Coconut Caramel Macadamia Nut Frappe Recipe #RedCupShowdown

It's a showdown as Seattle's Best Coffee searches for the best new coffee recipe. Seattle's Best Coffee is touring the Country in search of the newest, most imaginative coffee drink with the Red Cup Showdown. 

I enjoy starting my day with a fresh cup of Seattle's Best Coffee.  Since they now sell Seattle's Best Coffee at Walmart, it makes it easier for me to purchase it while doing my weekly grocery shopping.

I enjoyed some of the most delicious coffee while in Hawaii last week, and I have been spending too much time day dreaming about the Hawaiian sunsets. This morning I wanted to create a recipe using Seattle's Best Coffee that would bring back my favorite moments from our trip in Hawaii.

Inspired from our day of picking fresh coffee beans in Hawaii, I created a unique Caramel Coconut Macadamia Frappe. The recipe came out delicious, and brought me right back to the coffee fields of Maui.


  • 3 Cups of crushed ice
  • 3 oz. of coconut milk
  • 1 oz. of Torani Chocolate Macadamia nut syrup
  • 1/4 cup of Seattle's Best Coffee level 2 coffee
  • 1/4 cup of coconut water
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 1 Tablespoon of caramel sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons of whipped cream

First brew fresh Seattle's Best level two coffee that can be purchased at Walmart.

Next add ice, coconut milk, coffee, syrup, coffee and caramel sauce into a blender.

Blend until the ingredients are well mixed.

Coat your favorite cup with some extra caramel sauce.

Pour drink into a large cup.

Top with whipped cream and caramel sauce.

Enjoy! Be prepared to be swept into paradise with this tropical coffee drink.

  5. Wow, great post. These pictures are just amazing. The recipe sounds great, I am just worried that coffee taste can be lost, since you did use level 2 with all these other ingredients.Still, I am sure it is really tasteful. Have a great day!
