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! :)

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.
