Like a milkshake, the strawberry frappuccino is a cool, refreshing drink easily made at home on hot summer days.

Alexander Clash, a Starbucks barista, said a simple strawberry fappuccino can be made with a few simple ingredients. While strawberries are used here, Clash said any fruit can be substituted depending on preference.

You will need: a blender, 1 ½ cups strawberries, ½ milk, 3 tablespoons of crème flavored syrup, 1 cup of ice and cream for topping.

Step 1: Chop and simmer the strawberries.

Step 2: Pour milk, strawberries, syrup and ice into blender.

Step 3: Blend ingredients until the mixture is pale pink.

Step 4: Pour into glass and top with cream. Enjoy your homemade frappuccino.
