LOVE this recipe! It's called the "Perfect Iced Coffee" and I'm enjoying a glass right now (made a batch last night, finished this morning)- it's really smooth and takes Zero time! Try it! (Oh, and visit Ree's website= The Pioneer Woman= it's wonderful :)
Coffee Frappe ~ 3 scoops vanilla ice cream, 1 cup ice, 1 cup chilled brewed coffee, 1/2 cup milk 2 tblsp Simple Syrup (see recipe), whipped cream & cocoa powder. Blend ice cream, ice, coffee, milk & simple syrup in blender until smooth. Pour into tall glass. Top with whipped cream. Dust with cocoa powder.
What makes a Caramel Macchiato, in my mind, is the wonderful layers. First sweet milk (milk and flavoring), then fresh espresso, topped with warm caramel sauce. Unmixed, the contrast of the bitter espresso and the sweet milk with caramel is the definition of bliss. Perfecto!
