Delicious and refreshing, this salted caramel frappe is the perfect pick-me-up anytime of the day!
We've talked about my coffee addiction plenty of times. You know it and I know it, I can't go without my coffee. In the winter I drink it hot, and in the summer I love it over ice. But sometimes I like to get crazy and switch things up a bit!
I love to stop at my favorite coffee shop in the morning and pick up a good latte, but we all know how expensive that can get. Which is exactly why I created this delicious salted caramel frappe. It's super simple to make, costs a fraction of what it would be in a shop, and it's incredibly creamy and delicious. My oldest son, who recently discovered his love for coffee, (he's in college now!) said this tastes even better then what he would get in a cafe! And I love that it's better for you too.
There are many different brands of salted caramel syrup that you can easily find in stores and use in this recipe. I use the Torani syrup, which can be found in most grocery stores as well as on Amazon. Any one will work though!
