Cool Down With a DIY Iced Caramel Coffee Frappe Simple & Healthy Recipe! ✅

Sometimes you need coffee and dessert. At the same time. This is why Frappuccino is so popular; There’s nothing quite like that creamy milkshake-like sweetness combined with a hint of caffeine. It is the perfect cure-all, especially on a hot day.

However, as we all know, store-bought smoothies aren’t exactly a financially sustainable habit. Plus, who knows what’s in some of those mixes? (I once saw a strange powder added to mine in a bar. Powder!)

How to use the cold infusion

They may sound fancy, but all you need to make smoothies at home is a blender, some ice, some coffee, something to make it creamy, and whatever flavor you want.

If you’re making (or buying) batch cold-pressed coffee, this is a great way to use it. For even more coffee flavor, use ice cubes made from the cold press.

You can experiment with different ways to add sweetness: chocolate almond milk, vanilla soy milk, or any of the seemingly endless flavors of coffee creamers (we used Caramel Macchiato for this recipe).

To thicken the drink, you’ll need yogurt (dairy or otherwise) or ice cream if you want to get really decadent. Yogurt ice cubes are a pretty brilliant option too.

You put the toppings, but the whipped cream or the coconut whipped cream are always an unmissable accompaniment. I also garnished this with a drizzle of caramel, which makes it almost too cute to drink. Almost.

Caramel Iced Coffee Shake

Cool off with a caffeinated caramel iced drink made with Greek yogurt and cold-pressed coffee.

Preparation time5 min

Total time 5 minutes

Servings: 2

  • 6 ounces of cold pressed coffee
  • 4 dates
  • 4 tablespoons of coconut cream
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt or ice cream dairy or non-dairy, vanilla, coffee, chocolate or caramel (I used Oikos Greek Yogurt Macchiato with Caramel)
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes or cold-pressed ice cubes or coffee
  • Put two small glasses in the freezer for 5-10 minutes before making the smoothie.

  • Add dates and coconut milk to blender and blend until smooth, caramel-like consistency. Transfer to a small bowl

  • Put all the other ingredients in the blender, pouring in the liquid first.

  • Blend until smooth (I like it when a few ice chunks remain) and pour into glasses (you can also go with a tall glass, don’t judge here).

  • Enjoy the light and fluffy concoction as your coffee or make it into a dessert garnished with whipped coconut cream and a touch of caramel.
