Snowball Frappuccino Recipe




Introduction: Snowball Frappuccino Recipe

About: I am powered by sugar and rainbows! For realz!

The Snowball Frappuccino is from This drink was introduced through Starbucks UK social media and other people wanted to try it too. The original recipe requires almond syrup and you can get that from Torani, but I decided to imitate their imitation recipe. This frappuccinio is a nice white chocolatey drink with a hint of hazelnut. Feel free to change proportions till it's perfect for you!

Step 1: Supplies

This recipe is a single serving and makes about the 16oz Grande size from Starbucks.


Caffeinated Version:

Replace 1/4c of the milk with Strong Coffee

Topping Suggestions:


  • Blender - I use a Magic Bullet at home, it's great for making individual drinks
  • Ice cube trays - small ice cubes make for even easier blending
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Cups for serving
  • Reusable Straws

Step 2: Blend

Blend it all up and top it the way you want. I wasn't sure for this one. I think white chocolate sauce could be good, I just didn't have any on hand.

Step 3: Enjoy

    I'll try it with the almond, as I'm not fond of hazlenuts. I, too agree about the KitchenAid immersion blender. Mine has 9 speeds and is very powerful, and I got all the attachments for it at the same time. (The whisk is incredible!) I have the updated Nutribullet - a much more powerful version of the Magic Bullet, and I grind my own spices with it and anything else that's too hard for a blender. I got mine with the cups that have handles, so I can blend and drink from the same cup; a nice bonus! More powerful tools are so, SO worth the extra money, and are less expensive in the long run because they LAST and you aren't replacing them over and over.

    Very true! I hate spending more money, but more often than not it is worth it :) Let me know how you like it with almond!

    I use a Kitchen Aid immersion blender. I had cheaper ones before, but they were too flimsy for everyday use.

    How well does it work? I would love to know. I have one of those, but I'm sure mine is too flimsy too :P

    I bought a Magic Bullet, and returned it almost immediately, because of a poorly designed switch. I had two HB immersion blenders, that broke within a year. Generics were noisy and under-powered.

    :( I actually use a Magic Bullet at home. It certainly isn't as good as the expensive Vitamix I get to use at work, but it does the job on my lazy weekend mornings :)
