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. ;) 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. ;) 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. ;)

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

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