Vanilla Frappuccino {Starbucks Copycat}

After basically perfecting my vanilla bean frappuccino a few years back, I have been dying to try making a straight-up vanilla frappuccino! What is the difference between these similarly named drinks? Well, the vanilla bean frappuccino is made without any coffee in it (it’s great for kids!) and it is closer to a milkshake in taste while a vanilla frappuccino has coffee in it.  Both taste great and I’m sure you will love this vanilla frappuccino recipe just as much as the vanilla bean frappuccino.

Ingredients

Instructions

Notes

  1. I suggest freezing coffee in an ice tray and using it in the
    recipe instead of water-based ice. It helps keep it from getting
    watered down as it melts.
