Looking for a Paleo alternative to those blended coffee drinks in the local cafes? It’s really easy to make your own, plus you can avoid the refined sugars (or worse sugar substitutes), milk solids, artificial flavors, preservatives and other additives often added to keep the milk and coffee from separating.

You can add your favorite collagen powder or protein powder and enjoy on the go in the morning when you need a pick-me-up but without the guilt.

What is A Mocha Frappe Made Of?

A mocha frappe is a creamy and delicious cold coffee and chocolate beverage. The ones that you buy from your favorite coffee shop are more often or not loaded with refined sugar, so as enjoyable as they are, they aren’t great to have every day! This mocha frappe recipe is only made with natural ingredients and is a lot lower in calories.

It’s really simple to make this mocha frappe drink (or homemade frappaccino).

Variations for This Recipe

If you’re not Paleo, but just want a real food mocha frappe recipe without the refined sugar, you can use whole milk and regular whipped cream.

To make it vegan, substitute the honey for maple or coconut sugar.

Is There Caffeine in a Frappe Drink?

A frappe is coffee based, so it naturally contains caffeine. If you are sensitive to caffeine, you can use a decaffeinated variety for your base of this drink. Similarly, if you need an extra boost of caffeine to get you going in the morning, then opt for a rich blend.

  1. This was amazing! I used can full fat coconut milk and it made it so rich and delicious!! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  2. This was FANTASTIC. Better than any frappe I’ve had at Starbucks pre-Paleo. Thank you so much for sharing! Also, what did you use for the foam on top? Just curious. 🙂

  3. I’m not a huge fan of coffee drinks, but I imagine I have a number of readers who are! I’ll be sure to share this on facebook. Thanks for sharing on Wellness Wednesday.
