King Cake Frappuccino is the perfect non alcoholic drink to have in celebration of Mardi Gras and Fat Tuesday. Made with king cake and espresso for a delightful cold coffee drink.
This Frappuccino is made with Starbuck’s medium roast coffee bean. I used a premade king cake which I found locally at Bucee’s. King cakes are found at the local grocery store in the bakery section.
Gluten Free Version:
To make this gluten free replace the king cake with a vanilla simple syrup and add cinnamon to the drink. This will help give the king cake flavor.
To make this drink dairy free use oat milk to replace the milk in the drink. Dairy free whipped topping is great for topping. Use vanilla simple syrup and cinnamon to give the king cake flavor.
Add ice, milk, and fresh brewed espresso bean of your choice to the blender. Blend well. Now it’s time to drop in some king cake for the flavor. I love king cake shipped straight from Louisiana.
King Cake Frappuccino is great made with Starbuck’s espresso bean. I use another local coffee bean called Perc Coffee. We buy both and love to buy local.
As long as you have a good coffee bean and a good king cake this king cake Frappuccino will be out of this world. I like to top it with whipped topping and purple pearl candies which I pick up at Hobby Lobby.
