Creamy Blended Frozen Mocha

Make your own Creamy Frozen Blended Mocha Frappuccino at home, with this easy step-by-step recipe from @choccoveredkt! Full recipe: https://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2015/08/24/homemade-mocha-frappuccino-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 my favorite creamy Healthy Whipped Cream—which has just 6 calories for a heaping 1/3 cup!!!—barely even moves the nutrition stats on this thick and creamy beverage. Translation: You can top your creamy frosted mocha drink with a mountain of homemade whipped cream. Let’s be honest, the whipped cream is the best part!

Unrelated: A new design for Chocolate-Covered Katie has been in the works now for almost a year, and I’m crazy excited to finally see the new site go live… some time in the next few days! We’ve been taking your suggestions into account, and if you have any more requests for something you’d like to see in the new site design, now is the time to leave a comment and tell me!

Also, the new site will be mobile-friendly. It is way past time!

Creamy Blended Frozen Mocha
4/52

Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp instant coffee - such as Mt. Hagen decaf or regular
  • pinch salt (important)
  • up to 2 tbsp sugar or pinch uncut stevia or sweetener of choice to taste

Instructions

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!
