Starbucks Frappuccino OR Wendy’s Frosty “Knock-Offs”

This is my second time trying to re-create this recipe. The first time was over a year ago, but this time I learned some helpful tips. I will be sharing two recipes below.

(I made a You Tube Video showing the feedback from my taste-testers. See link to the video below.)

The recipe ingredients are simple. No matter which you try…you are sure to enjoy this treat…regardless of whether you think it tastes like either of these “knock-off” recipe attempts.

– Recipe No. 1 – 

I think this recipe is more similar to the Starbucks Frappuccino recipe that I was originally aiming for. Here is the original photo and it’s caption that I posted to Instagram.

Ingredients:

  • 3 ounces of nut milk (I used almond milk)
  • 3 pitted dates
  • 3 frozen cubes of coconut cream
  • 6 frozen cubes of coconut milk (or frozen almond milk)
  • 3 ice cubes
  • 1 heaping teaspoon of instant coffee
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Add nut milk and pitted dates to a blender and blend well.
  2. Depending on your blender, you might want to remove date bits. (But, actually they aren’t very noticeable if the end result if very icy. They just add additional sweet bits to chew on.)
  3. Add frozen cubes of coconut cream, frozen milk, ice cubes, vanilla extract and coffee, blend until just icy.
  4. Serve.

Frozen Ice Cube Tray Date Bits (Remove or Not)

– Recipe No. 2 – 

This is the recipe in the video that my daughter says tastes more like a Wendy’s Frosty – even though it doesn’t use any chocolate. (That’s another recipe post to come later.)

Ingredients:

  • 6 ounces of  coffee (6 ounces of cold water and 1 heaping teaspoon of instant coffee)
  • 3 pitted dates
  • 3 frozen cubes of coconut cream
  • 3 frozen cubes of coconut milk (or frozen almond milk)

Directions:

  1. Add coffee and pitted dates to a blender and blend well.
  2. Depending on your blender, you might want to remove date bits. (But, actually they aren’t very noticeable if the end result if very icy. They just add additional sweet bits to chew on.)
  3. Add frozen cubes of coconut cream, frozen milk  and coffee, blend until just icy.
  4. Serve.
