Inside Cooking Ep 17: Caramel Frappuccino Copycat

Caramel Frappuccino Copycat: This iced coffee, sweetened with caramel is a real treat – and so simple to make at home. The amazing wake-you-up smell of espresso, blended with ice and milk is so refreshing for all.

Ingredients (for 2 persons)

1 cup large ice cubes
2 shots espresso, cooled (or ⅓ cup strongly brewed coffee, cooled)
½ cup milk, cold
1 tablespoon caramel sauce
3 tablespoons caramel syrup (45ml)
Xanthan gum, optional
To serve,
Whipped cream
Caramel sauce
* When large ice cubes are used, there will be less than 10 cubes for each drink.

(Preparation time: 10 mins)

In a blender, add in 1 cup of large ice cubes and 2 shots of espresso. You can also use a ⅓ cup of strongly brewed coffee. If you use Nespresso capsules like me, I recommend that you use capsules of mild intensity. Then a ½ cup of cold milk, any milk as desired. Add in 1 tablespoon of caramel sauce. And add in 3 tablespoons of caramel syrup depending on your preference. Then add in just a pinch of xanthan gum, which is optional. Actually these days I use Xanthan gum quite frequently because it is also used in a milkshake, ice cream, and gluten-free cooking for better texture.

Pulse and blend. It should take about 30 seconds.

For finishing touch, top with whipped cream and drizzle homemade caramel sauce.
