Frappuccino is a registered trademark of Starbucks and is the name of a blended ice beverage which is sold in every Starbucks store. It is also sold in the form of a bottled coffee beverage in stores across the US.  Frappuccino is a combination of frappe and cappuccino, an Italian style coffee with a topping of frothed milk. It is unclear whether frappe is taken from frappé a Greek iced coffee or from the New England term for a thick milkshake frappe (pronounced "frap"), both of which derived from the French word frappé.

Similar frozen coffee drinks were served starting in 1988 by the Seattle chain Cinnabon under the names Mochalatta and Caramelatta. Dunkin' Donuts serves a similar drink called Coolatta.

Frappuccinos can be made with any type of Starbucks syrup. Core flavors include Vanilla, SF Vanilla, Cinnamon Dolce, SF Cinnamon Dolce, Hazelnut, SF Hazelnut, Toffee Nut, Peppermint, Raspberry.. These are simply called as a "[Syrup] Coffee Frappuccino", and are served without whipped cream unless otherwise specified.
