Author Notes: This Starbucks-inspired recipe is cheaper, healthier and maybe even tastier then the classic Frappuccino. Customize it by adding your favourite flavours like mocha or strawberry and enjoy this on a hot summer day! —The Good Cook
Makes: 1 frappuccino
tablespoons Sugar (plus more if necessary)
cup 2% Milk (cold)
cup Crushed Ice
1 - 1 1/2
teaspoons Vanilla Extract
Optional Flavours: Cinnamon, Mint Extract, Strawberry, Chocolate/Cocoa, Coffee, Mocha, Caramel
- In a small saucepan, combine water and sugar over medium heat. Stir until sugar has completely dissolved. Bring to a boil then set aside and let cool.
- In a blender, place milk, ice, vanilla extract and any other flavours you wish. Add simple syrup and blend until smooth and frothy.
- Pour into your favourite glass and enjoy! Serve with whipped-cream if desired.
