Homemade Frappucino Copy Cat Recipe (Iced Coffee – with my Keurig Coffeemaker!)

June 2, 2011

Now that I can drink caffeine again I had to attempt making my own copy cat frappucino (like Starbuck’s!). Especially since it’s hot out now and the usual hot coffee isn’t always so appealing. I looked around online and came up with my own concoction of things compiling a few recipes. It turned out delicious! I figured I would share since I came up with it myself so you won’t find the exactly recipe elsewhere. (At least..that I know of? Heehee)

Lilly’s Homemade Frappucino Copy Cat Recipe (Iced Coffee)

Ingredients –

2 tablespoons of flavored coffee OR a flavored K-Cup (I put 2 tbsp of Wegmans White Chocolate truffle into a reusable K-Cup filter)
4 tbsp heavy cream
2 heaping spoonfuls of Splenda
2 tbsp caramel syrup (I used Gloria Jean’s vanilla caramel syrup, purchased at their store in the mall!)
Just over 1 cup of ice

Instructions –

1. Brew your coffee on the iced coffee setting. (If your brewer doesn’t have this setting just brew it strong (5-6oz cup). If you don’t have a keurig you could probably just brew 2 tbsp of coffee with 5-6oz of water). Basically you want a strong coffee base!

2. Put ice in blender.

3. Add 4 tbsp of heavy whipping cream to your coffee. Stir and then pour over the ice in your blender.

4. Add 2 heaping spoons of splenda (or sugar if you aren’t watching your weight or hate artificial sweeteners).

5. Add 2 tbsp of caramel syrup.

6. Blend until smooth and frothy.

7. If you want to get a little crazy you can add some whipped cream on top now..I didn’t but I’m sure it would taste fantabulous. I just figured my thighs wouldn’t agree! 😛

 

That’s it! Mine turned out so yummy.

I am going to play with the recipe a bit and see how it turns out with some skim milk swapped in for the heavy cream to save some calories. I think the total calories for mine was 290 calories which isn’t too bad. Sometimes that’s all I have time for in the morning with a 6 month old so it ends up being my breakfast plus energy boost with the caffeine!

If you have any ideas or tweaks feel free to share them in the comments!
