Instructions: DIY Caramel Frappuccino
There are two ways to make caramel frappuccino e.g. coffee-based and cream-based. But we will learn to make coffee-based frappuccino for now.
First take a blender and add 1 cup of ice cubes and 2 shots of cooled espresso. You can also use 1/3 cup of strongly brewed coffee. If you want to use nespresso capsules then it is recommended that you use capsules of mild intensity. Then add ½ cup of cold milk of any brand you desire. After that, add 1 tablespoon of caramel sauce. It’snot necessary to get a branded caramel sauce from the market as one can make it home also. There are plenty of simple recipes available on the web to make it. Having done that, add 3 or 4 tablespoons of caramel syrup depending on your liking. Also you can add a pinch of xantham gum which is optional. Xanthan gum is actually a byproduct of fermenting glucose and sucrose. When added to our caramel Frappuccino, it will form the gum which will thicken the drink. This can also be used in milkshake, ice cream and gluten-free cooking. Now pulse and blend the drink which should take around 30 seconds to do it.
