I love to start my day with coffee. In the hot summer months though, starting the day with a cold coffee drink sounds much more appealing than a regular hot coffee. A frozen coffee drink is also a great pick me up in the afternoon on those days when you need a little something extra to keep you going. This Coconut Cream Coffee Frappe Recipe is something you can make at home for a fraction of the cost of expensive coffee shop drinks and the coconut cream gives it an amazing flavor and super creamy texture!
I love the taste of coconut cream in coffee. It is a great non-dairy option that is so flavorful and creamy! However, if you prefer, you could substitute coconut milk which is also dairy-free but the coffee frappe will be less creamy in consistency.
Easy Recipe For Coconut Cream Coffee Frappe
- 1/2 Cup Coconut Cream
- 6-10 Coffee Ice Cubes – use your favorite brewed coffee
- 1/2 cup room temperature coffee
- coconut cream ice cream for topping (optional)
- Chocolate Syrup to taste (optional)
How To Make A Coffee Frappe:
I mention using coffee ice cubes. If you’ve read any of my frappe recipes before like my Homemade Mocha Frappe, then you know my coffee ice cube trick. If not, here’s the scoop. Regular ice cubes will water down your coffee drinks. If you use coffee ice cubes, your iced coffee or frozen coffee drinks will stay rich and flavorful. To make coffee ice cubes we simply pour regularly brewed coffee into an ice cube tray and freeze. We do this regularly to keep a supply on hand.
Also a note on coconut cream. For those that may be unfamiliar with coconut cream you can usually find it in your local grocery store in the section with evaporated and condensed milk in the baking aisle. An example brand is IBERIA Coconut Cream which comes in a can. I included my amazon affiliate link for organic coconut cream below for your convenience.
You can make this coconut cream coffee frappe with or without chocolate in the blender depending on your preference. If a coconut cream mocha frappe is up your alley, try adding 1 tablespoon of chocolate syrup into the blender with the other ingredients. Or you can just line the cup and use a bit of chocolate syrup for looks. Or leave it out all together as you like.
Place the coffee ice cubes, coconut cream, and coffee into your blender or into a single serve cup like a Ninja blender cup. That’s my favorite way to make this Coconut Cream Coffee Frappe Recipe. It’s easy to drink right from the cup that way and not dirty other dishes.
Blend it until it’s smooth and either drink from the cup or pour into a mug. I drizzled a little syrup into my mason jar before I poured it in and then topped it with a little coconut cream ice cream for an extra special treat. You can also drizzle a little extra chocolate syrup on top too!
What’s really great about the coconut cream is that it adds a great specialty flavor and doesn’t require added sugar!
