Starbucks-Like Frappuccino Recipe

Starbucks-Like Frappuccino Recipe

Prep Time 5 minutes
Servings 3 cups

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup Fresh Espresso
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 2-1/2 Cups Milk
  • 1 Tbsp. Pectin Optional

Instructions

  1. Add sugar to espresso; still until dissolved. Stir in remaining ingredients. Chill and serve cold.

Recipe Notes

Pectin can be found in the canning section of your grocery store and is used to thicken the drink. Unflavored gelatin can also be used as a substitute. I think the drink is just fine without adding either, so I leave them out.

Thank you to a friend for sharing this recipe on their Facebook page! I thought I remembered who it was, but couldn’t find the recipe later on. I tried! It didn’t hurt that cinnamon rolls already sounded good, then she posted an easy recipe like this! Monkey is only 6, but he did most of the work on these.
