Almond-Coconut Frappé: Made with Silk’s Almond-Coconut Blend, you can indulge in this very delicious Frappé without the guilt!
Hey, remember that one time we went to Vienna, Austria, and I drowned myself in all-things ice cream and fraps?? Yeah, fraps. That’s what the cool kids call a Frappé these days. Which is also just a fancy name for strong coffee + milk + ice. So, remember? We were young, wild and free, and sipping on coffee at midnight was totally okay.
Waking up at noon because we couldn’t fall asleep due to caffeine-overdose was also a-okay. To be 25 again…
I’ve tasted a few super amazing Frappes in my life, but, not to toot my own horn or anything, buuuuut I am really IN LOVE with my very own Almond Coconut Frappe.
You know that I’m no stranger to making my own coffee concoctions – Eiskaffee, Mexican Coffee, Irish Coffee… you see where I’m going. Therefore, when Silk invited me to introduce their brand new Almond-Coconut Blend, I was all, sign me up – I have the perrrrfect recipe! Because, let’s be clear, Frappes don’t roll off the hips the way they used to, m’kay?
Silk has always been my go-to for Coconutmilk. It’s delicious, nutritious, and slim-alicious! But Silk has two new products now: Silk Almond Coconut Blend in Unsweetened and Original AND Silk Protein + Fiber Almond milk in Vanilla and Original.
I reached for the Almond Coconut Blend and found that there’s only 50 calories in a whole cup! And, it contains 50% more calcium than cow’s milk! I’m telling you, this stuff is pretty amazing.
Also? The mixture of cold, icy coffee with Silk’s sweet Almond-Coconut Blend is completely and happily refreshing and delicious. And skinny… just sayin’.
It’s different than the original Frappe, but it’s different in a really good way. If you love coffee drinks as much as yours truly, prepare to indulge without the guilt.

- 1-1/2 cups hot water
- 3 tablespoons instant espresso powder
- 1/2 cup Silk Original Almond Coconut Blend
- Sugar/Sweetener (this is a very strong coffee drink and I suggest using at least 1 tablespoon sugar)
- 1 cup crushed ice (if you prefer a thicker Frappe, add more ice)
Stir espresso powder into hot water. Let completely cool.
In a blender, combine cooled coffee, Silk Original Almond Coconut Blend, sugar/sweetener, and ice; puree until completely combined and smooth.
Pour into glasses and serve.
