Unicorn Frappuccino | How To Make A Unicorn Frappuccino
Greetings my lovelies! Hi, it’s Emmy. Welcome back! Today, I’ll be making a little dupe recipe once again. If you’ve missed my video a couple days ago, and it was the Starbucks American Cherry Pie Drink that was only available in Japan. And I am back with another Starbucks recipe, one that you’ve probably heard of, and it’s for the Unicorn Frappuccino. So, if you haven’t heard about the Unicorn Frappuccino, it’s a brightly colored, Frappuccino, or essentially a milkshake that’s pinkish, purplish, and it has this blue swirl on the inside of the cup that’s sour, so as you mix the drink the flavor is supposed to change.
It’s supposed to be a fruity unicorn frappuccino which is a little bit different. And then it has some whipped cream on top and then more kind of sour sprinkles on top. And if you follow my InstaStory at all you probably saw me taste it there…. and give my opinions of it, so I did that little bit of research so I could come up with this recipe. And if you missed the story, my reaction was one of actual surprise. I didn’t expect to like it because I knew beforehand that was going to be fruity flavored. But I was pleasantly surprised because there’s a nice amount of sourness to the drink, so it really balanced all the sweetness. If you like these kinds of recipes be sure to like this video so I know it.
Alright. Let’s go ahead and get started. So the first thing we’re going to do is make our blue sour syrup! So my little Starbucks fairy gave me the breakdown of this drink and specifically told me that this drizzle is SOUR. So to make this — this is actually the white chocolate syrup — so, in a saucepan we are going to combine one (10 ounce) can of condensed milk; one (5 ounce) can of evaporated milk; six tablespoons of sugar; and three ounces of chocolate chips which is about a heaping third of a cup. So we’re going to put that on the stove and then, on low, just combine that all together until the chocolate chips and the sugar is completely dissolved. So now we have a beautiful white chocolate syrup. So we’re going to take half of that and add one packet of blue raspberry lemonade: this is the unsweetened Kool-Aid, so it is very, very, very sour.
Make sure you save a little bit of this so you can dust the top of our unicorn frappuccino drink. Mix that really well — I really wanted this to be nice and vivid, so I added two drops of neon blue food coloring to this as well. And there we have it: our beautiful, sour syrup. So now that we have our syrup made, we’re going to go ahead and make our frappuccino.
Sooo, let’s get our blender. To the bowl of our blender, we’re going to add half cup of vanilla ice cream — mmm — equal amount of ice: about a half a cup. Noisy! So my Starbucks fairy said there’s about a teaspoon of pink powder which gives it the vivid color and a little bit of flavoring. I am going to use this: this is a Bottle Pop candy in strawberry. A teaspoon of that. The key component of the frappuccino is the mango syrup — so this is just some Torani Italian Soda syrup — I’m going to add about a teaspoon and a half of that.
And then what else I’m going to add? that, that, that, that, that and that and that…. And then I’m going to add a splash of milk. Not too much — just a splash. All right, this is only going to be a little bit noisy… Ahhh!! Because mine’s not nice and bright and pink, I’m going to add a few drops of neon pink food coloring. Next we’re gonna take our syrup — drizzle it all on the inside of our cup. Beautiful. Pour our hot pink frappuccino in there. Oh my gosh. Yes! Look! It looks so great! Okay…now, we’re going to take our whipped cream… Oh yeah! Next, we take a little bit of our reserved Kool-Aid powder, and dust This is “No Artificial Dyes” food coloring. I just stumbled upon this at my local grocery store, but these come in powders. So, the berry one is made from beets, and it’s this beautiful pink color.
Oh my gosh! Yes! That is gorgeous! This turned out beautifully, and I am so excited about it. Let’s put my little lid on here. *singing* Beautiful! It’s so pretty, it’s so pretty! Stick that in there. All right, let’s give our crowning achievement a taste. Itadakimasu! Mm-Hmm. It tastes just like it. Maybe slightly more vanillaed because I used vanilla ice cream, but very, very, very close to…. Mm-Hmm. I think what’s essential is the mango syrup. It really gives it that fruity tropical fruit flavor. Let’s try to mix in some of that syrup and see if it changes flavor. Mmm. I wouldn’t call it flavor changing — it just gets more sour — which, again, I like. And, if we incorporate the swirl in there, it does change color, because the basic tenets of color theory say that red and blue make purple. So we’re getting this kind of lavender color. And it tastes just like the Starbucks recipe — I am very, very pleased with that.
