Hi Bold Bakers!
Strawberries and Cream go together like Peanut Butter and Jelly. A classic pairing of two flavors that are both Bold and delicate. You can’t beat it. So it makes perfect sense the combo would work so well in a blended drink. Starbucks saw that and created an empire on crafting delicious blended drinks that I’m going to show you how you can make yourself at home. Sorry Starbucks.
I love a good Starbucks Frappuccino and it turns out I’m not alone. Starbucks Strawberries and Cream Frappuccino is actually one of their most popular drinks!!! Out of all the drinks they make this is the most popular. You don’t have to convince me, I’m sold.
Fun factoid, Frappuccinos are 20% of Starbucks total coffee sales. What does that number look like in $$$? In 2011 it was $2 billion. My facts are a bit old, but it just means that today in 2017 it is a lot more. Bet you wish you bought Starbucks stock in the 90’s now…
In my humble opinion, my Frappuccinos taste just like the real thing but without the pumps of syrups and artificial flavors. By no means am I bashing the coffee giant as I have paid for and enjoyed them myself but now we can make our own all natural versions here so we can enjoy more and pay for it less. Our waist lines that is, not to mention our wallets.
Like a lot of my recipes these are customizable to suit you. If you don’t like strawberries, use raspberries. If you don’t eat dairy use dairy-free milk like almond or soy. There really aren’t any strict rules you have to follow when it comes to these drinks. And on that note, come up with your own flavors, nothing is written in stone, get creative.
