Easily make a Pumpkin Spice flavored Frappuccino at home! No need to wait for the season to come around at Starbucks. This frappe does not have pumpkin in it; if you want real pumpkin in your drink, try out this recipe I made a few years ago.
Step 1: Supplies
This recipe is a single serving and makes about 16oz (Grande size from Starbucks).
- 2c Ice
- 1/2c Whole Milk
- 1/4c Coffee
- 3 or 4 Tbsp Pumpkin Spice Syrup
- 3 Tbsp Simple syrup
- Pumpkin Pie Spice - for sprinkling on top, it adds a nice aroma when you take a sip - you can also make your own pumpkin pie spice or just use cinnamon
- Pinch of Xantham Gum (optional)
- Whipped topping
Optionally, you can add 1/2 - 1Tbsp of Cinnamon Syrup. Just for a little something different. This syrup is very strong, don't use more than 1Tbsp.
Step 2: Blend and Add Topping
Throw all of your ingredients in the blender and blend until the ice is completely crushed.
If you use more coffee, go with a little more of the syrup. If you use less coffee, stick with 3 tablespoons. It seems like this flavoring is kind of subtle so the coffee can overpower it.
Assemble it any way you want, but I went simply with whipped topping and a dusting of pumpkin pie spice.
