What is a Turtle Frappe?

In its simplest form, a frappe is an iced coffee drink typically made from instant coffee, water, sugar, and milk. So then what is a turtle frappe and how do you make it?

A turtle frappe is a specialty frappe made with flavors based on Turtle nut clusters. Specifically, it is a frappe made with caramel syrup, chocolate syrup, and pecans added to it.


Frappe vs. Frappuccino

Nowadays, frappes and Frappuccinos are often used interchangeably to describe blended, iced and foamy coffee drinks. However, despite many similarities, frappes and Frappuccinos are subtly different drinks. First, the most important distinction is that Frappuccinos are trademarked by Starbucks and are sold exclusively by them. This technically means that you can only get Frappuccinos from Starbucks. Frappes on the other hand are not trademarked and can be commonly found in many cafes and restaurants.

Another difference between frappes and Frappuccinos is that frappes are suppose to be made with instant coffee while Frappuccinos are suppose to be made from blending cappuccinos and milkshakes.
