Ingredients for a Starbucks green tea latte

Here are the ingredients you need to prepare your delicious Starbucks green tea at home:

What is xanthan gum?

Starbucks uses a frappuccino base (made with xanthan gum) for all their frappuccinos. Xanthan gum is a common food additive used for stabilising and thickening drinks or food. It’s the secret ingredient Starbucks uses, and is produced from simple sugars using a fermentation process (here’s more about xanthan gum). You can make the frapuccino without, but it will have a different consistency and won’t be as smooth. Xanthan gum is available in big supermarkets such as Whole Foods, Walmart (US) or Tesco (UK). Of course, you can also buy it from Amazon. Buy it once, and it’ll help you make to make many frappuccinos at home.
