A Frappuccino is a trademarked iced coffee drink popularized by coffee giant Starbucks. Frappuccinos do not contain a robust coffee flavor, due to their cream, flavors, and milk.

The real problem some people have with frappuccinos isn’t the calories, but the caffeine, which is why it is possible to order frappuccinos without coffee.

Frappuccinos do also bear some similarities to Lattes, but the primary distinction is that a Frappuccino is a cold drink while a latte is best served hot.

Again, lattes are a combination of espresso and steamed milk, while frappuccinos are made by adding a variety of flavors and syrups to brewed coffee.

Frap roast, a form of instant coffee, is in Frappuccinos. You make it by mixing coffee powder with water.

The main difference between Frappuccinos and creme Frappuccinos is that the latter doesn’t contain frap roast.
