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
- 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
- 1/2 Pint Heavy Whipping Cream
- 4 Tbsp Powdered Sugar
- 1/2 Tsp Vanilla
- Combine all ingredients for the drink into the blender with lots of ice and blend well.
- 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.
- 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!
