Low-Cal Caramel Frappuccino

We all love a creamy Frappuccino from our local coffee shop. But they can really rack up the calories and fat with the syrups, sweeteners and milks. One drink can have up to 45 g of sugar! But you don't have to give up your favorite treats to stay healthy. It's all about ingredients and portion control. Here's a short and simple recipe for a low-calorie caramel Frappuccino you can make right at home and not sacrifice flavor!

2 tbsp Caramel-flavored coffee grounds, or black coffee grounds
4 oz Water
1/2 tsp Caramel extract
Low-fat milk or plant-based milk, to taste
Stevia or other sweetener, to taste
Ice cubes

Brew a small pot of coffee with the 2 tbsp of grounds and 4 ounces of water. Once brewed, add the caramel extract to the pot.

Pour the coffee into an ice cube tray and let freeze.

Add the coffee cubes and milk of your choice (between 1/2 cup and 1 cup can work) to a blender. Add Stevia or another sweetener if you need. Blend until smooth.

Add more ice cubes and blend to your desired Frappuccino consistency.

Serve with a small dollop of a low-calorie whip cream or caramel sauce if you desire. And enjoy!
