Mocha Frap-un-ccino

Mocha Frap-un-ccino

Introduction

I love Starbucks' Mocha Frappuccino, but with 260 calories and 54 grams of carbs, it didn't fit into my new healthy lifestyle. So I transformed it into a delicious protein shake.

    I love this recipe. I use unsweetened almond milk and add a little chocolate protein powder.

    I also put black coffee in ice cube trays and use these instead of regular ice cubes. - 6/13/13

    I make this recipe with unsweetened almond milk instead of soy milk and then use 1 tablespoon sugar-free chocolate syrup instead of the cocoa powder and flavored Stevia. So good and filling too. I love Starbucks Mocha LIght Frappuccino, but this a more nutritious and lower carb option. - 2/22/12

    Delicious! I added a handful of frozen strawberries and cut down on the ice and it's so good! - 2/19/12

    This is great! Never tried the "real thing", but can't imagine it being better than this. :-) This is so easy and quick breakfast: I put dry ingredients in a big mug in the evening, in the morning I add ice and soy milk and mix it. It's easy AND healthy! - 11/9/09

    Great recipe, but I recommend doing what others have done and substituting Almond Milk for the Soy Milk to reduce calories and avoid the hormone issues that the estrogen in soy causes. Yummy! - 6/4/14

    30 cal almond milk cuts the calories further, and I like it better than soy milk. Three packets of Stevia? One would be plenty for me. - 5/15/14

  • I use fat free milk, those others aren't "milk" to me, and splenda instead of stevia because stevia isn't good for you. This is quick and good! - 9/16/14

  • I make something similar. Low fat milk, ice cubes, vanilla essence, frozen banana, choc flavoured protein powder, cocoa, possibly also instant coffee. Doesnt need further sweetener. Thick and sweet, tastes decadent, about 200 cals. - 9/16/14

  • I am really happy I found this recipe. It really helped during a heat wave when I really couldn't bring myself to prepare a proper meal. Tasty and you can't beat the protein boost! - 8/17/14

  • This is very yummy! I couldn't find unflavored whey protein powder, so I got chocolate flavored, then skipped the cocoa. I also skipped the ice. Also not sure where you found such low calorie protein powder - mine had 180 cals. - 6/9/14

    I, personally, am a nofat latte fan, but I am anxious to make this for my cohorts who are frappucino fans. Healthy (and cheaper!) - 11/5/09
