Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • For the raspberry sauce, you can use a homemade raspberry simple sauce or you can purchase it already made at the store. 
  • You can also use a raspberry simple syrup. If you do use this you may find that your cotton candy frappuccino is more white than pink. It will still have the same flavor. 
  • You can easily double or triple the recipe. 
  • You can omit the whipped cream if you prefer or use canned whipped cream.
