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. While there is caramel in this drink, it doesn’t taste too sweet!

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 6 ingredients to make this diy caramel 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

Caramel– Use what you can get your hands on. I simply used caramel from a squeeze bottle that is used to pour over icecream. If you want to go homemade, good on ya!

Vanilla extract – The vanilla gives great flavour and if you can afford it, try to get the good stuff.

Ice – I used 3 cups of ice for this recipe.

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.
