Make your own creamy frozen blended mocha at home, with this easy step-by-step recipe. You don’t even need to leave your pajamas!

Make your own Creamy Frozen Blended Mocha Frappuccino at home, with this easy step-by-step recipe from @choccoveredkt! Full recipe:

Frozen coffee drinks are seemingly everywhere these days.

From Starbucks, to McDonalds, to Dunkin Donuts, you don’t have to travel far to get your summer coffee beverage fix.

It probably comes as no surprise that these frosty coffee drinks are far from healthy; a McDonalds Frappe Mocha packs 560 calories, 70 grams sugar(!), and an entire day’s worth of saturated fat into just one 16oz glass.

And a Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino—weighing in with 360 calories and 54 grams sugar—is hardly much better.

Luckily, recreating these creamy blended mocha beverages at home is extremely easy and will save you hundreds of calories per serving!

Not to mention all that sugar…

Topping it with Coconut Whipped Cream barely even moves the nutrition stats on this thick and frosty beverage.

Translation: You can top your creamy frosted mocha drink with a mountain of homemade whipped cream.

All frozen coffee drinks should come with a mountain of whipped cream.

Creamy Blended Frozen Mocha

A thick blended coffee drink you can make at home with just a few basic ingredients.
Total Time 5 minutes
Yield 1 serving
5 from 5 votes


  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp instant coffee granules, decaf or regular
  • pinch salt (important)
  • 2 tbsp sugar, or pinch uncut stevia or sweetener of choice to taste


  • Stir all ingredients together. You want it to taste a little too sweet, as it will taste less sweet once frozen. Sweetener amount will depend on the milk you use, your tastebuds, and the type of sweetener used. (You can use dates, banana, sugar, maple syrup, etc.) Freeze in an ice cube tray or in a few shallow plastic containers. Once frozen, pop out of the containers and blend on high. If your blender is not very powerful, you might have to let the coffee ice cubes thaw a bit first. Top with whipped cream (My healthy + dairy-free whipped cream recipe is linked earlier in this post) and chocolate syrup!

The recipe was adapted from my Starbucks Frappuccino Recipe.

    What a great trick for homemade coffee drinks- freezing the coffee instead of adding ice! I’m going to pour my leftover coffee into ice cube trays tomorrow morning. Your coconut whipped cream has been a longtime favorite around here, too. Can’t wait for my healthy frappucino.

  2. Alex says

    This looks so good. My parents are obsessed with both Starbucks and McDonald’s frappes. I’m definitely going to have to show them this.

    Hi Katie! I just wanted to say thank you for all that you do to post these delicious recipes. This is my first time posting on the blog and I wanted to let you know that your recipes were a life saver when I was going through some serious blood sugar problems and needed some sugar free vegan food (breakfast and desserts) and was getting tired of the same old thing over and over… I was very limited in what I could eat at the time. But I’ve been following your blog ever since and it’s inspired me to be creative in the kitchen myself.

    Now, as for the suggestions for the new site, I would like (if it’s possible) a way to search by ingredient. There’s not always a “tag” for what I’m looking for and I don’t always remember how to look up by that and most new readers probably wouldn’t know how to search by tag. The search feature on the site doesn’t always come up with just relevant posts related to the search term (for instance, if I search for a term and even instances where that term is only included in the link of the day or mentioned in the post, but not actually part of the recipe clutters up the search).

    Also, I love being able to see a pic with the recipe listings, but there are times when I’m searching for something specific and a recipe listing without pics so that more could fit on the page would be extremely helpful. I don’t always like going page by page a few recipes at a time looking for what I want. So, a link to a list of recipe links for all your recipes would be nice (and it would be easily searchable by ctrl+f). Most recipe sites have something like this.

    And one last thing, which I know may not be something you’re considering, but there’s been links at the bottom of your posts that takes us offsite to listings of recipes for various sites that most of the recipes don’t seem to be vegan friendly. I feel like, as a vegan, while we shouldn’t be judging or attacking others for their choices, it is counterproductive to direct others to animal products. I know you have your reasons for it, but that’s just my two cents on the matter.

    Anyways, thank you again for all you do and I’m sorry for the really long post… I just wanted to make sure I was making sense in how I described things.

    • Chocolate Covered Katie says

      Thanks for the feedback! My web designer is looking over the replies in this post and will let me know what is and what isn’t do-able. I hear you on the search feature, and what I sometimes do if I’m looking for a recipe with a certain ingredient (for example, strawberries) is I will google “chocolate covered katie strawberries feastie” and a website called Feastie has my recipes categorized 🙂

      The ads are done through my ad network. I actually have a very good reason for deciding to leave them up that helps veganism, and if you want to know more please feel free to email me!

      • Anon says

        Thanks for the tip for the ingredient search! I will definitely check it out later.

        I figured that having your recipes up on that network probably brings in non-vegans to your site. But it’s just unexpected to start seeing meat burgers and the like when visiting a vegan website.

        Anyways, thanks for all you do.

    • Chocolate Covered Katie says

      Aw well thank you! The recipes on the new site will have a rating system, so I’d be so honored if you rated your favorites highly. You do NOT need to buy my book to support this site. Just by reading and telling others about the site, it is people like you who enable me to do what I love. So thank you 🙂

  5. Harriet says

    May seem very minor, but I always thought that it was odd the the category for ‘healthy meal ideas’ was amongst the rest of the cakes and cookies etc. It might be better when it is just after them perhaps? Otherwise, should be good!

  6. Elissa says

    Wow, this looks so delicious!!! I was just surfing pinterest this morning and was unable to find anything that looked delicious and was (relatively) healthy 😉 This is perfect!

  7. glow says

    sure will… i will gladly do what i can for you.. and thanks for the generosity and i wish you much happy success on the continued journey to your cookbook dreams : )

  8. Aisyah Shulhah says

    Wow, this is very tasty and refreshing, when drinking on a hot day…

    Better if on top, sprinkled with grated cheese 🙂

  9. Leora says

    I love your site and have a request for your updated site. Can you add in a serving size recipe calculator option for each recipe. Your recipes are often formulated for one serving and I often want to make them for a family of 5. A recipe calculator would automatically transfer the proper serving amounts for whatever multiplied serving size a viewer wants.
    Thanks and keep up the good work!

  10. Baking Book Lover says

    Thank you for the great recipe! I have been reading your blog for a long time, but this is my very first comment. I cannot tell you how much I enjoy all of your creative food ideas. SO excited about the new website!

    Hi Katie!

    I just started a way of eating called “Trim Healthy Mama”; actually, that’s the name of the book that explains the whys and wherefores, as well as the how-to’s. The basic idea is that one always makes sure to have protein in each meal; to maintain one’s current weight, it’s fine to eat carbs and fats in the same meal; to lose weight, one should eat *either* carbs *or* fats with that meal’s protein.

    At any rate — and I don’t know if you’ve heard of the “Trim Healthy Mama” way of eating — I am curious if you made any of the recipes you’ve created compatible with the “THM” way of eating.

    If that hasn’t been a ‘thing’ on your radar, NO problem. I have a fairly good idea of what the “THM” -type recipes look like, and can figure out how many “Chocolate-Covered-Katie” recipes I can have while still remaining ‘on-plan’ with THM. In case some recipes were already designated “THM,” I thought I’d ask ( & also because I’ve often been accused of making things harder than they need to be 🙂 ).

    Thanks for all the work you have done, and keep doing, to post not just desserts that won’t be bad for us, but desserts that can actually be good for us! I enjoy reading your ‘blog and gobbling up the results of your recipes that I make. 🙂
