Starbucks Serious Strawberry Frappuccino: Top 8 Allergy Free
Have You heard? Starbucks introduced the Serious Strawberry Frappuccino to their menu in Summer 2018 and this layered beverage is all the rage this Valentine's Day. Naturally, this icy frap contains more ingredients than I want to count and contains more than one type of milk product. Strawberry puree is swirled into their strawberries and crème frappuccino base and topped with vanilla whipped cream. This drink looks too delicious to miss out on which brings me to this recipe post. I have created the top 8 allergy free version of this millennial February favorite that has a sweet strawberry puree swirled into an icy non-dairy cream frap and it is AMAZING AF!
