The Starbucks Vanilla Bean Frappuccino is perfect for summer. With summer in full swing, it’s nice to be able to enjoy a refreshing treat on a hot day!
Have your ice cream and drink it too! That’s how I feel about the vanilla bean frappuccino from Starbucks. It’s a delicious cream based drink that is like melted ice cream heaven in a cup. It’s one of their most favorite frappuccinos even though it doesn’t have any coffee in it! If you are heading to Starbucks with your kiddos and they need something to cool them down, the vanilla bean frappuccino is the answer!
Starbucks offers a complete line of blended cream based frappuccinos for its patrons to enjoy. They range from coffee based favorites like the chocolatey mocha frappuccino to the extreme non-coffee drinks like the s’mores frappuccino and the new caramel waffle cone. The vanilla bean falls into the mild range of blended cream drinks but is still wildly popular.
One of the great things about the vanilla bean frappuccino is that is oh so easy to make at home! All you need is a few ingredients, and you are ready to be sipping pretty. The key to this drink is made sure it is extra vanilla-y. You start with vanilla bean ice cream, some milk, and ice and add a few drops of vanilla extract. The extract gives it that oh so creamy and delicious vanilla flavor that we all love. Also, feel free to add whipped cream on top! I enjoyed mine without, but it’s extra yummy with a dollop or two!
