I don't know what inspired me to make this drink. Maybe it's because I had 12 ounces of chocolate milk that I didn't want to go waste or maybe it's the fact that the Girl Scouts have never paired up with Starbucks to make a Samoa Girl Scout Frappuccino(yet anyway). In that case, this is what I would envision getting at a coffee shop.
Now granted, a Samoa Cookie Frappuccino is a secret menu item at Starbucks that your barista may or may not know how to make, but I looked at that recipe and it had a mocha flavor in it. There's no mocha in a Samoa Girl Scout cookie!!
Starbucks does make creme Frappuccinos without coffee or mocha flavor. Those are the only ones I'll drink though! I don't like the flavor of coffee.
I thought this would be a popular video, but I suspect it won't be because the first 1 minutes and 18 seconds have the picture very fuzzy and the audio super low. Unfortunately, that video file got corrupted. People hate bad audio in a video. Bad picture, not so much. The rest of the video is fine after that point.
But nevertheless, I persisted in making and sharing this video with you guys.
When I think of a flavored Frappuccino drink, I think of all the flavors not only in the drink itself, but in the toppings as well.
I used an unusual ingredient in the drink- roasted coconut butter, which a) is a thing and b) tastes like roasted caramel and has the consistency of peanut butter even though it's made from coconut! It's so addicting! That's why I keep it in the top shelf in the pantry. :)
