Transcript:Mayan Cherry FrappeHi, I'm Heather Perry with the Coffee Klatch for About.com Food. Today we're at the Ultimate Barista Challenge, and I'm going to show you how to make the Mayan Cherry Frappe.
Mayan Cherry Frappe IngredientsTo make the Mayan Cherry Frappe, you're going to need a few ingredients:
- pint of cherry vanilla ice cream
- 1/2 ounce Scharffen Berger chocolate, or any dark chocolate
- 1/2 ounce 60 percent cacao Mayan chocolate, or any bittersweet chocolate
- chocolate sauce
- cherry sauce
- 16-ounce cup of ice
- 6 shots espresso
- whipped cream
- vanilla powder
Combine the Chocolate and Vanilla PowderWe're going to start off by putting our chocolate at the bottom of the blender. You then want to add two scoops of your vanilla base.
Add the EspressoNext, you're going to add your espresso. You want to make sure you are using shots of really good crema base, as you can see here. We're going to add that right on top.
By using the chunk chocolate as I did, it's going to give you a nice texture in the drink.
Blend the IngredientsNext, you're going to want to add your cherry vanilla ice cream, along with your ice. And we're just going to blend this together.
You can give that a second to rest, and go ahead and lace your cup with your chocolate sauce. Pour your drink right in, nice and creamy and frothy.
Top the Drink With Whipped CreamYou then just want to top it with a little whipped cream and a little bit of your cherry syrup. And there you have the Mayan Cherry Frappe.
