Homemade Iced Coffee Drinks - Mr. Coffee Frappe Maker and Caramel Macchiatos

UPDATE:  I don't believe this product is being made any longer so I found a couple similar items currently available on Amazon and have linked them at the bottom of the post.  You can also make this drink with a good quality, powerful blender and some brewed espresso.  Adapt! 



It's late afternoon, I need a pick-me-up but I am not in the mood for hot coffee.  It's 90 degrees out and an iced coffee sounds great, a caramel macchiato version even better.

So I made it.

Much easier than running to the local coffee shop and having to spend 5 bucks on a drink.  And... I get to make it my way, with my ingredients.  Sugar free syrups, flavored coffees. Mixtures of ingredients I want to put together without being charged an extra $.50 per addition.  Whipped cream, skim milk, coconut milk, sugar free vanilla syrup, caramel..  I chose!

This is one of those small appliances that so many people don't even know exist unless someone tells them.  It's the Mr. Coffee 20-Ounce Frappe Maker and it's an appliance I am still using about 2 or 3 times a week after about a year.  I use it for iced coffee drinks of all kinds, but I also find myself using it to crush ice for homemade icee's as well as making frozen margaritas and more.  It's a coffee maker and a blender all in one.
