Hi, my name is Maxi! And I used to go to Starbucks everyday.. Yup, back in high school I went to Starbucks nearly everyday, which when I think about it now I can only shake my head at the money I must’ve spent. I’m not saying there’s something wrong with getting your Starbucks fix in, but the fact that I didn’t feel good after drinking any kind of frappucino (most likely due to the dairy, and maybe sugar) is what makes the amount of it I had so crazy to me!
Now, I’ve figured out how to get a similar taste in my everyday smoothies, though I don’t drink this everyday by no means (I like my green smoothies too much!). Craving chocolate? This is a great fit for you! Don’t want to spend a ton of money? Same applies. Don’t want to leave the house, and have the ingredients? It’s waiting for you…So here’s my version of a dairy-free, healthier chocolate chip mocha frapp!
What’s your favourite Starbucks drink?
Chocolate Chip Mocha Frapp
(df, gf, grain-free)
1 cup coffee
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1-2 tbsp. Enjoy Life dairy-free chocolate chips OR 2 squares of at least 70% dark chocolate
2 scoops Shaklee Vanilla Life Shake
Throw all ingredients into the blender and watch the magic happen! 🙂
Notes: For the dairy-free whip I just whipped up some coconut cream (which you can purchase canned) and some sweetener. I used 1 tsp. sugar, but I’m sure you could use stevia/maple syrup/honey/coconut sugar instead!
