How To Make A Frappuccino

My take on Starbucks’ famous Caramel Frappuccino! Simply combine coffee, milk, caramel sauce, and ice in a blender and process until smooth. Drizzle additional caramel sauce on top of the whipped cream in each glass.

Use a straw when serving. A Frappuccino from Starbucks, especially one with caramel, is the pinnacle of indulgence. This caramel Frappuccino recipe is a knockoff from Starbucks, but it can be made at home for far less money.

A Frappuccino Is…

Starbucks has registered the term “Frappuccino” as a trademark for a particular style of blended coffee drink. The beverage tastes and feels like a cross between a milkshake and an iced coffee because it is made with ice, coffee, and flavoured syrups.

Taking elements from both “lait frappe” (a French milkshake) and “cappuccino” (an espresso-based coffee drink with steamed milk), the term “Frappuccino” was coined.

What Goes Into a Caramel Frappuccino:

This recipe for a caramel Frappuccino, inspired by Starbucks, requires just five simple ingredients:

Ice: This caramel Frappuccino starts with a foundation of ice. Although crushed ice is preferable (and works better in a blender), cubed ice can still be used.

Brew Coffee: It’s important that the coffee is flavorful enough that it doesn’t get lost in the mix. It’s equally crucial to chill the coffee thoroughly to avoid melting the ice.

Milk: When blended with ice, low-fat milk produces a mouthfeel that is simultaneously velvety and refreshing.

Sauce caramel: Drizzle the caramel sauce around the inside of the glass before adding the Frappuccino if you’re feeling fancy.

Sugar: Add some white sugar to taste. For two servings, the recipe calls for three teaspoons, but you can modify the amount of sugar to your liking.
