Salted Caramel Mocha Frappuccino Recipe

Just so you know, if you click on a product on and decide to buy it, we may earn a small commission.

If you, like many others across the world, are a Starbucks Coffee regular, then you’re no stranger to the frappuccino. These coffee drinks are a blend of espresso, milk or heavy cream, sugar, and some kind of flavored syrup.

With their milkshake-like texture and sugary sweet flavors, the frappuccino can act as a sweet pick-me-up on a hot afternoon for a seasoned coffee lover or offer a solid kick in the pants for those who need a jolt of caffeine but can only stand the taste of coffee in small, heavily flavored doses. 

If you love chocolate and caramel individually, you’ll love their perfect partnership in the salted caramel mocha frappuccino. 


Salted Carmel Mocha Frappuccino


  • 1/2 cup of strong coffee
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • 5 tablespoons of caramel sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons of chocolate syrup
  • 2-3 cups of ice
  • Whipped cream
  • A blender


Step 1:

The first step of making this chocolatey caramel frappuccino is pouring milk, brewed coffee, sea salt, chocolate syrup, and caramel into a high-speed blender, and pulse the ingredients until they create a smooth mixture.

Whole milk is on our ingredient list, however, if you’re one of our non-dairy Roasty readers, feel free to substitute in a milk alternative of your choice. And if you’re wary of using hot java in a chilled beverage, use cold brew coffee instead.

Blender Ingredients

Step 2:

Then, it’s time to add the ice. Use more if you want a thicker drink and less if you want it a little runnier, but remember: you still need the drink to be pourable after it’s been blended, so be careful not to make it too thick. 

Ice in Blender

Step 3:

Once your frappuccino is the perfect, thick, and creamy yet still pourable consistency, pour the blended coffee drink into a tall glass, and add the best part: the whipped cream! Finish the drink off with a drizzle of caramel sauce and chocolate syrup, and you’re ready to enjoy your homemade version of this Starbucks customer favorite. 

Frappuccino Toppings


Frappuccinos are best enjoyed on a hot summer day, and the satisfaction of knowing you made it yourself makes these drinks taste even better than the coffee house version you would have spent five bucks on.
