  • There’s no coffee or caffeine in this drink, like the Strawberry Frappuccino and the Vanilla Bean Frappuccino.
  • Every Starbucks Frappuccino is made with a Frappuccino base syrup that turns an icy drink into a smooth, creamy one. This recipe uses a homemade Frappuccino base syrup that can easily be made in your kitchen.
  • This Starbucks copycat recipe recreates the Starbucks White Chocolate Crème Frappuccino using six ingredients, including the homemade Frappuccino base syrup, and makes a grande size (16 ounces) drink.

Ingredient Notes

Starbucks White Chocolate Frappuccino copycat recipe ingredients.
  • Homemade Frappuccino base syrup
    To recreate Starbucks Frappuccinos, the Frappuccino base syrup is a must. It’s made with sugar, water, and xanthan gum, which is a thickener. Make a batch of this first.
  • White chocolate sauce
    This is to flavor the Frappuccino with white chocolate flavor.
  • Milk
    Starbucks makes their Frappuccinos with whole milk, but you can use any milk you like. Whole milk will make your frozen drink creamier though.
  • Heavy cream
    This is to make the whipped cream topping.
  • Vanilla syrup
    To flavor and sweeten the whipped cream, vanilla syrup is used instead of sugar. Starbucks uses vanilla syrup in their whipped cream.
  • Ice
    If possible, make ice using filtered water.

I love this brand for sauces for drinks. No high fructose corn syrups, unlike other sauces.

Expert Tips

  • Don’t add ice into the blender first since you won’t get an efficient blend. Add ingredients into the blender in the same order it’s listed on the recipe.
  • You don’t have to use the homemade Frappuccino base syrup to make this drink, but not including it will make your drink icy and not creamy. Replace the Frappuccino base syrup with the same amount of simple syrup to sweeten.
  • Use a handheld milk frother to make homemade whipped cream quickly and easily. It should take about 30 seconds to get whipped cream with soft peaks. The longer you whisk, the thicker the whipped cream will get.
  • The drink is made with vanilla whipped cream but if you want to make white chocolate whipped cream, just replace the vanilla syrup with white chocolate sauce and add that to the heavy cream.

NOTES

  • Don’t add ice into the blender first since you won’t get an efficient blend. Add ingredients into the blender in the same order it’s listed on the recipe.
  • The secret to making Frappuccinos just like Starbucks is the Frappuccino base syrup. Make a batch first and keep it in the fridge to use whenever you want to make Frappuccinos.
