Each of the pint containers that held the ice cream donned the popular Starbucks checkboxes on the side, making them reminiscent of the coffee cups while at the same time illustrating what is (or is not) contained in the ingredients.
The Vanilla Bean Frappaccino ice cream was smooth, rich, and very vanilla. It had little vanilla bean flecks suspended throughout the frozen cream, giving it a classic appeal while simultaneously boosting its super yummy vanilla flavor.
My husband and I consumed all of the tasty Vanilla Bean Frappaccino ice cream by itself, but the Coffee ice cream I used to make a half recipe of Frozen Tiramisu, one of the recipes that Starbucks shares on their ice cream website (see recipe below).
The Frozen Tiramisu, which starred Starbucks‘ Coffee ice cream, lady fingers (I used this recipe to make them from scratch), mascarpone cheese, and cream, was an elegant sweet treat that was perfect for consumption during the hot weather in which it was enjoyed. And so easy to make!
Overall, we really enjoyed the tasty, rich, and sumptuous Starbucks ice creams and would highly recommend that you try them for yourself!
