Caramel frappuccinos were my go-to drink for years whenever I would get anything at a coffeeshop during the summer.  Whether it was a caramel ribbon crunch frappuccino or a basic caramel frappuccino, I absolutely loved it! Flash forward to now and I have fallen love with making them at home!

Now the biggest difference in how homemade frappuccinos are made vs those you get somewhere like Starbucks is that they use a coffee frappuccino syrup as the base whereas I use vanilla ice cream and coffee.  You get a pretty similar result from ice cream and coffee plus it makes it easier to make at home.

Common Questions About Making Caramel Frappuccinos

What is a caramel frappuccino?

A caramel frappuccino is a blended drink made using caramel syrup, cooled coffee, vanilla ice cream, and ice.

Can you get a caramel frappuccino without coffee?

Yes! If you want to make a caramel frappuccino without coffee, all you need to do is substitute milk for coffee in the recipe.

What is the difference between a frappe and frappuccino?

There is not a difference between a frappe and frappuccino.  The name just depends on what coffeeshop you are at.  Another name for the same drink is a blended coffee.

What is the difference between a frappuccino and iced coffee?

The difference between a frappuccino and iced coffee is that a frappuccino is blended and has a base that is made from vanilla ice cream or something similar.  An iced coffee is simply coffee served over ice.

What kind of ice cream can I use?

I usually stick to vanilla bean but you could substitute in something like chocolate or french vanilla instead and it would be pretty good!

Can this recipe be made vegan?

Of course! Instead of dairy-based ice cream, use a non-dairy substitute such as coconut-based ice cream and make sure you pick up a bottle of vegan caramel.
