Caramel Frappuccino My Way.


A friend of mine got me into iced coffee from Starbucks. The only kind i like is the caramel one and though its pretty good I knew I could make it way better. So while I was browsing the store looking for inspiration for dinner I grabbed the stuff I needed to make my own caramel frappuccino. So here we go.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 shots of water
  • 3 mounded spoonfuls of international instant coffee in caramel vanilla
  • 2 small handfuls of ice
  • Hersey's caramel syrup
  • whipped cream

1. Start by mixing your water with your instant coffee
2. Put your ice in the blender
3. Add in your coffee mixture
4. drizzle in some extra caramel to your liking
5. Blend it all up really good
6. Pour into tall glass
7. Top with whipped cream and more caramel. Enjoy

This really only take a couple minutes and it s sooooo good. Now its not really any healthier than the Starbucks version although if you left out the syrup and whipped cream it would be but as is its about the same. The good thing about it though is the price is a whole lot better. A tall Starbucks is almost $5 with tax and for less than $10 I can make at least 8. That's only $1.25 each. So if your going to fall victim of lifes simple pleasures save money and make it yourself.
