How to Make This Birthday Frappuccino

Using a blender, add all ingredients together, then blend until smooth.

Next, create the whipped topping by first placing a metal mixing bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes. Remove from the freezer, and add sugar and cream to the bowl. Beat on low to medium, beat the cream until it is thick and you see stiff peaks.

Next stir in fresh raspberries. Add to your newly blended frappe. Top with fresh whole raspberries or rainbow sprinkles. Serve and enjoy!

Now, doesn’t this whipped topping look delicious?

I was even thinking you could substitute the fresh raspberries for any type of berry. However, I am thinking strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, or heck, what about snozberries?

You can play around with fun and special substitutions. After all, it is your birthday (Maybe). Enjoy! Don’t forget to garnish with sprinkles, a cherry, or whatever else sounds yummy to you!
