Coffee lovers unite!
I haven’t made a coffee post in a while, and I think it’s finally time to give my coffee loving readers what they want! If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that I’ve become the queen on coffee lately. With the quarantine still very much so being here, and me just wanting to save my wallet from the usual Starbucks trips, I decided that I wanted to get a little creative. I’ve been buying some products and practicing making iced coffees and frappuccinos. I still need a lot more practice, especially with trying different recipes and flavors, but for now, I figured I’d show you guys the easy way I make a homemade iced coffee and frappuccino!
Things You’ll Need
- Coffee (any flavor of your choosing)
- Coffee creamer (any flavor of your choosing)
- Whipped cream
- Torani vanilla syrup
- Torani caramel sauce
- Torani white chocolate sauce
- cute drinkware
- Coffee maker
To make these are very simple. I first started off with the frappuccino. I made the coffee using my Keurig, and then in my blender, I put in the coffee, ice, coffee creamer, and a splash of Torani syrup (pictured left). Then of course I blended it all together and put that aside in the freezer so it wouldn’t melt while I moved on to my iced coffee.
To make my iced coffee is simple. Anyone can make iced coffee at home, but I’ll tell you guys how I do it. Of course, I started with one of the main ingredients…ice! I put that in my mason jar cup, then I poured in a little coffee creamer and a splash of Torani vanilla syrup before I brewed my coffee.
Also to note: before I put my iced coffee or my frappuccino into the cups, for decoration, I put the Torani sauces all around the inside of the jars(pictured below). My inspiration is Starbucks when they do that with their drinks. It doesn’t work quite as well because the sauces drip down to the bottom of the jars, but it’s cute for the moment.
Once I finish brewing the iced coffee, I stir it all up and then I add more ice to the jar. I then took the frappuccino I made and poured it into the other jar. Below are both the iced coffee and frappuccino before I put the final touches on them!
The end result
Now it’s time for the final result! To add a little decoration and make it pretty for Instagram, just add some whipped cream on top and drizzle both the caramel and white chocolate sauces. You’re done!
