I am addicted to these things..
I moved to Australia last year from Southern California and needless to say I practically lived at Starbucks. They don't have to many stores here and most don't sell the drinks I normally buy. I had a friend who worked there for a long time then she quit so she gave me a simple recipe to make them from home.

  • Step 1

    Gather your ingredients
    3/4 cup crushed ice
    1/2 cup milk (I like a little milk you can add more as desired.)
    Cinnamon(Optional)
    2 1/5 to 3 scoops Vanilla Bean Ice Cream(I go for 2 scoops but anything between that is good.)
    1/2 tablespoon sugar
    Another optional ingredient is a shot of coffee or espresso and turn it into a cappuccino.

  • Step 2

    Get a blender and put your 3/4 cup of crushed ice in first.

    Then add the milk

  • Step 3

    add your scoops of ice cream.

    Blend for 10 seconds or until it has reach the consistency in which you want it.

    BE CAREFUL NOT TO OVERDO THE ICE CREAM

  • Step 4

    Add about 2 or 3 pinches of cinnamon(Optional)

    Add sugar.

    Blend again for about 10-20 seconds. Make sure all the ice is crushed and the shake looks smooth.

    BE CAREFUL NOT TO OVERDO CINNAMON

  • Step 5

    Leave it in the blender for about 1-2 minutes before you pour into your cups.

    Now as this sets you can get the glasses ready. If your not using syrups then skip to last step.

  • Step 6

    Take a glass. I use a tall drinking glass. Drizzle some syrup into it. I love caramel so that is what I use. Swirl the Caramel around the glass. Making sure the bottom is coated but the sides aren't completely.

  • Step 7

    Pour the Vanilla mixture into the glass. Top with Whipped cream. Add a tad more cinnamon or caramel to the top and enjoy.

Wow, that looks really nice! I'm wondering, can you use anything besides ice cream (not like froyo, but a complete substitute)? I live in Africa, and we don't get ice cream often. my mom makes ice cream, but that's a rare occasion, too! :) Can you tackle the caramel frap next?

actually, it'll also work if you infuse milk with VERY LITTLE cinnamon & some vanilla. then blend with ice, some coffee/espresso and what not.

but your version sounds thicker :D
i just make mine (infused milk, vanilla ice cream...) and just make it "on the rocks." the ice chunks annoy me.
