Frappuccino Addiction Made Cheaper!

Frappuccino Addiction Made Cheaper!

I’m willing to make a confession…I have an addiction.  I can’t make it all week without getting a delicious Vanilla Starbucks frappuccino.  The tasty smooth coffee drink that isn’t really a coffee drink can make a bad day better or a good day stellar!

I’ve been doing my best to save money and figuring out how to make a homemade version of this makes me feel like I’ve saved my wallet.


8 cups of Brewed Coffee
(I used Folgers Classic Roast.  8 cups=$.37)

1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
(I’m trying to save some calories so I used the fat free Eagle Brand.  14oz can=$2.58)

1 Tbsp Vanilla
(Mexican vanilla is my favorite.  1 Tbsp=$.12)


It really is as easy as three ingredients!  Mix everything together while the coffee is still hot.  Place it in the fridge the day before you’d like to serve it.  Enjoy!!
