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!

Thirsty yet? Keep reading for the recipe...


280ml of Unsweetened Almond Breeze Milk
1/2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
8 Drops of SweetLeaf Liquid Stevia
(plain, chocolate or vanilla creme would work best)


Mix together the cocoa powder, liquid stevia and 1/2 cup (120ml) of the almond milk
Transfer to an ice cube tray and freeze overnight
The next day, chuck the chocolate ice cubes into a blender with the remainder (160ml) of the almond milk
Pulse until it reaches a thickshake/frappuccino consistency
Pour into your glass or jar of choice and enjoy!

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
