Chai Frappuccino

{Starbucks Copycat}

Can you tell I planned my blog menu waaay too far in advance? I had no idea this winter would be so cold when I decided to make this Chai Frappuccino, but I decided to forge ahead anyway. Mainly because I had most everything on hand, and I just plain need to save a few bucks this year. Never mind that it is going to get in the 40s for the next few nights here in “sub-tropical” South Florida. I don’t know how those in colder climates are handling it! But here is a delicious drink in case you can’t quite get that heat setting quite right and it’s just a touch too warm inside right now. Or if you are just dreaming of a warm summer day like I am đŸ™‚

A copycat recipe of a Starbucks chai Frappuccino made with just a few simple ingredients! So easy and delicious!

The Ingredients

As I mentioned, I had all of the ingredients for this Chai Frappuccino on hand, and that doesn’t happen very often. Ice and water are a given, but I happened to have extra whipped cream from the Pumpkin French Toast Casserole I posted last week. I also keep cinnamon on hand at all times as well as a selection of teas including chai.

Chai tea bags, vanilla ice cream, ice, whipped cream, cinnamon, and water

The Process

This frappuccino was so simple to make, and the recipe breaks down into two main parts: brewing the tea and blending the drink. Mine took just a bit more than the 25 minutes listed. Here’s how my time was spent:

  • 12 minutes to heat make the tea
  • 15 minutes to cool the tea
  • 4 minutes to make the frappuccino
  • 31 minutes total

I kicked things off by brewing the tea and decided to skip the stove and boiled the water in my microwave. I was sure to watch, and 90 seconds had it at a rolling boil. Then I poured the water over the tea bags and let them brew for 10 minutes. Afterward, I removed the tea bags and placed the chai tea into my refrigerator. Tip: I put the tea container on top of a frozen gel ice pack to cool it faster.

Next, I added the chai tea, ice, and three generous scoops of vanilla ice cream to my blender and blended until smooth. Then I poured it into a mug and topped it with a spoonful of whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. I even threw in a long cinnamon stick to make it a little extra.

The recipe does say this makes two servings, but I used very large mugs. They hold 16 ounces, and I was only able to fill one. You’ll need to use much smaller mugs to get two 8-ounce servings.

So how was it?

This Chai Frappuccino was a lightly spiced creamy vanilla treat. The ingredients were easy to find, and I had no trouble at all following the instructions. All you need in the way of special equipment is a blender, and you will be on your way to this chai-flavored dessert in a glass. Or should I say mug? LOL!
