Caramelized Espresso Frappe

Yield 2 1/2 cups (serving size: 1/2 cup)
Many gourmet coffee drinks have a high fat content because they're made with whole milk, or even half-and-half or cream. We can help you out here with our low-fat, iced Caramelized Espresso Frappe.

  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1 teaspoon instant espresso or 2 teaspoons instant coffee granules
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water, divided

  • 1/4 cup hot cocoa mix

How to Make It

  1. Combine boiling water and espresso; stir until coffee dissolves. Pour into an ice cube tray; freeze 4 hours or until firm.

  2. Combine sugar and 2 tablespoons water in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat; cook until sugar dissolves. Continue cooking an additional 5 minutes or until golden. Remove from heat; carefully stir in 2 tablespoons water with a whisk (mixture will bubble vigorously). Let cool.

  3. Combine caramelized sugar, milk, and cocoa mix in a blender; process until well-blended. With blender on, add coffee ice cubes, 1 at a time; process until smooth. Add crushed ice; process until smooth. Serve immediately.
