This is my copycat version of the popular Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino®! Top each glass with whipped cream and drizzle additional caramel over the whipped cream. Serve with a straw. Leftovers keep well in the refrigerator!

I loved this! I used Truvia instead of sugar and skim milk, which turned this into a Caramel Frappuccino Light. My newest addiction! Read More

This was excellent and taste as close to Starbucks as you will get. To make the perfect strong coffee for this drink use 2/3cup of your favorite ground coffee and 2 cups of water and brew it once and then run it through the machine again using the same coffee grounds. You will end up with just over one cup of coffee. Cool in the fridge or freezer before using. For those who prefer a creamer drink use half and half in place of the milk. No need to stop at Starbucks I will be trying different flavor variations using this base recipe as a guide from now on. Read More

This recipe is amazing! Tasted identical to the original. The second time we made them my daughter and I did a half caramel half chocolate syrup mix for a mocha caramel Frappacino also wonderful. Thank you for the recipe. DD gives it 10 stars!! I love the money I'm saving as I let her make these as a treat before an out-n-about adventure. (She's 11) Read More

The recipe was good but not my favorite. It tasted a tad watery with all the ice coffee and low fat milk. I have an espresso machine but opted to try the recipe as written. Coffee places don't use large amounts of regular coffee to make these drinks. If you don't have an espresso machine I would suggest buying instant espresso or brewing ales set amount (1/4 cup) of strong coffee instead. Read More

I ended up using a ton more syrup, but then again when i go to starbucks i have the smallest scoop of ice that there is so mine drink usually tastes more caramely. this tastes seriously like a starbucks frappuchuno. I used Hersheys caramel syrup then added whipped cream on top. I' am over all super happy. Though I made a bit too much now i have a TON lol Read More
