Ingredients for Copycat Starbucks Strawberry Frappuccino

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.

Whipped CreamThis drink is topped off with whipped cream, or cool whip. Make your own homemade whipped cream to use.

  1. Looks yummy. I have a question about the strawberry syrup. Is it the kind you put in coffee drinks? Thank you.

    1. Hi, Susan! I work with iambaker and am happy to help with questions. We used Hershey’s Strawberry syrup in this recipe. I hope that helps, and have a great day!

  2. Decent recipe, but it’s lacking something that makes it as good as Starbucks. Maybe needs some more sweetener or strawberry flavor, either more berries or more syrup.
