What Is Coffee Mousse?

This coffee mousse (also known as a coffee frappe or Greek frappe) is a cold coffee beverage made from instant coffee, water, sugar, and milk. The ingredients are mixed together vigorously, usually in a shaker or blender, until you get a frothy, creamy consistency. The drink is typically served over ice and can be enjoyed with a straw.

A coffee frappe is a popular summer drink in Greece but is enjoyed in various forms all over the world. It is a refreshing way to enjoy coffee on a hot day and can be customized with various flavors, such as chocolate, caramel, and vanilla.

Chocolate Mousse Variations

Chocolate Frappe: Add cocoa powder or chocolate syrup to the mix for a rich, chocolatey flavor.

Caramel Frappe: Add a drizzle of caramel sauce or dulce de leche to the mix for a sweet, decadent flavor.

Vanilla Frappe: Add vanilla extract or vanilla syrup to the mix for a subtle, sweet flavor.

Mint Frappe: Add a few drops of mint extract or a sprig of fresh mint to the mix for a refreshing, minty flavor.
