It doesn’t get any easier than this 3 ingredient vanilla frappe recipe. If you enjoy vanilla bean frappuccinos, you will love this delicious, creamy drink.

Plus, the recipe is so easy that the kids can make a batch themselves. (Just be sure to supervise, especially when they use the blender!)

The toughest part of the recipe is waiting the 2 or so hours it takes the milk ice cubes to freeze. But don’t worry — I also provided some shortcuts for those who would rather not wait.

How to Make a Vanilla Frappe

Start by filling an ice cube tray with milk and placing it in the freezer for at least 2 hours.

I like to just pop a tray of milk ice cubes in the freezer at night so that I know they will be ready the next day when I am ready to make my frappe.

But, if you want to make your frappe right now, you have options.

Instead of frozen milk cubes you could use:

  • regular ice cubes
  • vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt

The regular ice cubes will result in a slightly less creamy frappe, while the ice cream will give you an even more indulgent treat.

Which every option you choose, it is guaranteed to be yummy.

Ok, back to the recipe.

Place the milk cubes (or ice cubes, or ice cream) along with 1/2 cup of milk, vanilla extract, and sugar in a high-powered smoothie blender.

Avoiding sugar? You can use Stevia or another sugar substitute instead.

Now, puree until well combined. The frappe should have a smooth, milkshake-like consistency.

  1. Gorgeous! I love it so much, thank you for this recipe!
    I’m thinking to add something like choco drops or hazelnuts as well…
    I also like the tips about stevia replacing sugar, just perfect.

  2. Holy yum! This looks delicious! My kids will love it. One of my sons is a huge milk drinker. It’s great for me, too, especially if I make it with low-calorie sweetener.

  3. Such a genius idea to freeze the milk that for sure would make an ultra creamy frappe! Can’t wait to make this for myself and the kids!
