The secret to making perfect Frappés at home that will rival Starbucks and save you money is to use a base syrup. It will transform your frappé from an iced coffee or smoothie to a creamy and delicious Frappé! With just 4 totally natural ingredients it’s healthier & super easy to make!
DO I REALLY NEED TO ADD THE FRAPPÉ BASE?
You may be thinking, “Why do I need the base anyways? Can’t I just omit it?” The answer is yes you can, but the secret to making perfect Frappés at home that taste even better than store bought is the Frappé Base.
The Frappé Base:
- Transforms an iced drink into a smooth, thick, creamy one just like the ones that Starbucks has made SO irresistible to so many around the world!
- Made from all natural ingredients that will improve the texture & flavour of your Frappé significantly!
- Recipe will make enough base for an entire Family of Summertime Frappés

Have you ever thought of Frappés or Frappuccinos as healthy? Me either. These Family of Frappés definitely still contain fats & sugars and should be consumed in moderation. However, the ingredients are all pure & totally natural, so as far as treats go, they are much better for you when made at home!
INGREDIENTS IN FRAPPÉ BASE
- Pure Maple Syrup
Did you know that Pure Canadian Maple Syrup is naturally vegan as they do not use any animal by-products at all in production! How do I know this? My husbands Uncle has a Maple Tree Farm in which they collect the maple sap, and produce Maple Syrup in their amazing “Sugar Camp”! I have witnessed 1st hand the hard work and dedication that goes into boiling the maple sap, canning it and producing the most incredible delicious natural sweetener!
- Warm Water
Used to help create the “gel” for the Frappé Base.
- Pure Vanilla Extract or Vanilla Bean
I like to add both Pure Vanilla Extract & a the seeds of a Vanilla Bean Pod to my Frappé Base. However, vanilla bean pods can be expensive so I often opt for just pure vanilla extract and it does the trick!
WHAT IS PSYLLIUM HUSK ANYWAY?
- Psyllium Husk
Psyllium is a form of soluble fiber from a plant called Plantago Ovata, that grows worldwide but is most common in India. The plant produces gel-coated seeds, from which psyllium husk is derived.
Psyllium is one of the main ingredients in Metamucil! So needless to say it is incredibly good for the intestinal tract and in fact it enhances the digestive process & has prebiotic effects. Psyllium husk is very rich in fibre and can help improve & prevent constipation and haemorrhoid pain. Research is even showing it can help manage diabetes and may even lower risk of developing diabetes! On top of all of that psyllium husk is heart healthy, may help decrease blood pressure, decrease cholesterol & can help with weight management. Psyllium contains antibacterial compounds that help eliminate toxins in the body & in turn give you healthy glowing skin! You can find psyllium husk at most grocers and health stores (e.g. Blush Lane Organics).
