If you are like me, you love a frap. However, I always pass them by because I don’t want to drink all of those unhealthy calories. I had to recreate my own at home that incorporated my favorite mocha frap and green smoothies. It turned out delicious. It has the same texture but offers more flexibility in my coffee and milk options and allows me to add spinach. I do love drinking my greens. You can add other greens, too.
This recipe requires coffee ice cubes. We make these any time we have left over coffee. Simply pour your cool coffee into ice cube trays and freeze for at least 4 hours. Then, store them in a zip-top bag.
We keep a big bag of coffee ice cubes in our freezer basically all the time. I prefer decaf because caffeinated coffee makes me jittery. Then I can’t sleep. So I talk. Pierre doesn’t like that.
I take out all of my ingredients except the coffee ice cubes. I wait until I am ready for them so they don’t defrost. I use So Delicious Coconut Milk, Vanilla, cocoa powder, salt, Hershey’s Lite syrup, and spinach.
For two servings, add 1 cup of milk, 2 teaspoons of cocoa powder, a pinch of salt, and 2 tablespoons of Hershey’s Lite Syrup. Then, I add 3-4 large handfuls of spinach.
I start it on low.
Then crank it the whole way up. After the spinach is incorporated, I stop the machine and add the coffee ice cubes. I use 11 ice cubes for 2 servings.
Turn the machine back on and blend it for another 1-2 minutes.
Then, pour into a glass and enjoy!
You can even add Kahluaor Baily’s to your smoothie to make it a boozy smoothie.
