What Is A Frappe? (And How To Make One)

Our decadent black cherry frappe.

With the surge of coffee shops in the past few years, Frappes have become more of a widely discussed beverage. But what is a frappe really, you may ask? Well Frappe, from the French frapper (meaning to strike or hit), is used in English to refer to various uses of crushed ice. This is mostly used in reference to milkshakes or a foam covered coffee.  In the United States though, we have become a bit more lenient in the usage of the this word. So, essentially, a cold Frappe is any kind of blended drink. That’s why, here at Big Train, we refer to our Blended Ice Coffees and Blended Creme powdered mixes as Frappes! With over 20 Blended Ice Coffee Products and 25 Blended Cremes, Big Train offers over 45 Frappe drink mixes.

So now that you have a more finely tuned understanding of the drink, let’s discuss how to make a Frappe! As with all of our drinks, Big Train’s Frappes are extremely simple and quick to make. The hardest part is deciding which of our scrumptious flavors to use! Here’s what you do:
