This copycat is dead on and just as lovely as the real deal. You can't go wrong with strawberries and cream!
Y'all know I am no stranger to copycat recipes. I am obsessed with them. I love finding recipes for my favorites and I love to come up with recipes for my favorites. This go-around I happened to find a recipe for my old favorite at Starbucks: Strawberries and Creme Frappuccino! I had my first Starbucks drink in Fort Gordon, Georgia when Nick was stationed there for AIT. The on-base hospital had a Starbucks in the lobby and every time Matthew (my oldest) had a doctor's appointment, I would get this drink with a chocolate chunk cookie. So it's definitely a nostalgic drink.
I have previously tried a different recipe for it, but it was nothing like the real thing and quite undrinkable, if you ask me. So I waited patiently until another recipe fell into my lap and this one is definitely a keeper. It tastes just like the real thing. It is wonderfully easy to make too. Honestly, the "hardest" part is hulling the strawberries and even that isn't too bad. This recipe does make one drink, so if you don't want to share, be sure to double, triple, quadruple, or more the recipe :)
What you need:
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 vanilla ice cream
- 1 cup ice
- 2 strawberries, hulled
- 2 Tbsp. strawberry syrup
- Whipped cream
- Place all ingredients except whipped cream into a blender and blend until smooth.
- Pour into a glass and serve topped with whipped cream.
