Keto Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino
It is easy to make this popular Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino coffee drink recipe keto-friendly at home. It just requires a few swaps of ingredients.
- Use erythritol in place of sugar and a zero carb caramel sauce or sugar free caramel syrup
- Rather than using whole milk, use a smaller amount of heavy cream or half and half. Try 2 tablespoons of heavy cream.
- Top with some freshly whipped heavy cream or canned sugar free whipped cream
Keto Caramel Sauce
Here are a few compliant caramel sauce options consider. Lakanto is also a good brand for caramel syrup.
I strongly suggest sticking with erythritol, monk fruit, stevia or allulose based sweetener and caramel sauce. Some other "sugar-free" options elevate glucose significantly (ie. maltitol). Aspartame doesn't effect blood sugar, so if you consume that anyway , it and caramel syrup with it are fine.

I know a few people like to add ice cream for some of the milk when making a Caramel Frappuccino. I actually make my Strawberry Frappuccino with ice cream.
