Dairy-Free Coffee Coconut Frappe

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Folgers. All opinions are 100% mine.

Summer came early on the West Coast this year. We’ve had warmer than usual weather lately, and when it’s this hot and sticky, I just don’t feel like drinking hot coffee. But you and I both know that the likelihood of a mom getting a full night’s sleep is about as likely as her kids picking up all their toys without being nagged. So I still need my caffeine fix, but I get it with a frosty frappe instead.

This Coffee Coconut Frappe is dairy-free, low sugar, and paleo-friendly. The perfect frosty pick-me-up for summer!

Sure, store bought frozen coffee drinks are delicious, but that’s because they’re chock full of sugar and other additives I can’t pronounce. Not to mention they’re expensive – that cost adds up over the summer! Making my own at home means I can enjoy my frosty caffeine fix without the guilt.

Making your own is a lot easier than you might think, as long as you have a jar of Folgers instant coffee on hand. Instant coffee is ideal for making fancy drinks like this – no brewing or special machines required. The delicious recipe I’m sharing with you today uses only four ingredients: instant coffee, coconut milk, honey, and vanilla extract. Add a blender and some ice cubes and there you have it.

I love how versatile instant coffee is. Besides making coffee, I use it to add flavour to pudding, ice cream, cheesecake, anything really. And of course for fancy drinks like this.

This is my favourite summer paleo-friendly coffee drink. Not only is it low in sugar, but it’s dairy-free so hubby can enjoy it too. Of course, I don’t have dairy allergies, so there’s nothing to stop me from adding a generous dollop of whipped cream on top! And then some grated dark chocolate for a hint of mocha. Yum!

This Coffee Coconut Frappe is low in sugar and paleo-friendly (leave off the whipped cream for a dairy-free treat). The perfect frosty pick-me-up for summer!

  • This sounds like a great drink, a nice treat on a hot day, and I love how easy it is to make, imagine all the money saved making these at home, thanks for sharing!!

  • This sounds delightful, though I don’t need dairy free myself and it looks delicious. I might well have a go at making this with the next heat-wave that comes along. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • wowie ! not going to lie this might be something I have on a daily! looks absolutely delish and the fact that it involves coffee as well…makes it that much better

  • I love that this recipe uses honey as a natural sweetener. The coconut milk must add a nice flavour.

  • Wow .. This sounds really very yummy… I’m a huge coffee lover and the coconut milk sounds great too…. ๐Ÿ™‚ Going to try this really soon….

  • This sounds like the perfect summer drink to serve to my friends when they visit! Thanks for the recipe!

  • This sounds very yummy! I bet that the combination of coconut milk, coffee and honey is wonderful.

  • This sounds so much easier than the cold brew coffee that I’ve been experimenting with. I’ll have to try it.

  • This sounds amazing! I’ve been having to avoid dairy as much as possible because I’m breastfeeding and my daughter seems to have a sensitivity to all things dairy.

  • I love this recipe. Cold coffee drinks are my favorite go-to drink in the morning; no matter the weather. Yummy! Thanks; already pinned.
