Cotton Candy Frappuccino

Vickie Parks


Everyone needs a Cotton Candy Frappuccino in their very near future. And this homemade version is just as good but more economical than the one on Starbucks 'Secret Menu'.

For the raspberry syrup, you can use the Torani (or similar) raspberry syrup that Starbucks shops use to flavor coffee drinks. But if you don't have it or it's not easy to find in your area, you can use raspberry jam or raspberry preserves (seedless or not, your choice) and it'll produce the same flavor as bottled raspberry syrup.

As I see it, if you like it, then there's no wrong way to make a Cotton Candy Frappuccino
