Disney Luca Frappucino Recipe

Luca Frappucino Recipe – Many people love anything to do with Disney. It doesn’t matter whether it is a trip to the Disney parks, walking around the Disney stores, or watching your favourite films over and over again. There is just something about Disney that makes things feel magical.

Often it is the Disney movies that truly capture the imagination. Especially with our children. They can become easily obsessed with particular films and one of the latest releases from Disney, Luca, has done just that with many children all over the world.

Set in a beautiful seaside town on the Italian Riviera, the original animated feature is a coming-of-age story about one young boy experiencing an unforgettable summer filled with gelato, pasta, and endless scooter rides.

Luca shares these adventures with his newfound best friend, but all the fun is threatened by a deeply held secret: he is a sea monster from another world just below the water’s surface.

So it is no surprise that many families are looking for Luca inspired things. Whether it is toys, bedroom decor, or even food and drinks options.

If the food or drink you serve your children has some form of theme that they can relate to then they may feel more inclined to try new things. This brings me to this incredible recipe that I think the whole family will love.

The Luca Frappuccino. Without further ado, here is everything you need to know to recreate one of these gorgeous looking and tasty drinks at home.

Recipe notes and tips

This is a relatively straightforward recipe to follow and the chances are your children might want to get involved with it as well. I wanted to share with you a few extra notes and tips to ensure that you can recreate these at home with ease.

  • Vanilla ice cream is always going to be the best option for this recipe. But if you like the taste of mint then instead of using green food colouring when blending the ice cream with the other ingredients you could just have mint ice cream instead?
  • If children want to get involved you could easily allow them to put the ingredients into the blender. Have everything p0ortioned out ready and allow them to add them to the blender and then blitz. Younger children can also get involved with this.
  • This is a recipe that would be best enjoyed immediately.

Variations to try

Like with many recipes there will always be variations to try. Here are a few suggestions.

  • Instead of decorating the whipped topping with sugar, you could get a little more creative. Tun the glass upside down and dip the rim in honey and then the coloured sugar. You will get a cute sugar-coated rim on the glass that will look very effective. Plus you can enjoy the honey sugar taste if you sip the drink at the end.
  • You could use this method to create other themed frappuccinos. Red and white for Mickey and Mini. Yellow and purple for a Beauty and the beast theme. The more you think about it, the more creative you can be with it.
  • If you wanted to make it a more adult-themed drink you could add a liqueur like Baileys to the mixture.
  • If you were doing other themes you might be able to use coloured and flavoured ice creams instead of the food colouring gels.


Of course, there will always be questions that everyone might have when it comes to trying a few different recipes. With this Luca Frappuccino recipe here are some of the common questions that you might have.

Can it be made ahead of time?

This is something that is best served straight away due to the nature of the ingredients. It is a chilled drink.

Hopefully, you will enjoy making and drinking your Luca inspired Frappuccino.
