Starbucks' secret Valentine's Day frappuccino is the only relationship we need (video)

Now, you know we absolutely love ordering off of Starbucks' secret menu, and they've just debuted a slew of three frosty Valentine's Day frappuccinos. But just in case you can't get your fix quickly enough, we have a tasty homemade version of our favorite, the Love Bean, right here. This frap might just be better than a boyfriend. Inspired by Starbucks The Love Bean Frappucino IngredientsFor raspberry syrup: 1 pound raspberries 2 cups water 1 cup sugar For the frappuccino: 1 cup ice 1 1/2 cups milk 3 scoops vanilla bean ice cream 1 teaspoon sugar 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 tablespoons raspberry syrup For the garnish: 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream 2 tablespoons sugar 2 tablespoons raspberry syrup Chocolate curls Directions To make raspberry syrup: Place raspberries in a medium saucepan with water, and bring to a boil. Once it starts to boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and let the raspberries cook for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the water is deep pink in color. Strain the raspberry liquid through a fine mesh strainer and return to the pot. Discard the berries. Add sugar to the liquid, and bring to a simmer. Let the syrup simmer for 5 minutes or until the sugar is completely dissolved and the syrup has thickened. To make raspberry whipped cream: In a stand-up mixer, whip heavy whipping cream with sugar until stiff peaks form. Add raspberry syrup and mix slowly to incorporate. To make the frappuccino: In a blender, blend together ice, milk, vanilla bean ice cream, sugar, vanilla extract, and raspberry syrup until smooth. Garnish with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
