Coconut Mocha Frappe Recipe 


Last weekend I got a Frappuccino from Starbucks and decided I needed to recreate it.  Well I did it and it’s even better than Starbucks.  Even better, there’s no sugar added to it!  Yup you read that right!!


This drink is creamy with a hint of coffee and tastes like a coconut milkshake.  Even the ice is creamy, if that is even possible.  When I made this I kind of made a mess, but a tasty mess.  My blender was not happy with it because it was all ice.   I did manage to get it as blended as possible, but I kind of had issues.  If Husband is reading this, I want a new blender for Mother’s Day!  Anyway, the sun melted some of it, but the rest of it I ate with a spoon.  It sounds like a pain so far, but it’s not.  If you have a blender that can chop ice, you will have no issues at all.  Otherwise, get your spoons out.  I promise this drink will not disappoint you!!



I mixed all my ingredients together in a Pyrex measuring cup, than poured into a shallow plastic dish, covered it with a lid and placed in the freezer.  Every couple of hours or so I would go back and scrape the ice with a fork.   This prevents it from forming into one giant solid mass so it can fit in your blender.


The calories on my drink is 120 for a little over two cups worth.  That’s the same as a Starbucks Grande.  The sugar is 2 grams, but the fat is 10 grams, but take in mind it’s a healthy fat!!!

Here are my exact stats:  Calories:  120, Fat:  10, Sodium:  300, Carbs:  2, Fiber:  0, Sugar 2, Protein:  0

Let’s compare it to a Starbucks Grande, Light Coconut Frappuccino:   Calories:  160, Fat: .05, Sodium:  180, Carbs:  38, Fiber:  0, Sugar:  32, Protein:  4

I like my stats better!  And all that healthy fat from the coconut milk is great for our hair and skin!
