Low-Calorie Recipe Swap for Starbucks Cupcake Crème Frappuccino Blended Crème
Turn Your Cupcake into a Cupshake!Of course we're drawn to the Cupcake Crème Frappuccino Blended Crème at Starbucks. (We're only human!) But the calorie count is a serious turnoff -- 400 calories for the Grande with 2% milk and whipped cream. And when we tasted it in order to re-create it, we found it to be WAY too sweet. Our version is insanely delicious with a calorie count that'll make you swoon...

SmartPoints® value* not what you expected? We follow the same method as WW (formerly known as Weight Watchers) when calculating the value of a recipe: We add up the SmartPoints® values* of the individual ingredients using the Recipe Builder, not the calculator. (Many foods have a value of zero and remain zero in recipes.)
