iced coffee beverage

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup warm water
  • 2 teaspoons sugar or 2 teaspoons sugar substitute
  • 1 packet of starbucks instant caramel iced coffee
  • 12 cup milk
  • 1 12 cups ice
  • 2 small scoop ice cream
  • refrigerated reddi whipped topping
  • hershey's classic caramel ice cream topping


  1. In warm water, dissolve sugar and coffee packet. Allow to cool in refrigerator. Add ice, milk, coffee, and ice cream in blender and process on high - you may have to stop periodically and stir as the mixture is cold and may not have enough liquid to keep it going. If a stronger coffee flavor is desired, you may add instant coffee granules to the warm(or hot) water. You can also experiment by varying the amounts of milk and ice cream. I plan to try different flavors by using a regular coffee packet and the flavored coffee creamers like hazelnut and others.

Yum yum yum. Where to start:
I guess it's most important to say: if you make it exactly as written, it will not be as icy as McDonald's. I prefer to make my coffee mixture and refrigerate it (sealed) hours in advance.

I cannot get Folger's caramel groove mix at my store, so I bought Hills Bros white chocolate caram cappuccino mix, and used it instead, with no issue. I also bought Smucker's Caramel sundae syrup because I think (not 100%) that it's more gooey, which is how I like it.

All-in-all I'm soooo satisfied I decided to try this recipe. McDonald's is not getting $2.50 from me a day any more, and I'm having 2 frappes a day instead of 1. Hahah! :)

I abosolutely love this recipe!!! My store doesn't sell Folgers caramel groove cafe latte mix so I had to substitute it with Maxwell House International cafe French Vanilla. I used the sugar free kind to so I could make it a little healthier. I also added the fat free reddi wip to the top. Delicious!! Thanks for the recipe.

I looked at all the recipes for the frappies. Yes , I too got hooked at McDonalds, driving sometimes twice a day for the high calorie drink. I came up with with a veryyy delicious and even somewhat nutritious drink: Dump 2cups fine ice into a smoothie blender, add 3 tsp. caramel frappe International coffee, 3/4 tsp Folgers instant coffee, and 1 cup PureAlmond natural milk that has been warmed in microwave for one minute. Blend till smooth. Beat this : 270 calories
