Better Than “The Real Thing”
“Frappuccino” is a trademarked iced coffee drink. It has ice, coffee, milk and flavored syrup, and it’s so thick that it’s a bit like a milkshake. In fact, the name “Frappuccino” is a portmanteau of “lait frappe,” which is a French milkshake, and “cappuccino,” which includes coffee and milk.
You can only get a true frappuccino fresh at Starbucks or bottled at a store, but look no further if you want a perfect homemade substitute. You can save money, have it ready in five minutes without even leaving the house, and serve it to friends when you want to have a fun time or impress them.
How can your own blended caramel iced coffee be even better than the real thing? It’s possible when you use Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee. It’s gentle on the stomach and certified organic, so it’s free from potentially harmful pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides. It’s also less bitter than high-acid coffee.
Ingredients for Low-Acid Caramel Frappuccino
Did we mention that this is a simple recipe? Here’s what you need.
Ice, Crushed is best, but cubed is fine. You’ll divide the ice between the blender and the cup. You can also make ice cubes or chips with coffee instead of water.
Milk. Whole milk and oat milk yield the creamiest results, but low-fat milk, soy milk, coconut milk, and almond milk are all fine.
Caramel sauce. You can use caramel ice cream topping or caramel syrup. To reduce sugar and calories, you can use sugar-free caramel syrup.
Sugar. Adding sugar makes this pretty sweet, but also delicious. Brown sugar can add a bit of a distinct taste if you prefer. Another option is to use hazelnut or chocolate-flavored syrup to add sweetness and a more complex flavor profile.
Now, are you ready for the best caramel iced coffee of your life? Here goes!
