Love Starbucks Strawberries and Cream Frappuccino but don’t like all the sugar, fat and calories? I’ve got you covered with this delicious, skinny version! Creamy, full of fresh strawberry flavor and under 200 calories!
Do you love Starbucks Strawberries and Cream Frappuccino? When the weather heats up, I love ordering this yummy Starbucks Frappe, and since it’s caffeine-free, I will occasionally let my little guy order one as well. One day, after looking at the nutritional content for this sweet treat, I nearly spewed my drink out of my nose! I couldn’t believe how many calories this had, and was floored my the sugar content as well!
So, I’ll give you the dirty details – according to Starbucks website nutrition information, a Grande 16 oz. Strawberries and Cream Frappuccino has a whopping 370 calories, 15 grams of fat and a staggering 54 grams of sugar. Ah man!! I started thinking that I could easily duplicate this drink at home and save me and my little guy some calories, not to mention some money in my wallet as well!
I discovered that replicating that creamy, delicious strawberry drink was way easier than I thought! Using just a few ingredients I already had in my fridge, along with some fresh strawberries, and omitting any type of strawberry syrup or flavoring, I saved myself some major calories. My recipe breaks down with the following: 198 calories, 2 grams of fat, and 17 grams of sugar. The milk had 6 grams of sugar, 6 grams for the yogurt, 4 for the strawberries, and just 1 gram from the whipped cream. I used a container of Dannon Light and Fit Greek Yogurt, which is where 80 calories came from. The milk had 43 calories, 45 from the strawberries, and 30 from the whipped cream. Not bad, right?! If you’re a Weight Watchers person, the point value on this drink is 4 points.
Best of all, my skinny version tastes almost exactly like the Starbucks version! The best of both worlds, am I right?!
Here’s the easy recipe to make your own Skinny Strawberries and Cream Frappuccino:
This recipe makes a 16 oz., or Grande sized drink. Add a couple more strawberries, and increase the milk to about 3/4 cup and you’ll have a Venti sized drink for just a few more calories!
