Introduction: Oreo Frappuccino Recipe (Cookies and Cream Frappuccino)
The Oreo Frappuccino has never been a Starbucks official flavor, but it is one you'll find if you search the internet, so I decided to give that a try. The Starbucks Secret Menu does have two ways they suggest you order it at Starbucks, so like with the Red Velvet Cake Frappuccino, I decided to mash them up and make it the way that sounded tastiest to me.
I will be honest and say I only like Oreos. I don't think they are amazing or anything, but I am super, super happy with how this frappuccino turned out. So if you love Oreos, or even only like them, this is definitely worth trying. Though, you do need to like chocolate to like this.
Step 1: Supplies
This recipe is a single serving and makes about the equivalent of a 16oz Grande from Starbucks.
- 2c ice
- 1/4c strong coffee - this Trader Joes cold brew coffee is my go to, but feel free to just brew up some coffee
- 1/2c whipping cream - or you can use milk or Half & Half, but I think it is the whipping cream that really made this drink tasty
- 2 tbsp chocolate sauce - Torani's Chocolate Milano Syrup is also an option
- 2 tbsp White Chocolate Torani
- 2 tbsp simple syrup (or 3 tbsp of sugar, but simple syrup blends in better)
- 3 Oreos mashed up (you can use 2 or 4 or however many you feel like) - or imitation Oreos, it's your call
- Whipped topping
- More chocolate sauce and crushed Oreos for topping
- Pinch of Xantham Gum (optional)
Replace 1/4c coffee with whipping cream/milk/or whatever you are using
Use 4 tbsp of chocolate sauce and just leave out the white chocolate syrup, but I think it tastes pretty good with the white chocolate. Or you can use white chocolate sauce instead of the syrup.
- Blender - I use a Magic Bullet at home, it's great for making individual drinks though doesn't blend quite as well as the Vitamix
- Ice cube trays - small ice cubes make for even easier blending
- Measuring cups and spoons
- Cups for serving
- Reusable straws / Birch pattern paper straws
*The amounts are just a suggestion. Change it up to suit your tastes; for example, I don't use a lot of coffee, but when I make one for my husband I usually put in more coffee and then decrease the amount of milk.
Step 2: Mix It
Mix it all up.
The dustiness on top of the cookie crumbles is the xantham gum.
If you want to just throw the cookies in whole you can, I just wasn't sure I could trust the blender and I really wanted to make sure they were mashed beforehand. It wasn't hard. I just stuck them in a ziplock and banged on them with a bottle. A rolling pin would work well too.
Step 3: Top It and Enjoy
Really, the whipped topping, chocolate sauce, and cookie crumbs are the best on top of this drink.
