Let’s start by saying, I don’t like coffee (I usually buy the hot chocolate pods for myself). However, I love frappes. So, yesterday, I was working from home and found a frappe recipe that I really wanted to try to create but stay within my macros for my Keto diet. I absolutely love the Chocolate Chip Frappes from a nationwide fast food chain (they shall go McNameless). However, they no longer carry them and really, they were so high in carbs and calories, it was insane (760 calories, 33g of fat, 123g carbs, and 11g of protein). Wouldn’t you want to take those calories and carbs in daily? I know I wouldn’t, but I was. Not anymore!
I have been eyeing this recipe on Pinterest for some time. I decided I was going to be brave. Keep in mind, I only learned how to use my husband’s Keurig on Saturday and yesterday was Monday. Unfortunately, that recipe was just too bitter for me. Now, I was on a mission. I worked on tweaking it so that it was more Frappe than coffee. I started with my husband’s Keurig K cups in a breakfast blend. My husband likes a double cup made using the K cup. This will make 2 cups worth of coffee (like I said, all I knew how to make). Guess my college-age daughter was going to have to help me down these frappe’s as it ended up making enough for 3 servings. Combine the coffee with 4 ounces of cream cheese, 6 ounces of unsweetened chocolate powder, 4 ounces of heavy whipping cream, 5 teaspoons erythritol, 3 tablespoons of sugar-free chocolate syrup, and about 2-3 drops of liquid stevia. Blend until frothy.
Chocolate Keto Frappe
- 2 cups coffee
- 4 oz. cream cheese
- 6 oz. unsweetened cocoa powder
- 4 oz. heavy whipping cream
- 5 tsp. erythritol
- 3 Tblsp sugar-free chocolate syrup
- 2-3 drops of liquid stevia
This made for a really good frappe. The only thing I would do differently next time is to add some Lilly’s baking chips after blending. Of course, this would be my ultimate chocolate chip frappe. So, how did the macro’s work out you ask? Glad you asked because I hate it when someone gives you a recipe and doesn’t offer the breakdown. This was all calculated in MyFitness Pal and have the following macros: Protein 4.5g
- Fat 28.9g
- Net Carbs 6.6g
- Calories 368
I would want to top this off with some sweetened whipped cream and some chocolate shavings (not counted in the macros above). I wouldn’t say I should have this every day, but as a treat, not too shabby. I hope you enjoy and now look forward to making some good for you, chocolate frappes at home. Some variations would be to add ice, fruit, caramel, cinnamon, mint flavoring, etc. Your options are endless!
