Strawberry Frappuccino Ingredients
Strawberries: It all starts with fresh strawberries for this recipe. To prepare the strawberries, be sure to wash them thoroughly and gently pat them dry. After you have washed the strawberries, remove the leafy green parts of the berries.
This is called ‘hulling’ the strawberries. Instead of simply cutting off the tops straight across, insert a sharp knife at an angle and rotate the strawberry in a circle until the stem pulls out. If using frozen strawberries, let them thaw in a colander and pat them dry before pureeing.
Milk: Whole milk will give you the creamiest drink; but, you could definitely use any milk you have on hand. For a drink with fewer calories, use skim milk or 1% milk.
How to Make Copycat Starbucks Strawberry Frappuccino
To make this refreshing drink, first, add the hulled strawberries, sugar, and water to a blender. Blend until smooth to make the puree. Reserve 2-3 tablespoons of the strawberry puree to use for the topping. After the puree has been made, add milk, ice, ice cream, and strawberry syrup to the blender with the strawberry puree. Again, blend until smooth.
Finally, pour the drink into a tall glass. Top with whipped cream (cool whip) and the reserved strawberry puree. Sip away!
