The time has come to ditch those wintry warming lattes and extra-hot drip coffees for more refreshing (and often way more decadent) iced coffee recipes. While Frappuccinos are really more milkshake than iced coffee, warmer temps are the perfect excuse to indulge. The downside is that options from Starbucks and Coffee Bean can get a little pricey if you're partaking a few times a week — but these 12 DIY concoctions are just as satisfying, are customizable to your taste, and you can make enough for all your friends for the price of one at a coffee shop. Sounds like a sweet deal to me!

Brownie Mocha Milkshakes
Salted Caramel Milkshake
I’m going to let you in on a secret — this ice blend has no coffee in it, much like the now-famous Birthday Cake Frappuccino (and I’m assuming a bunch of other versions). But this salted caramel drink from My Baking Addiction is brilliantly decadent on its own, and you could always add a shot of espresso if you’re looking for your caffeine fix.
