Have you tried making speciality coffee drinks at home? Save time and money by making your own copycat frappuccino at home! You only need 3 ingredients, and you probably have them in the house already!
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my Starbucks picture a few weeks ago. I’ve been a Starbucks Gold Card member since 2008! But this year, I’ve scaled down my Starbucks visits to an occasional special treat in order to save money.
Because of this, I didn’t reach the 30 “stars” needed to stay a Gold Card member, and I was demoted to “Green Level.” Sad day!
The good news is, I’ve been learning how to make some of my favorite drinks at home! I often make too much coffee in morning, and so I save it in bottles in the refrigerator. Somedays I get home from work and need a little pick-me-up, so I mix up an ice coffee or a frappuccino.
My personal blender is one of my favorite kitchen gadgets! I use it all the time to make smoothies, but it works great for blending up a frappuccino, too. I love how I can just throw the cup in the dishwasher once I’m done. No need to clean a big blender!
French Vanilla is my favorite flavor of coffee creamer, but if it doesn’t float your boat, you can use any flavor you like!
- 3 tablespoons french vanilla creamer
- 8 ounces cold coffee (I just refrigerate my leftover coffee in the morning)
- 1 cup ice
- 1. Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend well.
- 2. If your frappuccino is too thick, add more coffee or creamer. If it isn't thick enough, add ice.

What was your all-time favorite post on your blog? Why? Picking a favorite anything has never been my strong point, but if you’re going to make me choose just one I’d have to say it’s probably my Sizzling Texas Fajitas. I just love the photos in that post, and every time I eat them I’m transported back to my childhood in Austin, Texas. I have so many great memories of begging my dad to split the fajitas for two with me when we went to dinner. (He always graciously let me eat almost all the sour cream and cheese that came on the side!)
What is one thing you are looking forward to in 2015?I’m looking forward to growing as a blogger and a food photographer. I have recently had a couple local businesses approach me to do photos for their marketing and menus and a few culinary school students approached me about photography lessons. It’s really neat to see all the possibilities that are opening up, and I’m trying to be discerning in what I do say yes to.
