Most Starbucks stores in the UK have been shut for some time, which means the secret menu and drinks piled high with cream and syrup have been off the cards.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t have yourself a delicious Frappuccino from the brand, in the form of one of their bottled drinks.
A TikTok by Natalie Lee that went viral recently has absolutely blown our minds, after she put the bottles in the freezer to make them into Frappuccinos.
While the milky drinks were tasty on their own, they didn’t have the icy hit of the ones you buy in a coffee shop.
All Natalie did to turn them frosty, though, was pop the bottle in the freezer for a couple of hours.
Although initially it came out looking like liquid, after a quick shake, it had turned into the Frappuccino we know and love.
Natalie’s TikTok has now racked up over 950,000 views and 200,000 likes. Commenters were shocked that they’d spent their whole lives enjoying the chilled bottled drinks without knowing they could be levelled up so easily.
But as it turns out, it’s not exactly a hack, and certainly isn’t recommended by the coffee chain.
We contacted Starbucks for comment, and they said: We love seeing the creative at-home recipes that our customers come up with, like the drink you’ve mentioned! For the safety of our customers, we do not recommend freezing Starbucks Bottled Frappuccino as this may cause the glass bottle to crack.
‘We encourage customers looking for a cool and creamy drink to pour their Starbucks Bottled Frappuccino over ice, or shake with ice in a cocktail shaker and pour into a chilled glass.’
This is the ‘make a sandwich toastie with an iron’ hack all over again.
