Vegan Chocolate Frappuccino

Making your own Starbucks knock-off frappuccinos is easier than you think.
With just three ingredients and a blender, you can make this vegan chocolate frappuccino.

At a quarter of the price and without all the added sugars and artificial flavourings, you'll wonder why you didn't make your own faux-Starbucks drinks sooner. 

The macros for this drink compared to a Starbucks frappuccino will also astound you. 
You're saving yourself 190 calories, 40g carbs and 37g sugar!

The next day, chuck the chocolate ice cubes into a blender with the remainder (160ml) of the almond milk

Substitutions

Use coconut, oat or soy milk rather than almond.
Or, if you're not watching your sugar intake, use Chocolate Almond Breeze.
Add in a scoop of vegan chocolate protein powder and a touch more liquid for a high protein frappuccino.
Add a sachet or teaspoon of Natvia in lieu of the liquid stevia.
Try different flavours of liquid stevia like peppermint or English toffee for something a little different
