Remember last weekend when I said I need to try to re-create my frappuccino that I got from Starbucks? Well I did it and it’s even better than Starbucks and whats even better, 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 let it sit out at room temperature for a little bit to soften it up, but it still wasn’t happy. 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. Trust me 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 scrap the ice with a fork. I made this drink with unsweetened coconut milk, instant coffee, coconut extract, unsweetened cocoa powder and one packet of Stevia. This is soooooo good! I already made this twice this week and couldn’t wait to share it with you!!
The calories on my drink is 120 for a little over two cups worth. Thats 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! Now this may not be the healthiest drink in the world, but it’s not bad! My calories are less, my sugar is way less and my carbs are way lower. I’m good with that. I know my fat is healthy and we all need healthy fat, so we have gorgeous skin and beautiful hair, plus it’s good for the body as long as you don’t over due it. Oh and mine is creamy smooth all the way through, right down to the last drop!! No water is added to my drink! Don’t add water, no matter what! You want to keep the creamy, coconut taste!!
- Serves: 2 heaping cups

I loved making this drink and I’m going to try to re-create even healthier drinks. What is your favorite Starbucks Frappuccino drink? Is there one you want me to try to re-create? Just let me know! I’m on a mission.
Well my friends, I’m going to go. It’s still light out and I want to get a walk in. I have slacked bad on exercise this past week and I do need to do something! Have a great day!! Now don’t forget to tell me your favorite Frappuccino drink you want me to recreate! This is fun for me!
