Paleo Mocha Frappuccino

paleo mocha frappuccino

I haven’t had coffee in 6 weeks, but this warm weather is making me reminisce of summer days with a Frappuccino in hand. Unfortunately, the ones from Starbucks are filled with sugar, dairy (or soy) and a bunch of other junk. So here’s my substitute! I know, I know…a Frappuccino is hardly “Paleo,” but at least it’s a pretty clean version of this delicious drink!

Recipe: Paleo Mocha Frappuccino (makes 2 small/medium servings)

1/2 cup strong coffee

1/4 cup full-fat, unsweetened coconut milk, refrigerated (I used the solid part from the top of the milk, not the liquid part)

2 TBSP honey

1.5-2 cups ice

1 TBSP cocoa powder

1/2 tsp vanilla

Brew coffee. Pour a 1/2 cup into a blender or immersion blender cup. Add the cocoa powder and stir to dissolve. Add remaining ingredients and blend (I used an immersion blender to whip it up fast). Continue to add ice until desired consistency is achieved. Enjoy promptly!

    I freeze coffee ‘cubes’ and use them with almond milk to make my version of Mocha-Coconut Frap. I add 1 Tbsp of unsweetened coconut.

    For Coffee I use white coffee (yes, the beans are white) and then Gosh That’s Good Sugar Free White Chocolate (25 cal’s a scoop) with two pumps of Sugar free syrup (no cal) and about 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk its about 75 cal for the whole drink and YUMMY!!!

    So I’m on day 4 of my 21 day sugar detox and I was craving something sweet…specifically your mocha frap but couldn’t have b/c of the honey. So, Diane from Balanced Bites mentioned adding cinnamon to things gives you the sensation that your are eating something sweet. So I made sans the honey and chocolate powder but added generous amount of cinnamon and just the cream from top of coconut milk can and so yummy! Don’t even miss the chocolate and honey. Well, that’s not completely true…but it did the job!

    This saved me this morning. I’m on day four of level three and was feeling the cravings come on. I feel like I’m cheating having this!
