Caramel Frappe Recipe

Searching for the perfect Caramel Frappe Recipe – I love my coffee and there’s nothing else like McDonald’s coffee. In the winter I just love their Hot Caramel Mocha. In the warmer months, I love McDonald’s Caramel Frappe! I’m pretty sure that my husband is addicted to them. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Whenever I am out and about, I have to run through McDonald’s drive through and grab him a Caramel Frappe!

Not only is it costing me a fortune (for that caramally goodness in a cup) but there’s just a few (hundred) calories in those buggers!! So off in search of the perfect homemade caramel frappe recipe!

I tried a few!

Recipe #1:

Caramel Frappe Recipe

For my first try I used:
12 oz International Delight Iced Coffee light
1/4 Cup Caramel
Top with Whip Cream

It was good but not quite like McDonald’s. It probably was missing some of the calories that made it taste as good as McDonald’s. ๐Ÿ˜‰ But still a good option if you’re looking to cut down on the calories. The International Delight Iced Coffee was about the price of one Large Frappe so still saving money and calories.

Recipe #2:

For my second Recipe I used:

1 Cup Nescafe Memento
1/4 Cup Caramel
Whip Cream to top

Again, it was good but still not like McDonald’s. :/

Recipe #3

Third time is the charm right? :)

For the third recipe I used:

6 oz Cold Coffee
1 C Milk
2-3 T Caramel
2-3 T Sugar
Whip Cream to Top


Pour coffee in ice cube tray (will fill half of the tray) and freeze.
Once coffee cubes are frozen blend all ingredients in blender, top with Whip cream and enjoy!
Makes one serving.


**Side note, in the pictures you may notice that my measurements are not what I noted in the recipe. I made a double batch and then actually had to use my bigger blender. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Let me know if you try it and how you like it!

Thank you, Sweet Pennies from Heaven for my favorite recipe!

    It sounds delicious and the best part is – I don’t have to share because my husband doesn’t like coffee. (I do NOT know what is wrong with that boy! LOL)

    After looking for a while I’ve found that the best way to get the taste of a caramel frappe like one from McD’s is to purchase Caramel Macchiato flavored International Delight Iced Coffee at Walmart. So everyone who reads this knows, I got this idea from a manager at an McD’s near me where I used to spend a lot of time and I became good friends with most of the employees and managers. It costs about $4, and I believe you get about 3x’s more coffee when compared to McD’s frappe.

      In addition to this I drink it without ice because otherwise it gets watered down and doesn’t taste the same.

    I love the third recipe its great thanks

    Number 3 is the best. I just love it. Just yesterday I went through McD’s drive thru after 4 long hours at the doctors office and was in time for the special that they are now running. The 2 for the price of one drinks. I always get 2 Caramel frappes. This will save me money and time going out to get one. Thank you so much.
