How to Make a Vegan Frappe

Written by Ashley Palmer | February 28, 2012

I love fancy coffee. You know the kind—cool and caffeinated, extra-creamy, and topped with whipped cream made from rice milk. But buying frappés and lattes at specialty coffee shops can add up—on your bank account and your waistline—rather quickly. The solution? Make your own!

By making frappés at home, you control every ingredient. Want an extra dash of flavored syrup? No problem! Want to add soy milk? No extra charge! Plus, you can use healthier ingredients.

This super-simple recipe is perfect for at-home employees, penny pinchers, and coffee lovers. Enjoy!

Vegan Frappé

1 pkt. instant coffee
8 ice cubes
1/4 cup almond, rice, or soy milk
Optional: sweetener of choice, flavored syrup, vegan whipped cream, chocolate chips

  • Place the coffee, ice cubes, and vegan milk in a blender and blend until creamy.
  • Pour into glasses and add optional flavorings and garnishes. Serve immediately.

Makes 2 servings

    How/Where do you get the rice milk whipped cream from. Did you make it yourself? Or do you buy it in?

    You could make this even healthier by substituting Roma, instant roasted barley for the instant coffee… after a little transition you won’t even notice the difference! Yum without the guilt!

    Coffee of any sorts are my addiction really, and I’ve been looking for new things to try that’s why I browsed over the internet to check new stuffs, but it seems like these is going to be the first thing I will try.

    I surprisingly have all of the ingredients already even before I read this one. What a Luck. 🙂

    I’ve tried making something like this before. I found it easier to make the coffee, microwave it, cool, then blend it with ice cubes. The packets don’t mix well in a cold drink, for me, at least.

  • VAEH says:

    What’s garnishes? Isn’t some kind of flavoring or somthing like that?

    Christina, The instant coffee I used was made up of granules; it was also specifically for cold brews (but I don’t think that’s absolutely necessary). Hope that helps!

  • christina says:

    Is this granulated instant coffee or coffee in powdered form?
