Picture this: it’s a chilly fall day outside, the Dark Lord is on the loose, and you just stepped into the Three Broomsticks for a frothy glass of Butterbeer with your best friends. Pretty great, right? In the Harry Potter series, Butterbeer is everyone’s favorite treat when they visit Hogsmeade Village, which is near Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. And while I’m over here still waiting for my Hogwarts acceptance letter to come in the mail (shh — it could happen!), there’s one way I like to channel Harry, Hermione, and Ron: making this sweet frozen Butterbeer drink at home!
Whether you’ve been to Universal Studios and have tried Butterbeer for yourself or you’ve only had dreams about what it tastes like, this recipe is so comforting and familiar that you’ll swear you’ve been drinking it all your life. Not only is this frozen Butterbeer delicious, it’ll also remind you of magic, friendship, adventure, Quidditch, and the candlelit hallways of Hogwarts all wrapped up in one sip. It only takes five ingredients and about 10 minutes to prepare, so you can easily whip it up during your next Harry Potter movie marathon or annual reading of the series. Check out the steps below; they’re so easy, even a Muggle could do it!
