This homemade frappuccino recipe might surprise some of you, especially since I recently admitted how much I dislike coffee. I still dislike coffee, however I have many family and friends that love it.
In general my husband does not like coffee, he made it through all his years of college and studying without the help of coffee. He does not dislike it as much as I do, but it is not something he drinks regularly.
However, he does like to occasionally have a Starbucks Frappuccino. I try to keep the bottles that you can buy on hand and he drinks about one of them a week. They are expensive, and not something he needs often, but he enjoys them so they make a nice treat to have occasionally.
We recently had a church picnic at our house and I wanted to serve something a little different since it was summertime. I know that not everyone hates coffee as much as I do, so I decided that an iced coffee or homemade frappuccino might work well.
I love to make homemade versions of our favorite things, so why not make a homemade version of a frappuccino? I really wanted this to be close to the real thing, and from what I was told it was.
My husband loved this and it was gone in no time at the picnic. I had two people ask me for the recipe. One person said it was better than the Starbucks version, and one said it tasted just like the real thing.
This will make a great recipe when I have people over during the summer months. It is so easy and everyone loves it.
