While this Irish Cream Coffee Frappe recipe is delicious as written, there are many ways to customize it to your liking. Here are some substitutions and variations to try:

– Irish cream liqueur: Not a fan of traditional Irish cream? Swap it out for a different cream liqueur, such as Kahlua or Bailey’s Salted Caramel.

– Milk: Feel free to use any type of milk you like in this recipe – whole, skim, almond, soy, or coconut all work well.

– Whipped cream: If you’re short on time, pre-made whipped cream from a can or tub will do the trick. Or, if you want to make your own whipped cream with a twist, try adding a splash of Irish cream liqueur to the heavy cream before you whip it.

– Sweetener: Instead of sugar or truvia sweetener, you could use honey, agave nectar, or maple syrup to sweeten your frappe.

– Cold brew coffee: Don’t have any brewed coffee on hand? Make a batch of cold brew instead! Simply combine 1 cup of coarsely ground coffee beans and 4 cups of water in a pitcher or jar. Let steep in the fridge overnight (or for at least 12 hours), then strain out the grounds using a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth.

– Other flavors: Want to mix things up even more? Experiment with adding other flavors to your frappe! A drizzle of chocolate syrup or caramel sauce would be delicious on top (or blended in). Or, try swapping the Irish cream syrup for another flavor from Torani – their hazelnut, vanilla, and raspberry syrups would all be tasty options.

Whether you stick with the classic recipe or try one of these substitutions and variations, you’re sure to end up with a delicious and satisfying drink that’s perfect for any time of day.
