Do you love coffee, caramel and chocolate? This smoothie is for YOU!
Salted Caramel Mocha SMOOTHIE — I drink coffee every morning, this would be like drinking dessert. I almost didn’t name it “smoothie” — because anymore, the smoothies I see don’t look or taste anything like dessert! Welp, this little beauty here, contains no kale, no spinach, heck — it doesn’t even have fruit! But What it does have? Coffee. Yes, COFF-EE.
I am typically a black coffee drinker, but when I venture out, like to sweeten it up with caramel. Salted caramel, even better!
^ Love it?? PIN IT!! ^
I suppose maybe you could call this a Frappuccino? I went with smoothie though. It’s also amazing as a hot drink, too.
I have been a long time consumer of Torani syrups. It couldn’t be easier to jazz up a beverage, and its super concentrated, so it doesn’t take a lot.
This is my 3rd recipe this week for our Christmas Sweets Week! I started the week off with Winter Wonderland Fudge, on Wednesday I shared the cutest Grinch Fudge, today we have this smoothie and tomorrow you will get a recipe for Orange Meltaway Cookies.
If you want to skip the whipped cream, you could save on the calories, but what king of friend would I be if I told you to do that?? The dollop of whipped cream and a drizzle of the caramel were a perfect mood brightener on a cloudy winter’s day. I did add just a little bit of sea salt to the rim of the glass, too. Because, I was going all out. It was a Monday, and it was necessary.
