Salted Caramel Coffee Cooler

When I pulled open the curtains this morning, it was miserable outside. Dull, wet and horrible. The kind of day I pull on a hoodie that’s a size too big and prepare to make myself comfortable.

But by 10am, the sun was shining and it was getting rather hot. By midday, it was roasting. You may wonder why I’m telling you about this on a foodie blog? Well, it is relevant because today was my inspiration for this recipe.

Being somewhat addicted to caffeine, I like my coffee on a Saturday afternoon, but today it was far too hot for that. As I was wondering about what to drink, my eyes settled on my new Froothie Optimum 9400 blender and I had a brain wave – let’s blend my afternoon coffee with some ice and create one of those drinks I pay far too much for on the high street, but BETTER!

I had a Salted Caramel Frapuccino in Starbucks when they created them and I thought it was disgusting; it tasted really bitter and burnt… This is the version I wish they had created. If you don’t like coffee, just leave it out and add extra milk and a little more caramel. You can leave the cream off if you’re watching your waistline too!

You could use a pre-bought salted caramel sauce in this recipe, but I ALWAYS have some made from this recipe in the fridge for times like this. Just add a twist of sea salt to taste at the end. It’s great for adding to coffee, ice cream or sometimes just eating from a spoon! (Shhh… Don’t tell anyone.)

The Optimum 9400 makes short work of crushing down the ice in this recipe, but if you just have a standard blender, be sure to check the instructions to make sure it is suitable for blending ice.

Salted Caramel Coffee Cooler
A fantastic cold coffee drink which will pick you up on those hot summer afternoons. Using the serving glass to measure out most of the ingredients makes this super quick and easy too!
  • 1.5 glasses ice
  • 1/3 glass milk (I used my Almond Milk!)
  • 1 shot espresso
  • 2 tbsp salted caramel sauce
  • Whipped cream for topping
1. Place the ice in the blender, followed by the milk, espresso and salted caramel sauce.2. Blend together, until you get to a consistency you are happy with. If it looks too thick then add a little milk, too wet then add a few extra ice cubes.3. Pour into your serving glass, top with whipped cream and ENJOY!
Total time:
Yield: 1 Glass

The only problem is that if you are a messy cook like me, once the drink is all gone you are left with the cleaning up to do! Thank goodness the Optimum 9400 is so easy to clean…
