While I made Kirk his morning latte, I pulled 2 shots espresso for myself and made up a frosty frappe to go with my breakfast last week.
I didn’t make it very sweet, and my cherries are tart (Costco sourced). Which was fine with me…I added a bit of coconut sugar to take the bite of the espresso from the drink. I’d hedge most would want it sweeter. This is no tooth rotting frappe. The kind a year ago I was sucking down daily. Wow, have I come that far?? Didn’t think of it that way…..I adapted to less sweet faster than I thought I would.
- 2 shots espresso (or cold-brewed, see below)
- 8 ounces chocolate coconut milk
- 1 cup frozen unsweetened cherries
- 1 large or 2 small frozen ripe bananas
- 1 Tbsp coconut sugar
- 1 cup ice cubes
Add the hot espresso shots with the milk, then add remaining ingredients. Process on high, in a high-speed blender, tamping as needed, until smooth.
Serve immediately with a wide straw.
Makes about 20 ounces.
You can also use cold-brewed espresso as well.
