By Rich | May 16, 2017

It’s one of our favourite past times. Meeting a friend for a tasty cool beverage and a chit chat at Starbucks or Dunkin’ Donuts. It’s almost impossible to resist the temptation of one of the many sweet iced drinks on offer at our favourite fast food diners. We have always wanted to be able to create those cool refreshing drinks in our own home. With a little creativity we now can, and we thought we’d share our home made drink recipes with you guys to enjoy!

The 6 home made drink recipes below allow you to indulge in some of the tastiest treats available in fast food restaurants today, from Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts to McDonalds own McFlurry. (We know it’s technically not a drink, but in our defense… It’s soo tasty!)

Hopefully with these 6 fast food drink recipes you’ll love the results.

Wendy’s Frosty Recipe

Wendys Frosty Copycat Recipe

We thought we would start with our favourite of the bunch. The Wendy’s Frosty. It’s not quite an ice cream, but not quite a milkshake. It is however a sweet chocolate treat which will have you floating on a cloud of chocolate once you’ve given it a go, courtesy of the Cool Whip.

With only 3 recipes this Frosty recipe clone is easy to create and only requires an ice cream freezer.

Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino Copycat Recipe

Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino Copycat Recipe

We’re a sucker for a Frappuccino of some sort when we are in Starbucks, and our favourite is the Caramel Frappuccino. Something about the sweet caramel mixed with the coffee just works.

This is our go to drink to create at home on a hot day. One of the best things to add to this Frappuccino recipe is a dash of whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce.

Dunkin Donuts Coffee Coolatta Copycat Recipe

Dunkin Donuts Coffee Coolatta

The Coffee Coolatta courtesy of Dunkin’ Donuts has become a touch of a throw back of late. Dunkin’ Donuts have removed this classic coffee drink from its menu, which made us want to recreate the Coolatta recipe even more. This recipe allows you to get that Coolatta fix at home.

The Coolatta comes came in a variety of flavours, with the hazelnut being a fan favourite. This base recipe can be combined with additional ingredients to create the hazelnut or vanilla swirl.
