Homemade Frappuchino: Beat The Heat
During the summer months Oklahoma, I learned how to make a really good homemade frappuchino. I had discovered the caramel frappuchino was just addictive, but expensive if bought in a coffee shop. Where I live, it runs between $6-$7 per 20 oz cup. So, here is the recipe I learned how to make for that really good homemade frappuchino.
These are the ingredients you will need to make a homemade frappuchino:
- 2 ounces of caramel
- 1 ounce vanilla
- 1 ounce of hazelnut if you’d like. It adds a nice touch of flavor.
- 1 and 1/2 cups of milk or soy milk.
- 9 cubes of strong frozen coffee
- caramel sauce to drizzle over top
- whipped cream, or coconut whipped cream
- A blender for whipping the coffee up
I usually make a pot of coffee the day before I make my first frappuchino and I add the sugar into the basket of my coffee maker so it brews through and mixes well into the coffee. You can do the same in a french press. Cool the coffee and freeze it in ice trays. I use frozen coffee because as it melts, it doesn’t dilute the frappuchino as much.
Word of forewarning when making a homemade frappuchino. When you put sugar into the coffee basket, put coffee in first and then sugar. Otherwise the sugar may cake onto the basket.
Once you have all of your ingredients put together, put the coffee cubes, milk, caramel, vanilla, and hazelnut into the blender and blend them up.
The final step to making a nice homemade frappuchino is to pour the mixture into a cup, and put whipped cream on it. Drizzle caramel over that, maybe add a straw, and enjoy!
You now have a delicious homemade frappuchino that did not cost you $6-$7 to make. If you want to do a salted version, here is a good link for that.
Until next time,
