Starbucks: Buy One Get One Free Drinks!


Just like Black Friday deals, jingle bells and credit card debt, Starbucks’ seasonal drinks marks the beginning of another holiday season.


This season is all about giving and Starbucks is here to help you share.  This Thursday (today!), Friday and Saturday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., when you buy one of these festive drinks, you can get another one of equal or lesser value for free. BOGO Free at Starbucks, now that’s hard to beat!


From left to right:

  • Caramel Brulee Latte (my personal favorite!)
  • Peppermint Mocha
  • Gingerbread Lattee


Now all you have to do is decide on which drink you want and which friend you’ll slow down and sip your sweet drink beside.


What is your favorite drink and who will you share it with?

Just-like-Starbucks’ Frappuccino

Just like Starbucks' Frappuccino


I’m a huge Starbucks’ frappuccino fan!  I love them but because of their cost I’m not a frequent Starbucks’ customer.  Plus, have you noticed how many calories one of these bad boys can have?  Upwards of 500 calories!  I would have to run about 5 miles to burn that off and if you know me, you know that isn’t going to happen in this lifetime. {I’m all about exercise but 5 miles and me just don’t mix!}


Still having a love for this summery drink of goodness I decided to play around and see if I could create my own just-like-Starbucks’ frappuccino at home.  I think it’s pretty close and well worth the little extra effort to make.  It only takes 5 minutes to prep and 2 minutes of work.  7 minutes is shorter than the 15 minute drive to the Starbucks’ drive-thru.


This recipe can easily be printed too!  Simply click on the green “Print Friendly” button below this post to have a hard copy of this yummy recipe.


Just-like-Starbucks’ Frappuccino
2 min | 5 min prep

Serves 1



  • 2 cups of crushed iced
  • 2-1 ounce shots of espresso OR use 3/4 cup of strong coffee mixed with 1/2 cup of milk and increased crushed iced amount by 1/4 cup.
  • 3/4 cup of your favorite milk
  • 3 tablespoons of sugar {Use more or less to suite your tastes}
  • Whipped cream from a can or freshly made whipped cream
  • Chocolate syrup {Use your favorite syrup or flavored powder}



  1. Blend all the ingredients except the whipped cream and chocolate syrup in a blender for 30-45 seconds.  Pour into a tall glass and top off with whipped cream and garnish with your favorite topping {chocolate syrup, cinnamon, caramel, etc.).  Serve with a straw and enjoy!
Other Variations: Splenda can be used in place of sugar.  A portion of the milk can be replaced with any flavored coffee syrups or creamers.  For a richer beverage, try replacing a portion of the milk with half and half of heavy whipping cream.


There are endless variations of this basic frappuccino recipe and I hope you enjoy experimenting with yours as much as I do with mine.  Enjoy!


Disclaimer: This is not Starbuck’s actual proprietary recipe. This is my own personal copycat version of their frappuccino recipe. This recipe is for a blended iced frappuccino drink similar to but not exactly the same as you’ll find at Starbucks.
