Dulce De Leche Frappuccino

Are you a morning person? When I was in college I used to sleep pretty late, I think that’s a common thing with everyone during college time. But it’s amazing how a lot of our habits change with time. After getting married and settling down in life, I started sleeping early, in fact now it’s a challenge for me to stay awake till midnight. I remember recently we had this Indian-Pakistan world cup cricket match and it went on till 3 am in the morning. I can’t remember the last time I was up this late and trust me it was hard for me to keep my eyes open in spite of me being a huge cricket buff.

Anyway whether I get sufficient sleep in the night or not, one thing which I always do need in the morning is my coffee!  Sitting on the couch with a hot steaming cup of coffee in the morning is probably my favorite time of the day because it’s the little “me time” that I get to enjoy before the hustle bustle of life begins.

New McCafé Coffee

Over the weekend when husband doesn’t have to go to work, we both like to spend some quality time together over a cup of coffee. There’s a problem though, my hubby doesn’t like hot coffee but he loves frappuccino. So I have to  make 2 types of coffee, hot for me and cold for him and for that I obviously need a coffee which works well for both versions and also tastes amazing. And which is why I was so excited to find new McCafé ground coffee beans and coffee pods which are now available in 8 different flavors in the coffee aisle at my favorite store, Walmart.

I instantly picked up the Breakfast Blend which like all the other flavors is made with 100% Arabica Beans harvested from the rich soils and mountainous regions of the foremost coffee-growing areas of the world. Using the McCafé Breakfast Blend I whipped up some dulce de leche frappucino for me and hubs over the weekend and the flavor left us wanting for more!

  1. i know, during college days getting up before 10 was a wonder for my parents. And now…..well things have changed but coffee habit never did :)Though i love indian massala chai equally, but cold coffee…..anytime 🙂 Awesome pic

  2. Your Dulce De Leche Frappuccino recipe looks amazing! Thank you for sharing your recipe. I have three young children, so early bedtimes and early rising has become the norm here… but a great cup of coffee still helps me get moving! #client

  3. I love frappuccino’s, never had a dulce de leche one though. These look amazing, I can’t wait to try it! Coffee is a very important part of my morning – I still stay up late, but have 3 kids that get me up early. Bad combination! 🙂

  4. I totally know what you mean about staying up late…I seriously am always in bed by midnight (real party animal over here). I blame it on being a mom…..I still not on the coffee train even though I desperately need the caffeine. This dulce de leche frap is starting to convince me though. Beautiful pics

  5. This frappuccino looks incredible, Manali! And don’t even get me started on the dulce de leche twist…I kinda want this to be in my kitchen right now! I’m the same as you, too…I used to sleep much later (and stay up later), but now it’s early to bed and early to rise. I’m almost ashamed to admit it, but sometimes we are in bed reading before 9pm on weeknights. When did we become so old?? Love this post, btw! 🙂

  6. I’m sure you’re saving some sugar as well as money there, Manali! Starbucks fraps are a little overloaded. This looks deliciously cool!
