The Cotton Candy Frappuccino from Starbucks is my daughter’s favorite frapp! We don’t live that close to a Starbucks so she wanted to be able to make this favorite at home. This recipe is so easy that even a nine year old can make it. (With adult supervision, of course!)
Technically, the Cotton Candy Frappuccino isn’t on the actual Starbucks menu. It’s on the “secret” menu. To enjoy at Starbucks you order a Vanilla Frappuccino with a pump of a raspberry syrup.
All you need is ice, milk, ice cream, raspberry and vanilla syrup. You should be able to find raspberry Torani syrup at most grocery stores and definitely at World Market or places like that. I usually buy my syrups from Amazon. It is worth it to invest in a couple of the syrup pumps to make it easier to use. If you have one of these, simply add two pumps of each syrup to your recipe instead of measuring out with a tablespoon.
Blend all together in a blender until smooth. We use our Ninja Kitchen Prep for all our blending needs. We have had ours for several years now and it’s one of our go-to kitchen gadgets. While we loved this version, we recently upgraded to the Ninja Kitchen System, which includes smoothie cups that are perfect for making smoothies and fraps!
Top with whipped cream if you desire and garnish with a raspberry or strawberry. Delish!
My daughter made these for all the kids who were at our house today and they all loved them!
