice Frappuccino ingredients.
- Coffee / espresso

Coffee / espresso
Coffee is simple to brew using a coffee brewing pot at home. Also, cold being is alright, but it takes time to brew coffee using this method.
Preparing espresso is even more convenient and faster if you have a coffee maker.
A good coffee/espresso is vital for a refreshing frappe.
Simple Frappuccino syrup
You can’t get Starbucks Frappuccino syrup in the stores. The best way to get it is by preparing a simple syrup at home.
Just mix one part of water and one part of sugar and boil the mixture. Add a small amount of cream and espresso to make it a Frappuccino syrup.
Pumpkin spice sauce
Making a homemade pumpkin spice is the best way to enjoy authentic taste. The good thing is you can use pumpkin from your farm or buy canned pumpkin puree from the stores.
Making a pumpkin spice sauce needs the following,
- ½ cup pumpkin/ pumpkin puree
- 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
- 2 tablespoon gingers
- 2 tablespoon nutmegs
To prepare the sauce, put all the content in a blender. Then, blend the mixture until it turns into a semi-liquid. Use the amount you need and remnants put in an airtight container and store in a fridge.
Ice is easy to make at home, especially if you have a freezer. You need to use super clean water to ensure the quality of your frappe is top-notch.
Milk is essential in the preparation of Frappuccino. Therefore, choosing your milk is vital. Using 2% is alright, although you can also use whole and plant-based milk.
NB: Using plants doesn’t make your Frappuccino dairy free if you are going to use crème anywhere in the process.
