If you want to get as close as possible to the original Starbucks Vanilla Bean Frappuccino, we have found a recipe that will get you extremely close to the real thing. This recipe is made for one, but you can always double, triple or quadruple the ingredients when need be.
Start by adding 1½ healthy scoops of vanilla bean ice cream to your blender. We suggest going with vanilla bean versus golden vanilla or other variations. This will get you closest to the taste you are used to.
Next, add 1½ cups of milk to the ice cream. You can make it a caffeinated frappuccino by using cold coffee instead.
Give that a quick blend on low.
Remove the cap and add 5 to 6 ice cubes, and blend it starting on low and working up to high for about a minute. It can help to stop halfway through and scrape from the sides.
When you are done mixing, pour into a tall glass. Add whipped cream to the top and enjoy!
