Finding recipes that are easy and you enjoy can be challenging. Here are some easy recipes to try at home. 

Vanilla Frappuccino

Ingredients: :

½ cup of sugar 

1 cup of milk

1 tbsp of vanilla

1 cup of ice 

2 scoops of vanilla ice cream 


Blend all of these together in a blender. 

This recipe is great for a Starbucks craving without going out, and is refreshing on a hot day. The ice cream is optional. Does not have an impact on taste but does give more of milkshake type texture.
