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.

    If you want to make this with coffee, how much and where do you add it in the recipe?

    • Amanda Rettke says:

      I would start pretty small… a tablespoon or 2. It can overpower the strawberry pretty quickly.

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

    • Elizabeth Keeney says:

      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!
