Mocha Coconut Frappuccino

Yum

If you are a big fan of frozen coffee drinks, chocolate and coconut.... this drink is for you.  I saw this recipe for a  Mocha Coconut Frappuccino and had to try it and share it. After the crazy weekend I had with loads of celebrating I needed this ice cool frozen drink to recharge my batteries.

Ingredients
1/2 cup shredded coconut
3/4 cup strong coffee ( chilled)
1 cup low-fat milk 
1/3 cup Chocolate Syrup
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 cups ice
1/2 cup whipped cream

 Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 300°F
  2. Spread shredded coconut on a baking sheet and toast coconut in the oven.
  3. Stir the coconut around every 10 minutes or so for even browning. After 25 to 30 minutes the shredded coconut should be light brown. Cool it off.
  4. Make double-strength coffee by brewing with twice the coffee required by your coffee maker. That should be 2 tablespoons of ground coffee per each cup of coffee.
  5. Chill before using.
  6. To make the drinks, combine cold coffee, milk, 1/3 cup of the toasted coconut, 1/3 cup chocolate syrup, and sugar in a blender. Blend for 15 to 20 seconds to dissolve sugar.
  7. Add ice and blend until ice is crushed and the drink is smooth.
  8. Pour drinks into two 16-ounce glasses. Garnish each drink with whipped cream, a drizzle of chocolate, and a pinch of some of the remaining toasted coconut. Add a straw to each one.

  3. I haven't tried that one yet - I'm a sucker for the plain old vanilla bean frappucino and can't seem to make it past that one to try any other kind. Maybe now I don't have to! Hope you had a great weekend and a nice Mother's Day!

  16. I have to be careful with this one. I would be having it morning, noon and night! Of course then I would be up all night but I don't think that would stop me.

  23. I totally need this for my mid day snack/energy booster to keep up with my kids. No, I won't share with the kids since they will be even more hyper. Heehee. ;-)

  24. Oh yummmmyyyy! I stopped drinking coffee, but a drink like this would be totally okay with me! How do you think it would be with coconut milk instead of regular milk?

    1. Sorry for the late reply Stephanie. I would suggest using the drinkable coconut milk by the other milk/soy products. I don't think the canned cooking kind is so good... I tried that already. :)

  25. Seriously! A morning buzz or dessert? I'd drink this anything, anywhere but before noon. You know that Starbucks would charge at least $4 for this?

  26. Yum sounds great. I have been wanting afternoon coffee recipes when it is too hot for a regular cup. I like adding a bit of expresso powder to my iced coffee to make it stronger. I will have to try this one. Thanks

    Have a great weekend!
