Frozen Caramel Coffee

homemade caramel frappucino

This past weekend, I was bound and determined to show my husband that he could make his favorite coffee drink at home!  Many people stop by their local coffee shops daily picking up that $5 drink.  In my mind that drink times 5 days a week is $100 a month or more in coffee that I could most certainly use elsewhere in my budget.  My husband does not do this and neither do I, but my husband does spend his extra money on these coffee drinks, so I wanted to show him a homemade alternative.  In my opinion it taste better too!

This recipe does make a blender full, so what I like to do is put them in freezer safe containers such as these, Ball Plastic Containers.  Then, in the morning while you are getting ready for work just sit one out on the counter for a few minutes to thaw.  Once you are heading out the door you can take your drink with you.  I prefer making plenty of these so that I only have to do it one time a week it should fill at least 5 containers and for myself I do not drink these daily.  If you are the same it could likely last you a few weeks.

Let’s not forget all that homemade whipped cream too.  I store this in the fridge and if you are in the mood for whipped cream just put a little on top of your coffee.

Also remember you can use this recipe to make a Mocha Frozen Coffee as well simply replace the caramel syrup for chocolate syrup.  Now, let’s get to this recipe so you can whip up your favorite drink at home!

Frozen Caramel Coffee

Yield: 4-5 16oz Drinks

Ingredients:

Drink:

  • 1 Cup Brewed Coffee
  • 2 Cups Skim Milk
  • 1/2 Cup Caramel Syrup (I use the kind used for ice cream sundaes)
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla
  • Ice

Whipped Cream:

  • 1/2 Pint Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 4 Tbsp Powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp Vanilla

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients for the drink into the blender with lots of ice and blend well.
  2. In a mixer whisk together the whipping cream and powdered sugar with vanilla until fluffy. I usually put the whisk attachment on my mixer and let this go on HI for 5-10 minutes. It can go longer until it gets to the whipped consistency.
  3. This whipped cream can be spooned onto the drink or you can use a decorators bag and cake tip to add it. Then, drizzle with a little bit of caramel and serve.

 

Note:  This typically will make a blender full.

 

Enjoy this wonderful treat!

    Will this work with instant coffee? I’m not a big coffee drinker, but I love frapuccinos. I don’t even have coffee pot..

      These are pretty small containers, so it may be that they are small enough that it doesn’t take long at all to defrost. When my husband takes them to work and uses a large cup like 24-32oz, he’ll put them in the fridge the night before to get them defrosted. If it does take longer, I would suggest putting it under some hot water from a few minutes to speed it up. I have a feeling though it’s just that those containers are small.

    My daughter and I made the mocha version of these this morning & they were awesome! Ours were decaf though, unfortunately, since I am 9 months pregnant and she is only 4.

    Any idea about how may calories these are? I’m trying to eat healthier & have found that all the “fancy” coffee drinks are LOADED!

      To cut down the calories, you can use skim milk and sugar free caramel syrup. Also, either skip the whipped cream or use a light whipped cream. In this recipe the calories are going to come mostly from the whipped cream.

    I bet Jamie would love this. He’s a big iced coffee drinker! :)

    What type of coffee?? Coffee beans? Ground coffee? Or instant coffee? Thanks!

      I just used regular brewed coffee. You can cool it off in the fridge if you want too. Instant or ground coffee would work, just brew it in the coffee maker or if it’s instant make it as instructed.

      I also updated it on the post because it was unclear, thanks for asking!!

  13. Perlaposted May 10, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    Oh, ok! Brewed coffee? That makes sense now! LOL. I feel like that was a silly question now ;-) Thank you for the clarification! :)

    Its such as you read my thoughts! You appear
    to understand so much approximately this, like you wrote the e book in it or something.
    I think that you simply can do with a few % to pressure the message house
    a little bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog.
    A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.
