QUICK 1 MIN HOW TO VIDEOS FOR EACH FLAVOUR!

These incredibly delicious iced drinks are inspired by the creamy blended Frappuccino made famous by Starbucks, but inspired by the Greek Frappé which was made from instant coffee and ice!

So many of us love Starbucks Frappuccinos! But did you know that the flavoured syrup added to these tasty treats is made with not only a ton of sugar, but also, salt, xanthan gum (a processed thickening agent), & several preservatives that are hard to even pronounce!

The GOOD NEWS is that is is SUPER EASY to make a homemade version of the Frappuccino Base that is xanthan gum & other additive free, processed sugar & salt free, and is made from 4 natural ingredients! Simply water, pure maple syrup, pure vanilla & psyllium husk.

You’ll just love the delicious flavour and incredibly smooth, texture of our Family of Summertime Frappés in a jar! There’s a flavour to delight everyone in the family ♡.

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.

INGREDIENTS

(in 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

  1. 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!

  1. Warm Water

Used to help create the “gel” for the Frappé Base.

  1. 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?

  1. 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).
