Low Carb Keto Vanilla Bean Frappuccino
Have you been to Starbucks and ordered a vanilla bean frappuccino before? I must be completely honest and tell you I have not. I'm a coffee lover for sure, but I've always avoided any kind of frappes at coffee shops simply because I know the sugar is outrageous despite the fact they are undeniably delicious.
I also avoid the option for pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup since it contains artificial sweeteners which raise blood sugar and cause cravings.
I mean who wouldn't love a little vanilla bean ice cream type shake during the day as a treat right? And now you must be wondering, is it even possible to duplicate a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino Recipe at home and make it sugar free? Yes it is and it's super easy!
What is in a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino?
Typically Starbucks Vanilla Frappuccino recipe has no coffee in it at all. According to the Starbucks website, I believe it's made with sweetened condensed milk, vanilla bean powder and ice and topped with whipped cream of course!
According to the Starbucks menu and online nutrition information, their frappuccino has 57 grams of sugar and 59 grams of carbs in one 16 fl oz serving!
I think you'll be happy to hear my copycat Starbucks vanilla bean frappuccino has no sugar and 2 grams of carbs and is just a better option, especially if you are trying to reduce your sugar intake!!
Top with some sugar free whipped cream and shaved sugar-free chocolate and anyone will be happy to enjoy this homemade sugar-free frappuccino version, kids or adults!
The main difference between my sugar-free drink and a sugar-free Starbucks drink is that I do not use sugar substitutes that spike blood sugar and are artificial. I only use low carb sweeteners that do not raise blood sugar and are natural.
How to Make Sugar-Free Vanilla Frappuccino Homemade Version
This seriously takes minutes in your blender and if you want it even thicker try my vanilla bean ice cream instead of the heavy cream!
Sugar-Free Vanilla Bean Frappuccino Ingredients
You need unsweetened almond milk or see substitutions below. Heavy whipping cream, vanilla bean or vanilla extract, low carb sweetener, I chose vanilla stevia. Ice and optional to thicken, xanthan gum.
Sugar Free Frappuccino Directions
Place all ingredients together except ice.
Blend on high for just a a few seconds to combine.
Add ice and blend again for a just a minute to crush ice.
Taste and adjust stevia if needed.
Serves 4 at about 1 ½ cups each or serve 2 for a larger portion!
Sugar Free Substitutions
You could sub the heavy cream with coconut milk to make this dairy free!
You can also sub the almond milk with whole milk. I do not recommend using nonfat milk or low fat milk.
Nutritional information does not include optional toppings.
To make this a little more authentic as Starbucks, use my Single Serving Vanilla Bean Ice Cream prepared, in place of the one cup heavy cream used in the recipe. Your nutritional information would increase.
If you don't have a vanilla bean, use 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
Adding pinch of xanthan gum helps thicken the frappe.
If you want to get real fancy you can add some sugar-free syrup, like from the brand Lakanto, sugar-free maple syrup over the whipped cream would be decadent!

Excellent!! And I’m so glad it didn’t include sugar alcohols. I have vanilla Stevia.
I had some leftover coconut cream, so I use that. It was nice and thick.
