Cotton Candy Frappuccino {Starbucks Secret Menu}


Did you know that there are hundreds of drinks at Starbucks that are not listed on the menu?  It would take me forever and a day to go through each and every one of the items on the Starbucks Secret menu so today, we’re going to start with one of their more popular items, the cotton candy frappuccino.  To be more specific, this is derivative of their blended creme frappuccino meaning that it’s a cream base with no espresso, obliterating the need for a special espresso pot or machine.  However if that’s your thing, I have a video for a coffee based pumpkin spice frappuccino and mocha frappuccino as well!

This cotton candy frappuccino is perfect for those who want a fruity and creamy concoction that’s part milkshake, part frappuccino and all indulgence.  It’s thick and creamy, rich and fruity and tantalizes the tastebuds with tart raspberries {specifically homemade jam} softened by the luscious flavor and texture of ice cream and milk.  It’s a cool dreamy treat that’s fun and pink with flavors reminiscent of cotton candy.  The short list of ingredients are easily accessible making it a perfect homemade Starbucks frappuccino to begin with.  There’s no special technique or crazy ingredients involved and if you can run a blender, you can make this frappuccino at home very easily.  Not to mention, it’s much lighter on your wallet to make this yourself and after you make it once, you’ll see how quick and easy it is and how it multiplies beautifully for a group of friends to each enjoy one as well for the price you’d pay for just one at Starbucks.  It would take you longer to drive there and wait in line so if you’re a fan of Starbucks frappuccino blended cremes, I promise you won’t regret making this at home for yourself.
