Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce Ingredients

  • One 13.5 ounce can full-fat coconut cream
  • cup coconut sugar
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Frappuccino Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon melted Signature Dark chocolate
  • 4-5 ice cubes
  • ¼ cup strong coffee cooled
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • ¼ cup salted caramel sauce plus 2 tablespoons for bottom of the glass and drizzle (see above)
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon Cocowhip topping


For the Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce

  • Combine the coconut cream, coconut sugar and salt in a saucepan.
  • Whisk frequently over medium-high heat until you reach a boil.
  • Once it boils, reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes, stirring frequently until the caramel becomes darker brown and thickens to a syrupy texture.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the coconut oil and vanilla extract. Set aside.

For the Frappuccino

  • Swirl melted dark chocolate into a tall glass so that it coats the glass (this is for decoration purposes).
  • Then pour 2 tablespoons of salted caramel sauce into the bottom of the glass.
  • Using a blender, mix the ice cubes, coffee, milk, caramel sauce, and cocoa powder for about 30 seconds or until the ice is completely crushed.
  • Pour the frappuccino into your glass. Top with Cocowhip topping and a drizzle of caramel sauce.
