Recipe: Vegan Mocha Frapuccino

This is a very healthy, low-fat alternative to a Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino. Save yourself some money and cool off this Summer with this coffee-less “vegan mocha frappuccino”. You will get a serious “brain-freeze” with this…

Raw Cacao Banana Smoothies


INGREDIENTS

24 – ice cubes
2 – tablespoons of raw organic cocoa powder
2 – teaspoons of organic vanilla extract
1 – cup of soy milk (silk brand) *
1/4 – cup of raw organic agave nectar **
1 – pinch of sea salt

Simply place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Makes 2 servings.

* you can use vanilla-flavored soy milk and skip the two teaspoons of vanilla extract if you like.

** agave nectar is the sap from the agave cactus. It’s sweeter than sugar or honey and has a low glycemic index. I get my agave nectar from Whole Foods.

    yes… if you can give this a try, fishlamp! :o)

    if you can’t get the “organic” versions of the ingredients, just use the regular stuff that’s easier to find.

    Guccibear: we’re both in the same boat, actually. have been realizing how expensive it is to buy frappuccinos and iced mochas this summer… so, i bought a Starbucks Blender and although i spent $99.00, i’m sure it’ll save money in the long run as my whole family loves Starbucks… you can imagine how expensive it can be between 4 people.

    Thanks for the recipe, I’ll have to try that out. My wife is really into trying different kinds of coffee/cocoa drinks. I don’t mind a brain freeze because it’s been over 90 degrees all week!

    mmmm. That looks good, Carlos. Maybe you should suggest your vegan frappuccino to Starbucks. 🙂
