This Greek-style frappé recipe will both cool and soothe in the hot summer months.
  • 3 tsp instant coffee
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 225 mls milk
  • Ice cubes
  • Splash of cold water
  1. Add your coffee and sugar to a jar.
  2. Now add enough cold water to just cover the coffee and sugar.
  3. Place the lid (tightly!) on the jar and shake rigorously for around 30 seconds. You will be able to feel the solution change in texture.
  4. When you have a creamy, frothy consistency, remove the lid.
  5. Add lots of ice cubes (we add one full tray - 18 cubes - between two frappes).
  6. Now add water and milk (if using) to taste.
As with all of our recipes, the calorie content in our Greek frappé recipe is approximate. It depends on how you prefer to drink your frappe.
Instant coffee is used over filter because this helps to create the froth.
The sugar and the coffee together create the creamy froth so if you have a sugar-free frappe, you won't get a thick, creamy froth.
For reference, the jars we use for our frappé are 450 mls. We fill them around half way with milk and water and let the froth reach the top of the jar.
