A healthy frozen mocha Frappuccino at a fraction of the cost and calories than the one from the coffee shop? Yup, keep on reading.
This refreshing bowl of protein, caffeine, and deliciousness is a smoothie and a cup of coffee in one. I’ve already shared with you other smoothie bowls recently, but alas, I couldn’t help myself when it came to making a frozen mocha smoothie bowl or a healthy mocha Frappucino.
Making it is super easy and I sometimes serve it in a bowl or a huge mug. You know, old habits are hard to break.
By making the different smoothie bowls in this series for you, I have become very fond of a cold breakfast and of course, a liquid snack. Yes, I start every day with my bulletproof coffee, but I am talking about breakfast. I usually eat breakfast around 9:30 am, often 4-5hours after I’ve been awake!
Being able to switch up what goes in my bowl based on what is in my fridge is super easy. And once you start making smoothie bowls in the morning, you will find the flavors you love best as well. All the ones in the series are lower in sugar, except one, that is high protein and high fiber, and that’s like eating dessert for breakfast.
I always have strawberries, blueberries, bananas, prunes, peaches and coffee in my house, either fresh or in the freezer. That might be why all of my top 5, go-to smoothie bowls have these ingredients in them!
A smoothie bowl is nothing more than a regular smoothie with a thicker texture. It took me a while to learn the tricks to making great smoothie bowls, but you can learn them super quick with my easy steps to creating the perfect smoothie bowl in the video below.
