The Best Mcdonald's Caramel Frappe
This Mcdonalds caramel frappe is by far the best way to start off your morning. It's made with a delicious blend of cold brew, rich caramel flavor, and a dash of creamy milk.
And, let me tell ya, this homemade frappe tastes like it was made by a pro barista. But, even if you're not used to making drinks like this, it will turn out perfect and it's sure to hit the spot.
I mean, all you need to make it are a few simple ingredients and less than 5 minutes!
How easy does that sound?
Another great part about making this caramel frappe recipe at home is there are multiple variations you can do, like adding a caramel drizzle on top. But we'll get into that later.
By the way, if you want another delicious coffee-based drink that you can easily make in the morning, you'll definitely want to check out this Starbucks sweet cream cold foam and pumpkin cream cold brew next!
Oh, and if you're looking for some easy breakfast recipes to pair this McDonald's caramel frappe with, I highly recommend giving this sourdough French toast recipe or these fluffy waffles a shot.
So, this recipe uses pretty common ingredients. And if you're used to making your morning coffee, I can almost guarantee you have all the ingredients at home already.
Anyway, here's what you'll need to make this McDonald's caramel frappe:
- 4 cups Ice
- ½ cup Cold Brew Coffee
- 3 tbsp. Caramel Syrup
- 2 tsp. Granulated Sugar
- ½ cup Skim Milk
- Whipped Cream
- Cocoa Powder or cinnamon
See, it's like your morning coffee but elevated to another level of deliciousness.
Now, as I mentioned earlier, there are multiple ways to personalize this McDonald's caramel frappe. For example, if you're a caramel lover, try adding a caramel drizzle on top of the whipped cream. And if you like caramel, you'll want to give this Starbucks caramel cold cream cold brew a try sometime.
Or, if you're a Fall enthusiast, sprinkle some pumpkin spice seasoning on top to make this drink taste like Fall in a cup.
By the way, this caramel frappe recipe calls for skim milk, but you can use any kind of milk that you want! Whole milk, almond milk, soy milk, oat milk, or any other milk works great to make this creamy, dreamy drink.
In addition to that, this recipe calls for cold brew coffee. And to make it even quicker to make, I like to just buy the cold brew coffee in a jug from the store. But if you want, you can make your own or just use regular brewed cold coffee from the day before.
Anyway, now that you know just how versatile this McDonald's caramel frappe recipe really is, let's get to it!
How to Make McDonald's Caramel Frappe
So, to make this McDonald's caramel frappe all you need is a few minutes.
Seriously, it takes like no time at all to make this thing.
And believe me, you'll love how easy the process is to make it! Honestly, it's about as easy as just making coffee. So there's no reason not to make this caramel frappe recipe every morning.
Now let's get making this drink!
Step 1: Blend the Frappe
Start by adding the ice, coffee, caramel syrup, sugar, and milk to your blender.
Then, blend the ingredients together until they are well mixed and combined.
Step 2: Finishing Off The Caramel Frappe
So, once everything has blended nicely you can transfer the blended caramel frappe to either one large glass or two smaller glasses.
Then, finish it off with some whipped cream and either a sprinkle of cocoa powder or cinnamon on top.
How to Store Mcdonald's caramel frappe
This caramel frappe is definitely best enjoyed right after you make it, and I don't suggest storing it after it's mixed.
With that said, you can store the base of this recipe - the cold brew coffee - so you can whip up the frappuccino at a moment's notice.
You can store cold brew coffee - or freshly brewed coffee - for about a week in the fridge. Just make sure you store it in a sealable glass jar or another airtight container.

Wow this was delish!!
Score! I tried several other recipes and none were right! Instead of ice and cold brew coffee, i made coffee ice cubes! Used 1 cup coffee ice, 1 tsp sugar, 1/4 cu milk, caramel syrup till i thought it was enough and blended it to perfection! Made a perfect single serving!!
Thank you so much!
I'm so tired of their machine always being down!
That sounds great and we're so glad you liked the recipe!!
Omg..Isn't that the truth! So annoying! I love caramel frappe's from McDonald's, but now I can make them right at home, anytime! Just need to get the syrup and I'm good to go! I can't wait to try it.. but with Ghirardelli Caramel drizzle on top of the whipped cream 😁!
Well done caramel frappe I would make it again.
