Who doesn’t love an ice cold Frappuccino on a warm (or even a cold) day! Frappuccinos taste amazing, keep us cool, and provide us with the coffee we need to stay functioning all day long! They’re basically perfection in a cup. However, let’s face the facts, they can be pretty expensive especially if you’re buying one or multiples a day. That’s why we thought we’d share how you can whip these babies up at home! That’s right, frappuccinos are no longer an indulgence just to be savored at your local Starbucks, they can be recreated in your very own kitchen.
Here’s different types that you can make at home!
Here’s what you’ll need to create the all-time favorite caramel Frappuccino at home:
2 cups of ice
1 cup of brewed coffee that’s been cooled
1 cup of low fat milk
3 tablespoons of sugar (you can use raw or white)
1/3 cup of caramel sauce
Blend all of the ingredients together in a blender until you’ve got the consistency that you desire and serve in tall glasses! It’s that easy!
For this recipe you’ll need to make the vanilla syrup on your own, but there’s no need to worry! It’s ridiculously simple. What you’ll need is
2 cups of water
3 cups of sugar
2 tablespoons of vanilla bean paste
Make the syrup by heating the sugar and water together in a saucepan. Cook until the consistency gets thick and then remove from the heat. While it’s still warm add in the 2 tablespoons of vanilla bean paste and stir until mixed completely. Let the syrup cool. You can store this in your fridge for up to 3 weeks so you can make plenty of frappuccinos with it!
Now to make the entire drink here’s what else you’ll need
2 cups of ice
1 cup of milk
1 cup of brewed and cooled coffee
1/3 cup of the vanilla syrup you just prepared
Mix all of the ingredients together in a blender and top with lots of whipped cream!
As you can see from these two recipes the basics of making a Frappuccino are all the same, you can vary them in a number of different ways! Have fun with you flavors and let us know how they turned out in the comments section below!
