This delicious, clean eating mocha coconut frappuccino recipe will put frappuccinos in a whole new light!

I used to love Starbucks. I truly did. But what I didn’t love was what Starbucks did to my eating plan. I mean, let’s face it, unless you order just coffee, most of their drinks are far from clean. So when a reader asked me to try this one, I had to give it a shot.

Image shows a clear glass filled with this Clean Eating Mocha Coconut Frappuccino. It has a light colored, coffee-brown icy or slushy appearance.

The truth is, I’ve gotten a lot of requests for cleaned-up versions of various Starbucks drinks. And while I fully intend to give more of them a try, this one seemed doable to me from the get-go. While it may not be an exact match, I think you’ll find this version equally enjoyable. In fact, it’s kinda like drinking a creamy slushy! Who wouldn’t love that on a hot summer day?

  1. Ooh the coconut whipped cream would be good with a little toasted unsweetened coconut on top!

  2. I make this but with instant coffee granules (much easier than brewing and letting sit, for me at least!), almond milk and coconut extract. A little unsweetened shredded coconut is also a great texture enhancer! The real secret to these drinks, though, is XANTHAN GUM. It can take even the iciest of smoothie and make them deliciously decadent.

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Interesting! I don’t use the instant coffee because it isn’t clean. But the xanthan gum sounds interesting, and I do have some. I’ll give it a try. Thanks!

  3. Emily Leone says:

    I’m going to talk my boss into letting me expense a blender ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Haha!!! There you go!

  4. chellie schmitz says:

    This looks great! Can’t wait to try it. I’m just wondering do you use unsweetened coconut milk from a can or the refrigerated kind, or doesn’t it matter?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      I use the light, canned version. So far, I haven’t found a refrigerated type that is clean.

  5. Lauren Conklin says:

    Oh so excited about this one! This is my FAVORITE Starbucks indulgence. Thanks for the clean version!!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      My pleasure! Enjoy!

  6. Bstargell says:

    That sounds wonderful! I love Starbucks, especially the Caramel Macchiatto and the Caramel Frappucino. Any chance of cleaning those up? ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Caramel is the one thing that has truly stumped me. I’ll keep trying though…

  7. YUMMMMMMMM…Me likey!!!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Awesome! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Have you tried Starbucks new refreshers? They are fruit juice sweetened and start at 50 cal.

    1. graciouspantry says:

      No, I’ve never heard of them.

  9. graciouspantry says:

    It would be different, but not bad. Try it! It should be good!

  10. graciouspantry says:

    Hope you enjoy it!

  11. Sue Palethorpe says:

    will try agave syrup instead of honey

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Sue – Just so you know, agave isn’t clean. I no longer use it.

      1. Jessicakaut says:

        Is there a type of agave that is clean?

        1. graciouspantry says:

          Not that I’m aware of.

  12. Oh my! This was delicious! I was out of coconut milk so I subbed almond milk and froze my coffee into cubes using less ice. What a great treat on a hot day!

  13. Jessicakaut says:

    Could you keep this in the fridge to last a couple days?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Only if you don’t mind it thawing. It’s more like a slushy.

  14. I made this tonight and it was delicious! I froze some leftover coconut milk last week in an ice cube tray so I was able to use that and cut out the ice. My fiance really enjoyed this as well!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Awesome! What a great idea!

  15. graciouspantry says:

    It’s based on the light coconut milk I buy at Trader Joe’s. The nutrition data I provide is a ballpark. It’s not exact. It will change depending on what products you use.

  16. graciouspantry says:

    Sounds yummy!

  17. Gonna try this recipe. Love the White Chocolate Mocha Frapp, I make a mock version at home but would love to hear if you tried a better version? I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk, fat free french vanilla creamer and coffee. I know the creamer blows it, but can’t find what to use for a substitute. It’s usually about 100 calories so I’m good with it. Thanks for the recipe!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      I haven’t tried that one yet, but I’ll add it to my list.

  18. Looks yummy! Gonna have to try this soon!

  19. I tried it and what a wonderful treat ๐Ÿ™‚ Now, if we could only figure out “carmel” that would be awesome!!

  20. I am going to try to make this with frozen coconut water instead of ice. I will let you know how it comes out!

  21. We make this at home also, but we use homemade cold-pressed coffee instead. The flavor is richer without the bitterness of hot coffee. The simplest way is to put 1 part coffee and 4 parts water into a container in your fridge overnight. In the morning, filter through cheesecloth/a filter lined funnel/whatever you have that will handle it. You’ll end up with about a quart and a half of coffee concentrate. When using for recipes like this, use slightly less than called for since the flavor has steeped longer.

  22. Love these kind of clean drinks! I’ve made a yummy “Caramel” with the coconut sugar! It is so good!! It may work with the drink, but haven’t tried it with that. I made caramel popcorn with it though! Thanks for the clean recipes!

  23. Christine says:

    I really wanted something chocolate and frozen tonight – thankfully I remembered this recipe!! I used Almond milk and 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder ~ it’s heaven!!! Thanks. ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. I am so excited about this drink! One of the problems I always run into while clean eating however is coconut. I strongly dislike coconut in any form. This causes a lot of problems. I’m also not a fan of almond milk. I’m not going to let the coconut get me down though. For now I’ll try it with coconut milk because I happen to have some sitting forgotten in my cupboard but most likely I’ll have to go to regular milk for it. Hoping if I add a little more cocoa to it, it will reduce to coconut taste. Now lol how do I use my coffee maker haha I don’t drink regular coffee and have never used the new maker my husband bought 8 months ago. Wish me luck!

    1. Amanda – Time to bust out that coffee maker!!! And while I haven’t tried it with regular milk, I see no reason why it shouldn’t work. Let me know how it goes! ๐Ÿ˜€
