The Love Bean Frappucino


  1. For raspberry syrup:
    1 pound raspberries
    2 cups water
    1 cup sugar
  1. For the frappuccino:
    1 cup ice
    1 1/2 cups milk
    3 scoops vanilla bean ice cream
    1 teaspoon sugar
    1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 tablespoons raspberry syrup
  1. For the garnish:
    1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
    2 tablespoons sugar
    2 tablespoons raspberry syrup
    Chocolate curls


  1. To make raspberry syrup: Place raspberries in a medium saucepan with water, and bring to a boil. Once it starts to boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and let the raspberries cook for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the water is deep pink in color. Strain the raspberry liquid through a fine mesh strainer and return to the pot. Discard the berries. Add sugar to the liquid, and bring to a simmer. Let the syrup simmer for 5 minutes or until the sugar is completely dissolved and the syrup has thickened.
  2. To make raspberry whipped cream: In a stand-up mixer, whip heavy whipping cream with sugar until stiff peaks form. Add raspberry syrup and mix slowly to incorporate.
  3. To make the frappuccino: In a blender, blend together ice, milk, vanilla bean ice cream, sugar, vanilla extract, and raspberry syrup until smooth. Garnish with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
