Chocolate Mocha Mudslide Frappe

Hey, Hey Friends!

How’s your week going so far?  Can’t complain here!  Especially since I have a new coffee drink to share with you!!  Let my get right down to it and introduce to you my healthy Chocolate Mocha Mudslide Frappe.

Chocolate Mudslide Frappe 001a

This is my healthy version of a traditional mudslide drink that would contain Bailey’s Irish Cream, Kahlua, maybe some vodka and if your feeling spunky butterscotch schnapps.  Well my drink doesn’t have any of that!  Instead I have partially frozen coffee, cocoa powder, vanilla extract and a frozen banana.  It’s perfect and very filling!!!  And ohhh, the hint of banana with coffee, so good!  I never thought that combination would go so good together, but I was wrong, way wrong!!

I took your advise on this drink and I froze one and half cups of coffee in ice-cube trays.  You are so right, that is way easier than freezing it in blocks.  Thank you for the suggestions!!  You just made my coffee-making experience even better!!

This drink is magnificent but one thing I don’t like is taking photos of this drink.  The chocolate in it kind of separates  so you have to forgive the photos, but don’t let it scare you off.  This is truly a wonderful drink.  I was even thinking, but I didn’t do it, was adding a dollop of peanut butter to it.  I could only imagine how good that would be.  With this kind of drink the possibilities are endless.  If your feeling like a real sweet treat, drop in a scoopful of vanilla ice cream, oh yah baby now you’re talking.  Ok, now I sooooooooo want to add ice cream to it. I think I need to make a run to the grocery store!!!

Chocolate Mudslide Frappe

Well my Friends, after writing this post I really want to get a little bit of ice cream and try the drink that way.  I think I’ll make it with decaf coffee and have it for my dessert tonight!  Yum!!!  Funny, when you start writing a post, all these crazy ideas about what you should or could have done to your recipe comes pouring out.  I think that’s how I get my best ideas!  Now that I have this drink with ice cream on the brain, I totally need to try it and just maybe add a pinch of almond nut butter.  I’m feeling crazy, you may have to hold me back!

Ok, I’m done rambling!  Have a wonderful day!!

Toodles,

Jennifer

  13. I literally just made this and it’s wonderful. It ame out really thick, so I added more coconut milk. I also added PB2, but I can’t taste it over the chocolaty goodness. Fine by me! I’m just sad it’s halfway gone now.
