This Genius Starbucks Frappuccino Hack Can Actually Save You Money!
Here’s how you can actually freeze the Starbucks Frappuccino bottles to mimic the frozen blended beverage!
Thanks to Delish.com and innovative TikTok-ers, we all just realized we’ve been drinking these popular Starbucks Frappuccino bottled drinks the totally wrong way.
In fact, if you freeze them for just a few hours, give them a good shake, and open it up, you’ll discover a perfectly icy cold Frappuccino drink! 😍 In all fairness, the hack results in a frozen beverage that is a little bit icier than your traditional blended frappuccino you’d get at the cafe, but you just can’t beat the savings!
At Starbucks, a tall (12 oz.) blended frappuccino will run you $4.25, whereas the frappuccino bottle (13.7 oz.) at Walmart is only $2.68. That’s almost 40% in savings AND you’re getting more drink from the bottled version!
Here’s how to make an easy Starbuck’s Frappuccino at home:
Step 1: Shake up the bottled frappuccino.
Giving the bottle a good shake can help ensure even freezing while it chills in the freezer.
Step 2: Place the bottle in the freezer for 2 hours.
Store the bottle upright in your freezer for 2 hours. This is based on the bottle already chilled from the fridge so you may want to add an extra 20-30 min to freeze if yours is room temp.
Step 3: After 2 hours, remove the bottle from the freezer and shake vigorously.
Now it’s time to give the frappuccino a good shake. It will likely feel like it is already frozen solid, but after some vigorous shakes, the frozen portion will loosen and kind of blend in the bottle. Keep shaking for about 30 seconds or until the contents are moving around freely in the bottle.
Step 4: Place back in the freezer for 1 more hour.
This is the final freeze to make sure your frappuccino is nice and blended, so keep it in the freezer for one hour to completely chill through.
Step 5: Remove from the freezer and give the bottle another good shaking.
Take out the bottle from the freezer and give it another vigorous shake until you start to see the frozen blended consistency reappear.
Step 6: Open the bottle, pour into a glass, and enjoy!
After 3 hours, it’s finally time to enjoy your frozen frappuccino! Serve out of a glass, reusable Starbucks cup, or drink straight from the bottle. If you do skip the glass, I recommend using a butter knife to mix around the frappuccino inside the bottle for better consistency throughout.
It really doesn’t get any easier than that, friends! Top with whipped cream or your favorite syrup drizzle. Then grab a cute pool float and head for the pool to relax and sip on the easiest Starbucks drink hack ever.
