Starbucks Salted Caramel Frozen Coffee

What better way to enjoy the rich flavor of caramel than in your very own homemade cup of Starbucks salted caramel frozen coffee?

Ingredients

3/4 cup cold coffee (Starbucks blend or espresso for the best results)

1 cup milk

2 cups ice

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 cup caramel syrup

Instructions

There are two different ways that you can go about making this:

The Instant Method

First, you have to create your salted caramel by mixing caramel syrup and sea salt in a bowl.

Add the ice, milk, and coffee to the salted caramel and blend using a blender. This creates a smooth caramel blend that melts in your mouth.

The Overnight Method

Mix coffee, sea salt, and caramel syrup.

Leave this mixture to sit in a pitcher overnight.

Mix milk with any sweeteners or sugar you may decide to add.

Pour this mix into an ice tray and let it freeze.

Blend all ingredients together until thick, and semi-smooth.

Add whipped cream as a topping.

Note: Although the instant method is great, the overnight method is closer in texture to the original Starbucks salted caramel frozen coffee.

So if you’re patient enough to wait overnight, then you should definitely go for the latter.
