How to make the Starbucks Strawberry Funnel Cake Frappuccino?
Start with the classic frappe base, instant espresso, and whole milk in a blender, mixing until the powders are incorporated. Next, add in the ice with the butterscotch and cupcake syrups, pulse until the ice has broken down into the desired consistency. Finally, taste and adjust the strawberry funnel cake frappuccino by adding more syrup, ice, or milk if needed.
Once you've made your frappuccino, drizzle the strawberry puree around the inside of your glass; then, layer in whipped cream and your Starbucks funnel cake frappuccino into the cup.
Make the vanilla-flavored whipped cream by hand, or purchase a reusable whipped cream canister off Amazon. Provided below is a basic recipe.
1 cup cold heavy whipping cream
¼ cup simple syrup
Instructions for hand whipping:
Using a stand mixer with the whisk attachment, whip until firm peaks form. Use immediately.
Funnel cake pieces?
I do not have these written in the instructions because I did not test this, yet. However, I think rice crispies tossed in powdered sugar would mimic the consistency of the original. If you try this, let me know if it worked in the comments.
