Nothing quite hits the spot like an icy frappuccino on a hot day.

The amazing wake-you-up smell of espresso, blended with ice and milk is so refreshing. Even better when you start adding some flavors in.

I’m still waiting for Starbucks to come out with a couple of my favourite chocolate combinations:

  • Chocolate peanut butter frappuccino
  • Orange chocolate chip frappuccino

Sound good?

I haven’t spotted them yet, but living in the UK, our Starbucks aren’t quite as adventurous as the ones I’ve seen in the US.

I may just have to make up my own!

My other Starbucks favorites – that they actually do sell – are the mocha-coconut and this dreamy caramel version.

That coffee-milk-ice and caramel combo blended together until thick, and topped with whipped cream and an extra drizzle of caramel, is a seriously luxurious treat!

Here’s how I make it at home:
