Need a little pick-me-up but don't want to head to the local coffee drive-thru? Make this frozen caramel frappuccino at home instead!
I'm a huge coffee drinker… case in point this gallon jug of homemade iced coffee. Yes, that happened. And it usually lasts less than a week. Is that terrible that I might go through a gallon of coffee in a week?? If it is, then I don't want to be right! haha
Anyway, my love for coffee only started after I got old enough to truly enjoy it. You wouldn't catch me drinking it when I was younger unless it had loads of cream and sugar making it taste nothing at all like coffee but rather more like a giant glass of sugar water. Yuck. Looking back, I now see the error in my ways.
I now enjoy my coffee either black or with a little creamer, just to make it change color, and no sugar. Or I make it into fun drinks like this frozen caramel frappuccino.
Now, I've been using unsweetened almond milk in my protein shakes for years and recently stumbled across Silk Almond Milk Creamer on my trip to my local Walmart and decided to give it a try instead of my regular creamer. I was pleased to find that the flavor and texture were spot on and I could definitely see myself permanently replacing my daily creamer with the Silk Almond Creamer.
As I could see, it currently only comes in three flavors: Vanilla, Caramel (the one I bought), and Hazelnut. Which is perfect because I usually only buy the unsweetened vanilla creamer, anyway.
With all that, I set out to try and recreate one of my favorite coffeehouse drinks because there are no delish coffeehouses here were I am. The hubs only drinks iced or frozen coffee so I knew this one would be a hit with him too. Since I already did one with mocha, it seemed perfect to do one with caramel since I had that in the fridge and the Silk Caramel Creamer was what I purchased.
It turned out tasting just as though it came from you favorite coffee house but now you can enjoy it at home! These will definitely be made more often with that giant gallon of iced coffee I make from time-to-time.
