Tips for Making the Perfect Frappe

– Store your caramel syrup in the fridge before using it. This will help prevent it from becoming too runny.
– If you don’t have a blender, you can use a coffee grinder or food processor to blend your ice.
– For an extra creamy texture, use whole milk or half-and-half instead of reduced-fat milk.
– Adjust the amount of ice and milk based on your personal preference – more ice will result in a thicker frappe, while more milk will make it lighter.
– Don’t skip the whipped cream and caramel sauce on top! It’s what really makes this frappe taste like it’s from McDonald’s.
– Use a large cup or glass to ensure that all of the whipped cream fits on top without spilling over.
