Someone was just asking for a Caramel Frappucino recipe so thought should share with everyone. Here's the recipe I've used for quite awhile. I prefer using 'or more to taste' of both the sugar and caramel but others I've served it to thought what I like is too sweet - LOL ;-)

Make your own frappe. If you've tried the mocha or caramel frappes out there, you know how expensive they are. Don't pour out your leftover morning coffee! I fix mine while it's hot with cream and sweet and low, and put it in a jar in the fridge. For an afternoon pick me up, I pour a cup in my blender, add a scoop of frozen whipped topping, 2 or 3 ice cubes and a tablespoon of caramel ice cream topping. Hit the frappe button on the blender and you're in for a treat! And it didn't cost you $3.00 a cup!

I am looking for the exact recipe for Starbuck's blended vanilla frappuccino.

I refuse to spend outrageous dollars at a Starbucks so I don't know if what you're talking about is made ahead of time and in their freezer or if made in front of you but why don't you ask a Starbucks Barista what all of the ingredients are and, if made in front of you, then watch her/him make one and then go home and experiment ;-)

Ad

The employees most likely have to sign an employment waiver stating they will not give out the 'exact amounts' and 'tips of how to make' but they do have to tell you the ingredients ;-) I am certain Starbuck recipes are copyrighted so you most likely won't get 'exact' measurements unless you get really, really, really lucky!

Hope this helps and let us know what you find/figure out :-)

I have created my own and one can cut back calories also. Instead of regular ice, make strong coffee. I use 10 cup coffee maker. Instead of adding 10 cups I add only two cups with same amount of coffee you use for 10 cups and it takes one cup to fill ice tray and freeze. Add ice to blender: coffee, add milk/cream: I add two tbsp. Nonfat Country Cream dried milk (tastes great), flavoring (I use chocolate syrup (which comes in both sugar and non-sugar), peppermint flavoring or add up to ten pieces of peppermint candy, blend and pour into large mug. I think I remembered everything, one can also use ice cream in place of milk. Just practice and makes super coffee drink.

So this is the actual Starbucks recipe for a Vanilla Bean Frappucino (no coffee): (I work at a Starbucks.)

Approx. 1 c. ice

2,3,4 pumps cream frappucino base (depending on size)

2,3,4 scoops vanilla bean powder (depending on size)

Approx. 1/4 c. whole, 2%, or non-fat milk (your choice)

Blend until smooth (by the way, 1 pump is approx. 1/2 oz.)

Top with vanilla whipped cream (Starbucks whipped cream is made with Vanilla syrup)

If you were going to make this yourself, I'd use more milk and add sweetener to taste for the base (they don't sell the base at Starbucks so you'll have to improvise). Then use vanilla extract or if you can find vanilla bean powder at a grocery store, use that. The cream frap base is basically just dried milk and sugar that we mix with more milk and water. Good luck, hope this helps! :)

I have tried to "like" coffee for many, many years; the smell of it brewing is wonderful, but I have never been able to acquire a taste for it. My daughter, however, recently insisted I try a McDonald's caramel frapuccino, even though it has coffee in it. Surprisingly, I loved it! I've had several since, but because it's a bit pricey, I'd love to make it myself. Do any TF family members have a recipe you could share? I sure would appreciate your help! Blessings.

Thank you so much! I can't wait to try the recipes. Any thought about what kind of coffee to buy? Would "instant" be o.k., or do I have to buy a coffee pot and do the whole "brewing" thing?

Thanks again. Blessings...

Caseye, try it with instant first then try purchasing a cup of regular coffee 'to go' from anywhere and try it that way too :-) If you like the regular brewed coffee flavor better than the instant then spend the money to purchase a coffee maker, filter and ground coffee and save the instant for 'in a pinch' :-)

Frozen Coffee Drink Recipes (Like Starbucks)

I don't have an exact recipe, but we mix up coffee and vanilla ice cream in the blender for a similar treat. And I agree with you no coffee is as yummy as Starbucks. We are thrifty, but I splurge on packaged Starbucks at Walmart (it's the cheapest) to enjoy on the weekends. (03/01/2005)

Here's another great recipe you can try. Mix 1 small box powered milk, same size powered sugar, and unsweetened cocoa. Mix all this together in a plastic container. This can be stored for quite a while this way. In blender pour your regular or lowfat milk to equal about 1 1/2 cup. Scoop about 1 cup of the powered mixture. Put in your favorite candy bar (Butterfinger is best or Heath Bar), 1 shot espresso and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and enjoy. (03/13/2005)

Frozen Coffee Drink Recipes (Like Starbucks)

I recommend an awesome ebook. Its $7, but you get 34 pages of Starbucks recipes. For a frozen coffee here is one from the book. If you want to buy it I got it from this link here: (if it doesn't work copy and paste it into your browser)

www.smalls257.phpnet.us/starbucks/templates4536/salesletter.html

Starbuck's Frozen Frappuccino

The Frappuccino is blended with strong coffee, sugar, a dairy base, and ice.
Make double-strength coffee by measuring 2 tablespoons of ground coffee
per cup (serving) in your coffee maker. The copy will be even more authentic
if you use Starbucks beans and grind them yourself just before brewing.

