Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino Recipe

  1. Prepare the Pumpkin Spice Syrup according to the recipe instructions.
  2. Brew the espresso. You can make double-strength coffee in a drip machine or percolator by using 1/3 cup coffee with 1 cup water. When the first brew is complete, run the coffee through the machine again for a second brew with the same grounds.
  3. Refrigerate the coffee until it is very cold.[6]
  4. In a tall glass or pitcher, combine the coffee or espresso, milk, sugar, pectin and pumpkin spice syrup. Stir until the sugar and pectin have dissolved.
  5. To make iced frappuccino: pour the coffee mixture into a glass containing ice.
  6. For frozen frappuccino: in a blender, combine the coffee mixture with ice and blend until smooth.[3]
  7. Top the iced or frozen frappuccino with whipped cream, drizzle a teaspoon of pumpkin spice syrup and a sprinkling of cinnamon on top.

  • Pectin is commonly used in beverages as a thickening agent. If you do not have pectin on hand, don’t worry, it cam be omitted. Your frappuccino will be slightly thinner, but will still taste delicious.
  • You can experiment with other seasonal flavors by substituting different flavor syrups in place of the pumpkin spice. Try using Starbucks Vanilla Syrup to make a vanilla flavored frappuccino.
