Copycat Starbucks Strawberry & Creme Frappuccino
1 cup of ice (about 8-10 average sized ice cubes)
½ cup milk (use any type of milk that you like)
½ cup vanilla ice cream
3 tablespoon strawberry syrup
3 strawberries hulled *
*If you’re not a whiz in the kitchen, before you go and Google what it means to ‘hull a strawberry’, get a small paring knife and remove the leaves, stem and the tiny core below the stem.
Step 1: Combine ingredients in your blender
Combine your ice, ½ cup milk and ½ cup of vanilla ice cream in your blender and blend on low for about 15 seconds (just long enough to break up the ice a little bit).
Step 2: Add strawberries
Add your hulled strawberries and 2 tablespoons of the strawberry syrup to your mixture. Pulse and blend until thoroughly blended (usually about 30 seconds).
Step 3: Pour and enjoy!
Pour into a cold cup and top with whipped cream and drizzle with strawberry sauce (optional). Drink up and enjoy!
