Caramel Ice Blended Coffee Recipe

Table of Contents

Someone somewhere forgot sugar in a pan and slowly burned it — that’s probably how caramel was born. A few cubes of butter, though, turned it into caramel sauce, and that’s one marvelous ingredient!

Caramel coffee drinks are the best. Yes, the mocha and latte are lovely, and how to beat a timeless classic like the cappuccino. Still, caramel makes everything better; there’s no doubt about that.

I guess the good folks at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf figured it out as well and started blending the golden-colored syrup with their top-of-the-line coffee. It is said they only source the finest coffee on the planet which is less than 1% of the world’s production.

If you want to make this drink at home, you need one good coffee, so visit your local roaster or coffee specialty shop. Look for a superior quality coffee from some exotic land and order it in a medium ‘city’ roast. We want to make the most of those milk, heartwarming caramel flavors. With your coffee in hand, let’s look at the rest of the ingredients.

What you'll need

You’ll need a fantastic coffee, yes, but also non-fat milk, a teaspoon of coffee creamer, a few drops of vanilla extract, some extra sweetener (choose your favorite) and whipped cream as a garnish; we can’t forget about the whipped cream, mainly because we get to drizzle it with caramel sauce!

Yes, you want to have caramel sauce too, and although you can totally make yours at home, I recommend buying one. There are plenty of fine options in the market, and you can even experiment with salted caramel sauce; it’s incredible!

The secret behind the perfect ice blended coffee is using cold espresso, you don’t want to pour it straight from the coffee machine, or you’ll melt the ice. The rest is easy.
