No matter where you are, there’s likely to be a Starbucks store nearby. I guess they’re pretty popular, eh?
If you’re a Starbucks nut, then you know from experience that the cost of your
addiction frequent visits can add up. Thanks to Bustle and some craft food bloggers, here is a list of Starbucks creations you make at home while saving money—and you don’t have to wait in line, either!
1. Homemade Iced Coffee
A Beautiful Mess has the recipe for this coffee staple.
2. Homemade Frappuccino
The Merry Thought thinks the SB Frappuccino is “too expensive for what seems like 3 or 4 gulps of coffee” so here’s how to crank ’em out at home.
3. Mocha Frappuccino
Pastry Affair also thinks the cost is too high for these favorites (in fact, that is a recurring theme for most if not all of these examples) and this sure looks good!
4. Green Tea Lemonade
As Beautiful Mess points out, Starbucks isn’t all about coffee drinks. Here’s a quick way to whip up some SB-inspired Green Tea Lemonade.
5. Salted Caramel Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino
This one has fall written all over it. What’s Cooking, Love? has the deets.
6. Vanilla Iced Chai Latte
The Grant Life has what you need to know.
7. Copycat Oreo Cookie Frappuccino Recipe
Thrifty DIY Diva has an Oreo Cookie concoction you will love.
8. Pumpkin Mocha Frappuccino
9. Mocha Mint Frapp
Beautiful Mess shows us some mint with red and green sprinkles. The holidays can’t come soon enough.
10. Tiramisu Milkshake
A personal rule: if “Tiramisu” is in the name, I want it. Unless it’s “Tiramisu Broccoli,” which is unlikely. And this recipe has LADYFINGERS. As George Takei is fond of saying, “Oh MY.” Check out Fashion Edible for more details.
11. Homemade Strawberry Frappuccino
Desserts With Benefits shows you how to load this one up with fruit and yogurt.
12. Iced Matcha Green Tea Frapp with Coconut Whip
Tea lovers may want to take a walk on the wild side with this drink via Crazy Vegan Kitchen.
13. Easy Homemade Caramel Frapp
Thrifty Frugal Mom shows us how to crank out a Caramel Frapp. And as the name implies, it’s easy.
14. Copycat Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher
Lisa’s Dinnertime Dish serves up her recipe for this tasty treat!
15. Valencia Orange Refresher
Starbucks discontinued this one, but Imperfect Women brought it back to life.
16. Copycat Starbucks Shaken Iced Tea Lemonade
This one has my name scrawled on the side of the cup in illegible handwriting. Making Lemonade shows us how Shaken Iced Tea Lemonade is made.
