We all know and love Starbucks. And if you don’t, then what are you even doing here? Anyways, so many people rant and rave about Starbucks, as I do so myself. However, sometimes, as much as we love making those trips to our most favorite coffee place, we just don’t feel like leaving the house. Let’s take a look at some of the most easiest and delicious Starbucks copycat recipes to make at home!

We’re going to dive into 7 of the most delicious copycat recipes that we can recreate at home, all without leaving the house!

What is your personal favorite Starbucks drink? Have you ever tried to recreate it from home?

In no particular order, here are the best 7 Starbucks copycat recipes to make at home:

1. PSL Jello Shots

Obviously, the original PSL just simply cannot be recreated no matter what you do, so instead, let’s make some PSL-flavored Jello shots! The liquor that you’ll need for this is Kahlua, to help give that coffee flavor; however, if there are kids around that love pumpkin-flavored anything, just use some pumpkin-flavored pudding, minus the adult part of it, that way all can enjoy these!

2. Caramel Frappuccino

All you need for this is coffee, whole milk, ice, and caramel…what could be easier than this?! Obviously speaking if you want it to even taste close to being good, you’ve got to use a stronger coffee. We all know that some people just simply don’t like Starbucks because the coffee is too strong. Then you don’t like coffee, if you ask me. For this recipe, the more caramel, the better!

3. S’Mores Frappuccino

For this recipe, you’ll need marshmallow fluff, your most favorite cold brew coffee, heavy cream, milk, ice, vanilla ice cream, and finally some graham crackers (both for the blended part as well as the topping part). Make your own delicious whipped cream for this, or buy your favorite spray can of it. Either way, this is not only a fun drink, but a super delicious dessert drink option as well!

4. Lemon Pound Cake

Couldn’t go this whole list without mentioning something related to their food items, so why not one of the most popular loafs than the Lemon Pound Cake (loaf)! Here are all of your beloved ingredients that you will need: butter, sugar, lemon zest, eggs, vanilla extract, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, buttermilk, and now for the creamy glaze: just powdered sugar and lemon juice!

5. White Chocolate Cranberry Bliss Bars

I also couldn’t do this list without talking about these. We need to all rally together and petition that these be available all freaking year long, people! Come on, who’s with me? Here’s what you need for the blondie part: flour, baking powder, ground ginger, salt, butter, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, dried cranberries, and white chocolate chips. The frosting is white chocolate and orange cream cheese-based, so make it your own to your little heart’s content why don’t ya!

6. Vanilla Bean Frappuccino

This is also one that is super easy to recreate and definitely a hit if you have any kids at home, or just people who aren’t coffee fans (weirdos, I know, sorry, babe). Here’s literally all that you need: your most fave vanilla bean ice cream, ice, whole milk, vanilla extract, and whipped cream for the topping. Go creative with sprinkles and other toppings to truly make it yours!

7. Iced Guava Passion Fruit Drink

The final drink on our list is super delicious, but I haven’t seen it come back in a while, so why not recreate it, am I right or what?! If you’ve never had this at an actual Starbucks, here’s exactly what you need to make it at home: (for the syrup) pineapple chunks, sugar, and fresh ginger and finally (for the drink itself) unsweetened coconut milk, guava juice, passion fruit juice, pomegranate or tart cherry juice, and of course some ice! Drink up in the Summer or whatever season you’d like!
