Starbucks Frappuccino Recipe
Starbucks created the frappuccino and it has become one of the most popular drinks in North America. This DIY Frappuccino recipe will make it easy for you to save some cash as well as reduce the amount of sugar that is normally in one of these tasty drinks. The addition of pureed pumpkin and the lovely warm fall spices, will keep you coming back to this recipe!
Let’s break down the ingredients!
This recipe is super simple and the only equipment you need in a blender or food processor. You only need 7 ingredients to make this DIY Pumpkin Spice frappuccino .
Strong Coffee– I love the flavour of coffee so I brewed a very strong cup to ensure I got that coffee flavour coming through. The coffee balances so nicely with the sweetness from the caramel.
Milk. I used full fat milk but any milk will work for this recipe
Pumpkin puree– Canned pumpkin purée is an amazing ingredient to have on hand. Full with nutrients, and perfect for baking during the fall months.
Vanilla extract – The vanilla gives great flavour and if you can afford it, try to get the good stuff.
Spices – To create those iconic, warm, fall flavours I used cinnamon and nutmeg.
Maple Syrup– I am Canadian and use maple syrup in everything!
Xantham Gum (Optional)- Xantham gum can be found in the health food section of most grocery stores. This natural stabilizer makes this frappuccino a little bit more creamy and makes sure that all the ingredients blend well in the blender. Again, not necessary, but for best results I do suggest it.
Enjoy this one folks! A fun, easy treat to enjoy at home. Save the money and reduce your sugar!