Coffee

  • 3/4 cup double-strength coffee, cold
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 cups ice

  1. Make double-strength coffee by brewing with twice the coffee required by
    your coffee maker. That should be 2 tablespoons of ground coffee per each cup
    of coffee. Chill before using.

  2. To make the drink, combine all ingredients in a blender and blend on high
    speed until ice is crushed and drink is smooth. Pour into two 16-ounce glasses, and
    serve with a straw.

Makes 2 large drinks.

Caramel: For this, add 3 tablespoons of caramel topping to the original recipe above and
prepare as described. Top each glass with whipped cream and drizzle additional
caramel over the whipped cream.

Mocha: For this version, add 3 tablespoons Hershey's chocolate syrup to the original
recipe and prepare as described. Top each glass with whipped cream if desired (03/11/2007)

Frozen Coffee Drink Recipes (Like Starbucks)

I make this one all the time, it doesn't taste exactly like Starbucks, but personally, I think it's way better.

It's on the back of a Nestle hot chocolate packet. They have a lot of different recipes on the back of each packet in a box and I've tried a few, but this one's my favorite.

Frozen Mocha

(makes 1 serving; about the amount of 1 coffee cup)

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup ice cubes *I use 5 and it works great
  • 1/2 cup vanilla frozen yogurt, or ice cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 envelope of any brand hot cocoa mix *I use Nestle
  • 1/2 teaspoon Instant coffee granules *I use General Foods International French Vanilla
  • Fat Free whipped topping (optional)

Directions:

Place ice, frozen yogurt (or ice cream), milk, cocoa mix, and coffee granules in blender; cover. Blend until smooth. Top with whipped topping. Serve Immediately.

Like I said earlier, I got this recipe from Nestle.
I love it. (11/17/2007)

Frozen Coffee Drink Recipes (Like Starbucks)

Starbucks has something they call a "Frappuccino" remember this is a registered name so what I make is simply "My Frozen Coffee" This recipe for a drink costs me about $0.38 for a 40 oz blender full. A bit of a difference when 16 oz at Starbucks set me back $4.50 plus the expected tip and I don't have a clue what the heck was in that foil box that came out from under the cabinet. So here is my own tried and true recipe.

The measurements are to taste that you prefer over time there is no order to the mixture:

  1. from my ice dispenser 1 20 oz travel cup of ice. Just dump it in your Kitchen-aid counter top blender.
  2. About 8 oz plain or vanilla yogurt. I buy it in a 32 oz carton.
  3. 2 or 3 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  4. A good hard squeeze of honey from one of those bear shaped plastic thingys with the pop top.
  5. 1 or 2 packets of water soluble cocoa or an equivalent for a box of powder.
  6. 1 or 2 scoops of instant coffee crystals
  7. Just enough milk to make the blender take up the challenge and mix it well when you turn the thing on Liquify.

There is no secret to the mixture in what to add first. If you want some protein add a whole egg. If you want ice cream use less milk. If you want a zip and a zing add a shot of Caffee Lolita Coffee Liqueur. If you are diabetic well you know what to do in that case.
Enjoy the fun. (11/03/2008)

Frappuccino Recipes

I buy the flavoured instant cappuchino mixes to make them at home. Instead of mixing them with hot water I dissolve the powder in a little hot water (a couple of tablespoons, it won't mix well directly into milk) and then fill up the rest of the cup with milk. The mixes come in different flavours, but you can add vanilla extract or chocolate syrup to get the flavour you want.
You can also put it in the blender with some ice to make it more frosty. (07/07/2006)

Copycat Starbuck's Frappuccino (4 servings)

Combine coffee and sugar and chill. Add milk and pectin, shake together thoroughly and chill again. To serve, zap in a blender for 30 to 45 seconds, or shake mixture in ice, strain and serve. For vanilla add a capful of vanilla extract; for mocha, add a pinch of cocoa powder.

Make double-strength coffee by brewing with twice the coffee required by your coffee maker approximately 2 tablespoons of ground coffee per each cup of coffee. Chill before using.

Like Starbuck's Frozen Frappuccino (2 large servings)

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend on high speed until ice is crushed and drink is smooth. Pour into two 16-ounce glasses, and serve with a straw.

For caramel, add 3 tablespoons of caramel topping; for mocha add 3 tablespoons of Hershey's syrup. If desired, top with whipped cream and drizzle additional sauce over top of cream.

Put 1 cup of skimmed milk (in a plastic cup) in the freezer till it is chilled as you will be able to see the milk forming flakes. Its better than adding ice to the blender as you add the rest of the ingredients and it is rich and creamy with no added ice.
Add:

Mix all in the blender till its smooth and creamy, top it with additional creamy foam spray and caramel. Wow.
