Caramel Frappe

Im a huge fan of McDonalds Caramel Frappe, but honestly, there too expensive. I first found this on Amys blog, Keepin the Sunny Side (her link is on the left side if you would like to visit), she found it at The Pioneer Woman site, the link is here.

Im going to try this recipe except Im going to make it caramel instead of mocha. Ill keep ya posted as too how it goes.

  • ¾ cups Brewed Strong Coffee, Room Temperature
  • ¾ cups Milk
  • 1 package Sweetener, A Single Serve Packet, Your Choice
  • 2 Tablespoons Chocolate Syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons Liquid Coffee Creamer, Your Flavor Of Choice
  • 3 whole Ice Cubes

In a 16 oz. Mason jar, put all your ingredients followed with the ice cubes. Put the lid and ring on and shake, shake, shake!

Taste it. Does it need a little more sweetener?
I don’t like mine horribly sweet, so I stick with one packet of Splenda. The creamer and chocolate syrup add the rest of the sugar to sweeten.

As for the creamer, I used Coffeemate Italian Sweet Cream. It’s nondescript, sweet and creamy and lets the coffee and chocolate shine through.
But, if you like hazelnut or coconut cream, go for it!

At this point, you can drink it right out of the jar or pour it over crushed ice and top with whipped cream and drizzle more chocolate for an authentic coffee house experience.
