Healthy Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino Copycat Recipe

The frozen coffee drink is a costly concoction.

A venti Starbucks Frappuccino will run you about $4 in most parts of the country. Drink one four times a week, as many people do, and you’re out nearly $1,000 a year. For coffee. But the cost doesn’t stop there. At 500 calories a pop, that same Frappuccino addiction will fix an extra 29 pounds on your frame over the course of 365 days. Are you really prepared to pay that steep of a price?

What You Need

How to Make It

Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and uniform.

Mix It Up

Three ways to amp up the flavor:

Chocolate: Replace the caramel with a tablespoon of chocolate sauce (the darker the better) and a pinch of cinnamon.

Banana: Drop a frozen banana into the blender. Continue with the recipe.

Booze: Add a shot of Kahlua or Bailey’s to any of the versions above.
