Coconut Frappuccino

This is a delicious summer drink. I know we're not quite there yet, but a sunny day in spring is good enough for me right now :-)

Coconut Frappuccino (2 servings)

1 double espresso (or 1 cup very strong coffee)
Whatever sweetener you prever: the equivalent of 3 tsp sugar (or to taste of course, I like mine quite sweet)
1 cup (200 ml) unsweetened coconut milk

Handfull of ice cubes

Put all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker, with a couple of ice cubes and shake for half a minute. Pour over (crushed) ice in a glass and enjoy. The ice in the shaker instantly chills the drink (so you don't have to wait until your coffee has cooled down).

If you don't own a cocktail shaker, you can put the ingredients in a blender, but make sure that your blender is capable of crushing ice cubes. If it isn't, you have to chill the espresso or coffee before you mix it.


  1. hello when you say one cup of very strong coffee..do you mean just the coffee powder..or an actual cup of coffee with water?

  2. I mean an actual cup of coffee. Espresso has a strong flavor, so if you use a regular brew, I would make a cup of double strength coffee.

    Thanks for visiting my site, and I hope my answer was of help to you :-)
