Frozen Pumpkin Spice Frappe


Better then Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Frappacino, just sayin'. Sorry SB!!
Liquid yumminess

Thanksgiving pumpkin pie in a cup with whipped cream(no whip for me please) on top. I loved it so much, I drank it for dinner the other night. Yep!! Pumpkin Spice Frappe was my dinner.

After making this frappe I CANNOT go back to the SB Pumpkin Spice Frappacino. Just can't do it!

Calorie comparison is approx 280 calories for SB grande to about 50 calories for this recipe.

I think you got the point.
No whip please
Pumpkin Spice Frappe

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup full fat canned coconut milk
  • 1 cup SB VIA coffee* (I make a couple cups of VIA coffee and keep it in the refrigerator)
  • 2 heaping Tbls pumpkin pulp
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin spice
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1full dropper liquid stevia (cinnamon or vanilla flavored stevia will work for this also)
  • A handful or two of ice or enough ice to make this drink frothy and thick.

Directions:
  1. Put it all in the blender and WHIRRRRRRRR
  2. Pour into your cup
  3. Insert straw
  4. ENJOY!

* You can make this a Pumpkin Spice Chai Frappe by substituting 1 cup chilled chai tea for the coffee. If you don't like coffee or chai tea, just use water.
ENJOY!!
Inspired by this recipe. THANKS!!

I made this, and loved it after the first 3 sips. I put a little too much stevia into it, and I used decaf coffee-- not SB brand. I could only drink 1/2 of it. My canned coconut milk is closer to 90 calories, but still a significant savings of calories for the flavor and satisfaction! Thanks again Linda.

I had it for breakfast this morning. I got the calorie count from another website. I kinda figured it was 50 to 100 calories.
I'm going to add some protein powder to this and make it a protein smoothie.
Thanks for trying the recipe!
