Coconut Mocha Frappe

Howdy Partners,

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!!

      • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says

        I am so into coconut and I agree with you, if it has coffee in it, bonus!!

    4. Holy Moly..this looks and must taste like heaven! I want one of these babies right now!

    5. patricia comolli says

      Oh this looks great! I can’t wait to try this and I would love for you to recreate Starbucks caramel frappuccino which is my favorite. By the way I love how you share with us….

      • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says

        Ok, I’ll give the Caramel frappe a try! I have an idea on this one!! Oh and thanks!! 🙂

    6. This looks amazing! And I’m loving the no sugar part…40 grams of sugar in a starbucks frap?! no thanks!! I can’t wait to try this next time I go to TJs…too bad I used up my coconut milk making curry tonight.

    7. Yum! Must try this! Thanks for linking up at Breakfast Ideas Mondays!

      • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says

        Thank you for having me! I love your idea of Breakfast ideas Monday!! Brilliant!

    8. This looks AMAZING!!!

    9. Wow–can’t wait to try this! It looks SO refreshing. Will definitely be a fave while sitting out on the deck this summer.

    10. Oh YUM! I definitely NEED to try this really soon 😉 Sounds right up my alley!

      • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says

        It’s my favorite new drink!! If you love coconut,you’ll love this drink!

    11. Oooohhh! I have some almond milk in the fridge, wonder how that would be with a drop of almond extract and some cocoa powder instead of the coffee… I see an experiment in my future! And when I get some coconut milk in the house, your original is next. So glad I found your blog (through Pinterest).

    12. Erin Nordquist says

      You should try freezing your mixture in an ice cube tray. That way the smaller chunks would be easier on your blender.

    13. I love your blog, so many great ideas. I just nominated your blog for the Versatile Blog Award. Congratulation!!

    14. Nana Phyllis says

      I’m freezing ingredients to make this. I halved it to freeze since the light coconut milk I found had many more calories. We don’t have a TJ nearby! I’m thinking of adding pineapple chunks?? We’ll see.

    15. Tammie kish says

      My favorite is the chocolate chip frappe

    16. I love mocha Frappuccino from Starbucks. Please help me. I need to find one that I can make at home, with less sugar and easy to make

    17. Where does all of the sodium come from? Looks scrumptious!

    18. Sarah Grace says

      I’m Going to the store tomorrow to get these ingredients!! Sounds so amazing… Does it matter what kind of instant coffee? Also, do you have to freeze the ingredients first? Can’t wait to try it, thanks for sharing!

    19. Could you freeze in ice cube trays then pop them into the blender when frozen? It would allow for making big batches on the weekend for quick smoothies on the go throughout the week!

    20. Question…for the instant coffee…do you mean like 2 TBSP of it made like liquid coffee or do you literally mean like 2 TBSP of the instant coffee grounds right from the bag? Thanks! 🙂

    21. This was great! Through everything in my blender with ice since i forgot to freeze it the night before. Didn’t have coconut extract so used vanilla and added a scoop of protein powder. Loved it. Thanks for the recipe!

    22. I cannot wait to try this!


    24. Hey, I’m from Germany and I just found ur homepage… it’s amazing… just one question. Do you think it’s possible to use regular ice-cubes… I mean that you throw all ingredients (not frozen) in the blender with some ice-cubes and mix everything at once? Do you think it still would taste good? Because that would safe some time 🙂

    25. Hi there. Do you have an Instagram account?

    26. Sounds Amazing!… though…
      2 cups of Coconut Milk (Native Forest as example – some are higher) has 840 Calories and 90 grams of fat 🙂

    27. Leonor Navarrete says

      What kind of coconut milk do you use? I love this recipe hopefully I can make it soon.

      • Hi Leonor, I used Trader Joe’s Coconut Milk from the carton. It is only 50 calories a cup. There are other brands like Silk or SO Delicious. You can find it in the non-dairy section, normally in the cereal isle of the grocery store. Hope you enjoy the drink.

    28. This looks pretty amazing. Have a few ideas to add tot his delight. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    29. Can’t wait to try the recipe though just curious – you say it “serves 2 heaping cups” so does that mean the recipe is 2 “servings”???

    30. Do you used canned coconut milk?

    31. Looks good I will have to try it. I like a variety of frapps. I’m trying to stick with low carb everything and high protein. I do need a detox though if you can come up with that. No avocado though. Thanks

    32. I’d love you to make a low Carb green tea frappachino copy!!!

    33. Jana Anderson says

      Looks & sounds absolutely wonderful!! I cannot, nor wud I work hard to, afford Starbucks!! Trust me, I LUV COFFEE!!! BUT right now, my search is for good, if not great,, low carb, low fat, smoothies, cuz…. I just had 26 teeth extracted! Owie to say the least, but I need to at least try to stay healthy during the healing, but also not COMPLETELY DEPRIVE!!! So u can bet, I am trying this, and I very much thank you!! Jana

    34. I can’t believe it’s only 2 carbs! I’m trying this tomorrow!
