It is getting hot here. Once in awhile it is nice to drink something cold and yummy…

I think this caramel frappuccino is better than the original. Let me know what you think. 🙂

The caramel is homemade.  Watch the heavy cream as I have noticed it is harder and harder to find real cream rather than cream with skim milk and lots of additives. Always read labels, even on organics!

Caramel Frappuccino Recipe
2 c. ice
1 c very strong coffee or espresso, chilled

2/3 c. organic half and half

¼ c. caramel topping (recipe below)

1-4 tbs sugar

Whipped cream

Blend all ingredients except whipped cream until smooth. Top with dollop of whipped cream and a swirl of the caramel syrup.

Caramel Syrup

8 ounces unsalted butter
8 ounces brown sugar
1 cup organic heavy cream (make sure it does not contain skim milk and additives, organic or NOT!)
1 tbs vanilla OR 1/2 c kahlua or irish cream

  1. Melt butter. Do not let it brown.
  2. Mix in brown sugar,and butter. Stir until smooth and sugar loses its graininess.
  3. Continue to cook stirring until mixture bubbles. Cook about 30 more seconds but do not allow to scorch!
  4. Remove from heat.
  5. Slowly add cream and vanilla or liqueur.Stir.

Store covered in fridge. Makes an awesome gift.

Makes about a pint.
