Do you have certain drinks you love during the summer? Personally, I am a big fan of shakes and Starbucks Frappuccinos. Sometimes, I even like getting some of the Starbucks drinks that don’t even have coffee, especially when I don’t want any more caffeine. One drink that I have enjoyed for quite some time is their vanilla frappuccino. This delicious drink is the right mix of creamy vanilla and milk, reminding me of a rich milk shake. Unfortunately, like most Starbucks drinks, it is quite expensive, guaranteeing it is something that I can’t get often. Luckily I found the perfect solution – make it at home.
With some trial and error, and the help of a friend, we finally came up with a copycat Starbucks vanilla frappuccino. This recipe is extremely easy to make and not that expensive. Actually, I was a bit embarrassed how easy it is to make since we have all the ingredients in our house ALL THE TIME. We think you will love this recipe just as much as us and have a new favorite summer recipe. So, what do you think, does our Copycat Starbucks Vanilla Frappuccino Recipe hit the mark or do you think we need to go back to the drawing board?
