How does a Caramel Frappuccino taste?

If you love coffee and caramel sauce, then you are going to love this Caramel Frappuccino. It is the perfect drink for a hot summer day or if you love to drink you coffee cold.

This Frappuccino is best served immediately. The Frappuccino will become watery and thinned out as it sits.

Frappuccino Variations:

  • Change the Flavor – You can change the flavor of this Frappuccino by using different syrups. We recommend chocolate, strawberry, white chocolate, or pumpkin. You can even mix two flavors.
  • Thicker Consistency – If you like your frappuccino to have a thicker consistency, add more ice cubes.
  • Thinner Consistency – Use less ice if you like a thinner frappuccino.
  • Creamy Consistency – If you prefer a creamier consistency, then use half and half instead of milk. You can also add a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
  • Salted Caramel Frap – Add a teaspoon of sea salt to your coffee drink with the caramel syrup to make your own salted caramel frappuccino.
  • Xanthan Gum – A secret ingredient that you can add that gives the drink creaminess and thickness to your frappuccino, add a teaspoon of xanthan gum to your blender.
  • Almond Milk – If you are wanting to avoid dairy, use almond milk or soy milk. You can also use low fat milk, but the Frappuccino may not be as thick.
  • Sugar Substitute – If you are looking for a healthier version or trying to cut down on sugar, you can use a sugar substitute. You can even omit the sugar if you prefer.
  • Vanilla – You can mix in sugar and vanilla together for extra warm flavor with the caramel.

How to Make Frappuccino Stronger?

I love coffee and when I make a frappuccino, I like it a little stronger because of the ice and milk that is added. Making this frappuccino at home allows you to add more add more or less coffee and caramel sauce .

Fee free to taste test it and adjust as needed. You can also freeze old coffee into ice cubes in an ice cube tray overnight and then add it to the blender. This enhances the flavor and makes your frappuccino stronger.

You can also add a teaspoon of instant coffee to the blender. This gives an extra kick of caffeine.

Can you Freeze Leftovers?

When I make these for my family, we drink them pretty quickly because they are so tasty.  However, if you do have leftovers, I recommend freezing them in mason jars in your freezer.

Then when it’s time to serve your leftover Caramel Frappuccino, take them out of the freezer and let them thaw for about 20 minutes on the counter.

After this time, they will be ready to drink and enjoy!

    Simple and delicious recipe!

    Step #2 of the instructions neglect to tell approximately how much ice to use. Also, aren’t the words thicker and thinner in the last sentence of that step reversed?
