This ultra creamy delicious Peppermint Frappuccino is made in just minutes! You will love this festive holiday drink!
The second most searched recipe here on Maebells is my Vanilla Bean Frappuccino. There is a very good reason for that. It is good, darn good. It is actually one of my most made recipes here at home too. I love it! It is super addictive and will eventually make me very poor because I spend all my pennies on vanilla beans!
A few weeks ago I was home alone doing some recipe testing for the blog. I decided I needed a little pick me up so I got out all of my ingredients to make a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino when I saw a package of candy canes sitting right next to the blender. Frappuncino? Candy canes? Why had no one thought of this earlier!
This Peppermint Frappuccino is full of minty vanilla flavor! It is the perfect festive drink for the holidays if you are looking for a light, non alcoholic, non coffee drink! It has all of the creaminess of a milk shake without the calories because in place of ice cream I use frozen fat free cool whip! And as a big bonus it has simple ingredients you probably already have on hand!
It is sure to be a winner at your next holiday get together! Or a Saturday afternoon snack!
