Caramel Frappe {Copycat}

I'm kind of a huge frappe fan. I don't really go out of my way to get Starbucks because (don't shoot me) I don't think it's all that good. In fact, most of their drinks are just weird tasting. Except the frappuccinos. I love the frappuccinos. I also completely love the BK Caramel Frappe. I know McD's has one too.

But what in the world do they put in that stuff? I mean seriously, do people even think about it? But I digress...I made a frappe at home...and so easy and more delicious than the stuff you get at any place - gonna make this all the time!

McDonald's Caramel Frappe {Copycat} - you'll never have to leave the house again to enjoy this frozen drink! #copycat #frappuccino #caramel #beverage
What you need:
  • 1/2 cup strong coffee, frozen
  • 3 Tbsp. caramel syrup (the kind in the coffee aisle - not the ice cream sundae stuff)
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 10 to 12 ice cubes
  • Whipped cream (the kind in a can)
  • Caramel Ice Cream topping
Place coffee, caramel syrup, sugar, milk, cream, and ice into a blender.

Blend until smooth.

Top with whipped cream and caramel topping.

I don't care for their coffee either, too strong or bitter or something, but I do like the frozen frappe drinks. I have a Keureg, so don't know how to get strong coffee. Maybe instant? I'd love for you to join my first Worth Wednesday Link Party, http://forwhatitsworth-jeannie.blogspot.com/2012/11/tortilla-roll-up.html

I have tried this using my Keurig. What brand of K-Cups did you use. I am crazy about the McDonald's Caramel Frappe - I drink no less than 2 a day.

@Elizabeth Brooks - to be honest, I have no clue. We're big on Green Mountain Breakfast Blend and the Donut Shop coffees. Anything that's mild to medium roast.
