Low Carb Mocha Chip Frappuccino

It’s been so long since I’ve been to Starbucks that I don’t even know if these are available anymore, but 10 years ago this was my favorite. I have finally found an amazing, healthy recipe to replace the insanely high sugar original.

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Dissolve instant coffee in a small amount of hot water. You can also use brewed coffee.
  2. Put ice in bottom of blender/bullet cup.
  3. Pour cream over ice.
  4. Add remaining ingredients to cup.
  5. Blend until smooth. Garnish with chocolate crumbles.

Sweet Buttercream Comfort Drink (keto, low carb)

Last night I was making hot cocoa and happened to taste my mixture right before I added the cocoa powder–oh my! It tasted like a warm, frothy version of buttercream ice cream.

There is no coffee in this, but I didn’t know what else to call it. There IS, however, lots of almond milk and deliciousness!

  • Liquid stevia To taste

Instructions

  1. Microwave almond milk for 2-3 minutes. 

  2. Add butter, vanilla, and sweetener. Blend until frothy.

  3. Enjoy!

Method 2: stovetop

  1. Stovetop is ideal for bigger batches. Pour almond milk into a pot and warm over medium heat. 

  2. Add butter and sweetener and whisk. Mixture should become frothy as it combines.

  3. Add vanilla and remove from heat. Pour into mugs and enjoy. 

This is also delightful with a dash of cinnamon. Happy Holidays!
