Sometimes we just don't feel like making a trip to Starbucks to get our Frappuccino fix, and that's totally OK. The good thing is that it's fairly easy to whip up a drink similar to a Starbucks Frappuccino at home with just a few ingredients. Starbucks does use a Frappuccino syrup, and unless you've got some of that sitting around, your at-home drink will be a little different, but it'll still be supergood! We're giving you the directions for a basic coffee Frappuccino, but it's really easy to adjust it to suit whatever flavor you want. If you want vanilla or caramel, you can either use flavored coffee in the recipe or add flavored syrups and sauces. You can also use whatever milk and sweetener suits your preference.
If you want an even easier option, though, you can simply use a bottled Starbucks Frappuccino and throw it in a blender with some ice for a pretty authentic blended Frappuccino. If you don't have any handy, though, check out the recipe ahead for a copycat Starbucks Frappuccino.
You can adjust this recipe to be any flavor you'd like by adding in a flavored syrup and flavored toppings.
