Millions of Americans love their daily trip to the local coffee shop, but those fancy Frappuccinos and macchiatos, while picking you up, can also lighten your wallet. Lindsey Granger has four favorites you can make at home that are just as delicious, and will save you some serious money.
1. Iced Caramel Macchiato
Start by adding one tablespoon and one teaspoon of vanilla syrup into a cup. Now, add a cup of cold milk and some ice. Next, pour in two shots of espresso or you can use a strong brewed coffee. Finally, drizzle it with caramel sauce, give it a stir, and you're done.
2. Java Chip Frappachino
First, add a cup of ice in the blender and a tablespoon of chocolate syrup. Next, throw in some chocolate chips and a cup of coffee. Now you’re going to blend until smooth, then pour it in a cup, garnish with whip cream and chocolate syrup. Add a splash of orange syrup and you'll get an Orange Mocha Frappuccino!
3. The Pink Drink
Start by adding a dash of lemon juice to a cup of acai tea. Now, toss in some strawberries, ice and fill the rest of the glass with coconut milk. Then stir, garnish with a strawberry and enjoy.
