Easy Flavored Starbucks Frappuccinos

I have recently discovered what I would call an exact recipe for my favorite blended beverage at Starbucks the frappuccino. You know these things set you back at least 4 bucks and change. Here is an easy way to make them without a coffee pot or blender.

1 1/2 teaspoons instant coffee+1/4 cup cold water
3/4 cup milk (the more fat, the better) or use no sugar and just blend with whipped cream
2 tablespoons sugar
pinch of salt
16 ice cubes
1 tablespoon corn syrup
Add your flavour combination here (as listed below)

Blend in blender until no more ice chunks can be heard flying around. I have an old blender and it blends things very fine. Garnish with whipped cream out of the squirt can and homemade sauce (whatever syrup you put in the drink or with the vanilla Syrup outlined below). It will separate at first, but as you keep drinking, it will all mix back together (I just can't explain why this happens, you don't even need to drink all the liquid for this to happen).

Put the ice cubes in ziplock bag and hit with a frying pan to crush the ice. The things you learn in college!!!

Vanilla Syrup (to garnish drink with ONLY):
Take 1/2 cup corn syrup and add up to 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract or to taste.

Caramel:  Take 1 cup Smucker's Fat Free Sundae caramel sauce and add 5 tablespoons icing/confectioner's sugar dissolved in water and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or to taste. Add 1/4 cup of this mix per drink.

Mocha: Use 1/4 cup regular ice cream chocolate syrup.

Vanilla:  Use 1 teaspoon vanilla extract per drink.

Chocolate Brownie mix: Take 1/4 cup Chocolate syrup and 1-2 cubic inches of a brownie per drink.

Vanilla Caramel: Use both Vanilla and Caramel mixtures in the drink in the regular quantities each.

Coffee: Use no flavoring.

I am thoroughly addicted to this recipe and saving lots of money already!


  1. What about using Vanilla Almond milk with this idea? Lower in calories and would be a great flavor
