How to make a dulce de leche caramel frappe

Dulce De Leche Frappe

This past week I received a new blender from Blendtec. This is one amazing machine and I was eager to try using it in different ways. It was hot the other day, so I decided to make a frappe.

Dulce de leche, that thick caramel like syrup from Argentina, is something amazing. I love it and keep jars of it on my pantry shelves. I recently saw that Eagle Brand sells cans of dulce de leche. Dulce de leche is everywhere now: in ice cream, cookies, so why not in a frappe??

This frappe is so simple to make and trust me, once you make it, you will make them over and over again. Yep, they are that good. There is no need to go to a specialty coffee shop and spend $5 when you can make it at home for a fraction of the cost.
