I am a sucker for this homemade strawberries and cream frappuccino. Made with real berries and topped with a giant dollop of whipped cream, it doesn’t get much better! It tastes similar to a strawberry milkshake with a slightly thinner consistency. Still incredibly delicious and perfect to help cool down on a hot summer day.

What is in Starbucks Strawberry Frappuccino?

To make this recipe you will need four simple ingredients. Blend them all together and top with whipped cream. The last part is optional, but well worth it!

  • Ice Cream- We love to use Tillamook’s vanilla bean ice cream. It adds a vanilla filled creamy texture that is out of this world delicious.
  • Milk- Ideally, you want to use whole milk. However, 2% will work in a pinch.
  • Vanilla Extract- Always opt for pure vanilla extract over imitation.
  • Strawberries- See note below.

Best Strawberries for this Recipe

For this recipe, we found that using frozen strawberries in syrup, that have been partially thawed, will deliver a bold berry flavor.

That being said, you can definitely use fresh berries or frozen NOT in syrup. Substitute 8-10 medium sized berries that have been roughly chopped in place of the frozen.

Optional Ingredients

One of the best parts about this recipe is how easy it is to customize. It is extremely versatile. If you want a less milkshake creamy texture- add ice. Want to really indulge? Top with whipped cream and strawberry sauce!

Recipe Tips and FAQs

  • Want to add ice but don’t want to take away the creamy texture? Try freezing milk in your ice cube trays.
  • For a vegan version simply substitute vegan coconut ice cream, coconut milk and homemade coconut whipped cream. I actually suggest trying this even if you are NOT vegan. It is dreamy!
  • Want an extra punch of strawberry? The secret is using ripe flavorful berries. You can also add a spoonful or two of strawberry sauce.

Does the Strawberry Frappuccino Have Coffee in it?

No. This recipe does not contain coffee or caffeine. The original Starbucks version is caffeine free as well. According to their website their recipe contains ice, milk and strawberry puree layered on top of a splash of strawberry puree and finished with vanilla whipped cream.
