Mocha Frappuchino (a.k.a) Frapp-pops

The other day I was trying to figure out a new recipe to try out for my blog The Sweet Life, but the more I forced my mind to work, the more distracted I got until I realized I was just too tired to think straight. My daughter, who has been transitioning out of a swaddle, into a crib while feeling the growing pains of teething, had kept me up for several long nights in a row and for the first time I began feeling like most new parents, tired.

So as I was nodding off while Eden nursed a great idea came to me. The Frapp-pop: a delicious way to get an extra kick of caffeine midday.

Mocha Frappuchino (a.k.a) Frapp-pops

This Recipe is :

Dairy FreeVegan

Serves

8 popsicles

Ingredients

  • 3 cups soy milk (I used vanilla flavored soy milk. If you use plain add 1 tsp vanilla extract)
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp instant coffee
  • 3-4 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp + 2 tsp cocoa powder

Preparation

  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl with a whisk until coffee and cocoa powder dissolve. Pour mixture through a strainer into a shallow container or ice cube tray and freeze.
  2. Once frozen, break (or cut with a hot knife) frozen Frapp-pops into small pieces that your blender can handle (it may need to defrost a little) and blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into popsicle molds and refreeze.
  3. This double freeze method gives the frapp-pops a smoother, creamier texture. If you were to pour directly into popsicle molds without the first freeze, the popsicles would turn out icy and flaky. You’ll be glad you made the extra step.

Notes

For classic frappuchino, omit cocoa powder and reduce sugar by 1 tbsp.

Sounds so refreshing. Wonder if I can swap almond milk for the soy?

Why not ?!?

They suggest almond because it's better for you; however, if you REALLY prefer soy, go for it. I'm just saying, though, maybe you might wanna research what soy does to a human body.

My question was to use almond. I don't drink soy. This recipe calls for soy and I won't touch the stuff.
