Skinny Copycat Starbucks Strawberry Frappuccino




It's  "skinny" because I left out the ice cream and subbed Strawberry Greek Yogurt. 

Saw the recipe on Simplee Thrifty and adapted it. I did a search on the web to see if anyone had made it with Greek Yogurt and didn't see a recipe. The yogurt was my idea and if this recipe was made before the day I posted please  send me your link so I can source it.

It was delicious!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup Almond Milk ( recipe used regular milk)
1 5.3 ounces container Strawberry Greek Yogurt
1 cup ice
2-4 strawberries -depending on size.


Directions:

Add all of the above ingredients to the  blender and blend until ice is crushed.

Give it a good stir to make sure there aren't large chunks of ice. If there are, blend again.

Pour into glass and if you want, add some whipped cream.

I treated myself to cold tea in Starbucks and saved the glass. You never know when you might need it for a photo shoot!

  6. Definitely something I will be making though with regular 1% milk. Always have the ingredients on hand as I have frozen berries. Likely fresh would be better but frozen will do in a pinch! Thanks, Linda!
