How to Make a Frappuccino Less Watery

        If you have watched my YouTube videos, you might know that I have been making some kinds of Frappuccinos. If you have ever made a Frappuccino at home, you have probably encountered difficulty in making a less watery Frappuccino. Indeed, when I first tried making Mocha Frappuccino, my Frappuccino was pretty watery, so I tried really hard to figure out how to make a less watery one as perfect as Starbucks Frappuccino. Finally, I was satisfied with my Mocha Frappuccino and uploaded this video, How to Make Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino. Today, I'm going to share how to make a thicker Frappuccino with you. :)  

      If you add a pinch of xanthan gum, which increases in viscosity of a liquid, into your blender, your Frappuccino will have nice texture. However, you can actually make delicious Frappuccino without xanthan gum. I'm going to share three important things to make a thicker Frappuccino with you.

1. Chill the Frappuccino Base
      It's very important to cool down all liquid before blending such as espresso. I recommend you to chill the Frappuccino base, which is mixture of espresso, sugar, mocha syrup and milk, in the refrigerator for several hours.

2. Take Enough Time for Blending
      If the blending time is not long enough, the Frappuccino will be watery. The length of time depends on your blender, but I always blend my Frappuccino for over 40 seconds.

3. Using Less Liquid Is Better
      Use strong espresso instead of regular coffee because espresso has strong coffee taste with less liquid. If your Frappuccino is still watery, you can try espresso ice cubes (Just freeze your espresso). Espresso ice cubes really works. You can also try instant coffee instead of espresso.
