Until recently I had no idea how easy it is to make coffee house style drinks at home. If you’ve got a blender and the right ingredients, you’re set. For this frozen chocolate chip mocha frappe recipe, I threw everything into my Blendtec and blundered into my new favorite drink concoction.

Using the ingredients I did, I was able to increase the nutritional value of this otherwise totally indulgent beverage. I’m all about sneaking the good stuff into things that taste like they’re really bad for you. 😉

Instructions:

  • Put ingredients into blender in the order listed above. Blend for 10-15 seconds or until smooth.
    • If you’d like larger chunks of chocolate in the final product, add those for just the last 5 seconds of blend time.
  • Serve in pretty glass or mug with smoothie straw if desired. These straws are the best because they allow larger pieces of chocolate to pass through without clogging.
    • For added glamour, shave a small amount of dark chocolate over the top.

This mocha frappe recipe is really creamy and tastes kind of like liquid chocolate cake. It’s the freaking bomb. Be careful not to add too much of the Kefir because it can create a more sour taste. I found that this is just the right amount for a creamy texture with the perfect flavor.

The Kefir and small amount of protein powder give this drink 11 grams of protein per serving but this could easily be increased if desired by adding more protein powder. I could definitely see this being an awesome post workout treat. It’s got a good balance of carbs, fats, and proteins for muscle and energy recovery. But, lately I’ve been treating it as almost a whole meal, pairing it with a light salad for lunch. It fills me up and gives me that much needed caffeine pick-me-up to get me through the rest of the day.

    interesting,,never had a frappe,,didn’t even know what it was until now,,looks good,but I like my coffee hot,,is this like a milkshake?

    1. Hi Vicki!
      Yeah it is sort of like a milkshake because the kefir and milk give it a creamy texture, but with the ice it’s more like a Frappacino from Starbucks. I like hot coffee too but this is super yummy cold. That Frappe mix can also be used for hot drinks too! I can’t wait to experiment more! 🙂

  2. Cynthia R says:

    Looks good, I’m not a coffee man but I love the frozen coffee drinks. Thought it’s probably more sugar than I should be having.

  3. Maryann D. says:

    I would absolutely enjoy this recipe as soon as the weather starts getting warmer. It seems so delicious and refreshing to try.

  4. Betsy Barnes says:

    I have had mocha frappe a few time out, however, I have never made a mocha frappe recipe at home. I love this recipe with the whey protein powder 🙂

    This sounds amazing! My end of the week treat is always a frappe, if I can make them myself, that would save me so much money by the end of the year! I will definitely be making this!

  6. Haven’t had a frappe because I don’t like coffee. I like all the other stuff.

  7. Sounds good. I didn’t know that Kefir came in a coffee flavor. I also didn’t know there was such a thing as a smoothie straw. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    I didn’t know that Ghiradelli makes a frappe mix and would love to try this recipe. I love chocolate and mocha flavors.

  9. Today I’d rather have a hot drink than a cold one.

  10. The Good Body says:

    This is interesting and like a smoothie people will be able to play around with the ingredients to pack other nutrients in and tweak it to their own personal taste.

  11. Holy cow do these look yummy, saving this from my week off next week 🙂 thanks for sharing, found you at the Share It One More Time link party!
