I love frappes! I don’t love the price…nor do I love that the past couple times I’ve tried to get one, the milk shake machine is down. Really?! What is it with milk shake machines? Why is it so hard to keep them running? My kids were bummed that they weren’t going to get their promised vanilla milk shakes (for being good in Target…bribery at it’s best!). So, I bought some vanilla ice cream to make them milk shakes and then thought, why couldn’t I make my own caramel frappe? Some vanilla ice cream, some milk, some caramel, and a bit of instant coffee. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out…it was delicious!!! Plus, it was so easy and so much cheaper!
I used three scoops of ice cream and about a cup of milk along with a teaspoon of my favorite instant coffee and a couple squirts of caramel. Blend them together – an Immersion Blender works great for this. Pour into a glass and add some whipped cream. Drizzle caramel over the top. Enjoy!
