Vanilla Frappuccino Recipe {Low Carb}

imageMy children are big Starbucks fans. If calories and carbs were of no concern to me, I would love it too! One of the drinks I really enjoyed during my last pregnancy was the Vanilla Bean Frappuccino. It doesn’t have any coffee in it and is caffeine-free. Of course, that was probably a contributor to my big weight gain with my son. Every time we go to Starbucks, I think about how tasty that drink was and how I will probably never get one again. I decided to try my hand at making a low carb version of my favorite Starbucks cold drink.

It’s not a perfect copy, but it is cold, creamy, and has a great vanilla taste.

 

Loved in the South’s Low Carb Vanilla Frappuccino

1 cup of unsweetened coconut milk

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

2 Tbl.sugar free vanilla syrup

2 sugar substitute packets

ice

Put in all in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour in a glass and enjoy!

If calories were not a concern, I would have added 2 Tbl. of heavy whipping cream and a dollop of whipped cream on top. I believe that those additions would make it even more like that favorite coffee shop.
