22 Starbucks Copycat Recipes Your Wallet Will Thank You For

One of the hard facts of life is that sometimes your favorite Starbucks drink just doesn’t vibe with your wallet. But that doesn’t mean you have to swear off your coffee addiction altogether. If you look hard enough, there’s actually a Starbucks hiding in your kitchen. Okay, not actually — that would be weird — but with a few ingredients you can recreate your favorite treats with Starbucks hacks at home. From sweet danishes and breakfast wraps to skinny coffee, here are the recipes you need to access Starbucks at home.

1. Skinny Caramel Frappuccino: Now you can enjoy this sweet caramel drink in the comfort of your home and feel healthy doing it. This recipe calls for stevia in place of sugar, so it’s sugar free. (via Averie Cooks)

2. Starbucks Petite Vanilla Scone: Use vanilla bean paste in this scone’s frosting for a punched-up dessert flavor. It’s one way to make your morning meal feel like a special treat. (via Crazy for Crust)

3. Gingerbread Latte: Enjoying gingerbread in drink form is as simple as adding a few festive spices and sweeteners to your coffee. The flavor is so satisfying, you won’t even miss the to-go cup. (via Dishing Up the Dirt)

4. Healthy Homemade Strawberry Frappuccinos: You can have your strawberry frappuccino and drink it too with this easy recipe. It’ll turn your post-gym smoothie into a healthy frappuccino that only tastes like an indulgence. (via Desserts With Benefits)

5. Copycat S’mores Starbucks Frappuccino: This copycat s’mores frappuccino recipe is like a quick camping trip, without all the bugs, dirt and potentially inclement weather. Enjoy this drink in the comfort of your home, with ingredients you have in your pantry. (via Baking Beauty)

6. Copycat Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher: Iced teas at Starbucks can be expensive. Before you know it, you’re left with a tea-less cup full of ice. This copycat Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher is inexpensive to make, drink and make again. See you never, Starbucks! (via Lisa’s Dinnertime Dish)

7. Pumpkin Spice Lattes With Real Pumpkin Puree: To get the best pumpkin taste, The Girls on Bloor use pure pumpkin puree instead of pumpkin pie filling. This lets you add in your own fresh spices instead of the ones packaged in pumpkin pie filling. It makes a huge difference! (via The Girls on Bloor)

8. Cranberry White Chocolate Bars: These cranberry white chocolate bars taste better than the Starbucks version because you can enjoy them fresh out of the oven. Oh, and you can have a whole tray full for a fraction of the cost! (via Celebrating Sweets)

9. Pumpkin Scones With Spiced Glaze: Not-too-sweet pumpkin scones get a double dose of icing in this copycat recipe. One icing is plain and sweet, while the other packs a spiced punch. Now you can experience fall any time you want. (via Brown Eyed Baker)

10. Cotton Candy Frappuccino: Who knew that mixing raspberry syrup with vanilla resulted in cotton candy? With this information, we feel like we could build frappuccino magic any time of year. (via Instructables)

11. Vegan Double Chocolate Muffins: If you want to rest easy knowing exactly what’s going into your baked goods while saving lots of moolah, this recipe is for you. These double chocolate muffins taste like Starbucks’ while being completely vegan and full of rich chocolate flavor. (via Honey and Figs)

12. Copycat Starbucks Lemon Loaf Cake: This recipe is for those of us who are all about Starbucks, but not just for the coffee. This moist lemon loaf cake tastes just like the one available at your local Starbucks. You can have the whole thing for a fraction of the price! (via Creole Contessa)

13. Copycat Starbucks Black Bean Quinoa Wrap: This tasty Starbucks lunch item has since been discontinued, which is precisely why you need this recipe. Inspired by rice and bean burritos, the quinoa in this wrap is a protein-rich upgrade. Your day just got more productive. (via She Knows)

14. Blackberry Mojito Tea Lemonade: This tea lemonade knows how to stand out from a crowd. Pureed blackberries give this refreshing drink its bright red hue. It’s like Arnold Palmer’s cute sister. (via Life’s Ambrosia)

15. Copycat Starbucks Hearty Veggie and Brown Rice Salad Bowl: Step aside, other salads! There’s nothing wimpy about Starbucks’s salad bowl. It’s chock full of nutrient-rich veggies like kale, peas, butternut squash and broccoli. Unlike Starbucks’s rice salad bowl, this version uses maple syrup instead of honey to keep it vegan. Score! (via Kim’s Cravings)

16. Starbucks Turkey Rustico Panini Made Skinny: You can’t order a skinny version of Starbucks’s turkey panini, which is all the more reason to make this sandwich at home. Opt for a light swiss cheese, sautéed onions and a fiber-full sandwich thin. A few bites into this lunch and you’ll wonder why you ever stood in that Starbucks line in the first place. (via Skinny Kitchen)

17. Skinny Vanilla Iced Coffee: This skinny vanilla iced coffee doesn’t require a trip to the store or Starbucks. It’s only three ingredients — coffee, your milk of choice and vanilla extract. Yay, saving money! (via iFoodreal)

18. Copycat Starbucks Egg Salad Sandwich: This clever take on Starbucks’s egg salad sandwich uses Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise for a healthy twist. Of course, if you miss the mayonnaise, feel free to do you. Kim even recommends adding bacon, nuts or diced apple to amp up the flavor. (via Kim’s Cravings)

19. Copycat Starbucks Passion Tea Lemonade: The key to recreating passion tea lemonade in your home is Tazo passion tea bags. From there, all you need is lemonade and a dash of vanilla extract. (via Cincy Shopper)

20. Vanilla Iced Chai Latte: Jazzing up your iced chai latte with vanilla is such an easy idea that we aren’t sure why we never thought of it before. Plus, it’s only three ingredients and takes just over five minutes to make. Never wait for your name to be called out again. (via The Grant Life)

21. Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Latte: Brew an extra strong cup of espresso for this cinnamon dolce latte. The bitterness of the espresso strikes a not-too-sweet balance with the addition of brown sugar and cinnamon spice. It’s a more indulgent way to get your dose of caffeine. (via Diethood)

22. Copycat Starbucks Spinach and Feta Breakfast Wrap: Recreating this Starbucks breakfast wrap at home lets you add more ingredients that the original might have lacked. Add extra feta or spinach to satisfy your morning cravings. Best of all, you can really taste the difference in freshness. (via The Big Man’s World)
