Seriously Strawberry Frappuccino - Dairy Free Way

Since it's been a hot minute I've tried making Starbucks drinks at home, I figured I should do it now and maybe blog the experience in case anyone out there wants to try this out too. In Finland the weather has been super hot so I was not in the mood for hot drinks - or even coffee - today, and therefore decided to recreate a strawberry frappuccino. In a dairy-free way, in case my plant-based and vegan friends want to make some too.
   Seriously Strawberry Frappuccino


I did some googling a while back in case I was inspired enough to try out some recipes, and one of the new drinks I found via Starbucks site was Seriously Strawberry Frappuccino. I love strawberries, and frappuccinos, so this was definitely on my list of drinks to try. And, Elite Daily had told that it wouldn't be too difficult to create at home. Of course what I made is not an exact replica of the Starbucks treat, but what I made was easy and somewhat healthy version to make at home.

You need:
Strawberries
Plant milk
Ice
Plant cream
Strawberry puree
(Sugar/sweetener)

And that's it. Sounds like a little but trust me, it works. The amounts I mention are for two portions.

dairy free milk and cream

Like I said, this version is dairy-free, but of course you could use any milks and creams you prefer. However I've been enjoying how dairy-free options make me feel, so plant-based recipe it is.

whipped soy cream

I started out by whisking the soy cream into whipped form, and put it in the fridge for the time I was making all the rest.

Next, I took some strawberries (around one coffee cup's worth, 2 decilitres) from the freezer, and defrosted them a bit in the microwave. Then, I blended them into a puree with some sugar.

After making the puree, I added 4 decilitres (under 2 cups) of oat milk, little bit sugar and around 2 decilitres of frozen strawberries into my blender, and blended smooth with the ice crush mode. You could also do this with pure ice and fresh berries for more frappuccino-like texture. I just didn't have ice but had frozen berries, so this was way easier for me today.

Dairy-free Frappuccino

Assemble the drinks by adding berry puree at the bottom of the glass, then add the frappuccino part, and then add another layer of puree. Top with whipped cream. 

Doesn't get much easier than that, right?

Vegan Strawberry Frappuccino

Then you have this tasty, cute colored drink and you can enjoy it on a warm summer day. This was really good and even my dairy-loving boyfriend loved this. So even if you enjoy dairy products, I highly recommend testing this with dairy-free products.

What has been your favorite summer drink this year? Let me know in the comments!

That's all for today's quick post, but I'll be back soon with another one. I'm hoping I get to shoot some outfit pics this weekend, but we'll see how the weather develops. However, I will be sharing my outfits daily on Instagram - as well as other things so follow me there (@silvertigo) if you haven't done so already. I also remind you there about the new blog posts so it's the best place to keep up. I'll see you all in the next post!

Have a lovely day ♥
