You can make delicious homemade frappe at home! This recipe will show you how to make a mint chocolate chip frappe that is delicious and refreshing.
Coffee can get expensive when you buy it out all of the time. I can get into the habit of buying coffee out and then I look at how much I’m spending and stop.
It’s very easy to make coffee drinks at home and a lot cheaper. I also like that there is less waste and I have control over the ingredients that are used. Plus I can make fun flavors I can’t find at my local coffee shop.
A few years ago I went on a kick of making frappes. They are so much fun for the summer when you want a latte but it’s too hot. It had been a while since I made one and I decided I need to make one again.
I have several other recipes we love so I will be sharing those very soon as I get back into making these delicious treats. Let’s just say I love to get creative with these frappes!
The one I wanted to make today is a Mint Chocolate Chip Frappe. The ingredients are far better than most of the special mint drinks offered right now. And you will save a bit of money.
I really like to use Grounds and Hounds coffee because it’s organic, Fair Trade, and it supports animal shelters. I have a rescued cat and have had many other rescued animals so they hold a special place in my heart.
You can leave the coffee out of this and just add more milk. It would still be delicious and less rich than a milkshake. Around here we have been needing an afternoon coffee so I left it in. I also say the whipped cream is optional but is it really?
You can also easily use dairy-free milk and vegan chocolate chips to make this drink vegan-friendly. It would be really good with oat milk.
Like I said one of my favorite reasons to make coffee drinks at home is to reduce waste. One bonus way to reduce waste when making this delicious Mint Chocolate Chip Frappe is by using a glass straw. I’ve used them for years and love them. They are easy to clean and beautiful.
