A refreshing frappe that is creamy and perfect for summer. Made with real vanilla beans and cream.

I love getting the frozen drinks at Starbucks and the Vanilla Bean Frappuccino is one of my favorites. It tastes like a vanilla ice cream smoothie. They are very expensive at Starbucks, but they are very easy to make at home. Using only 4 ingredients (one being ice), this recipe is a snap to make and you will be amazed at how close this copycat recipe is to the Starbucks iced vanilla bean frappe. This frappe does not have coffee so it is caffeine free.

These vanilla frappes are perfect for those hot summer days when you want something cool and refreshing. I love the creamy flavour with the taste of real vanilla bean.

I try to always have vanilla beans on hand. The taste is so much better than artificial vanilla. Here are some other ways that I use real vanilla beans.
