Healthy Salted Caramel Frappe

saltedcaramel20

This Salted Caramel Healthy Frappe has been on my “List of things to make” for quite some time.  My list.  I don’t have access to my master list!   That’s right folks, I am writing to you from my old computer with the cracked screen.  I have not used this computer since my early days of blogging.  My apple should be fixed in a few days though.

Last year, I posted a recipe for a Healthy Coffee Frappe.   It was so delicious and popular, that I decided that this year, I will need to play around with different flavors a bit.  This Salted Caramel Frappe has only 6 ingredients and no added sugar.

One of the things I have been doing lately, is refrigerating my leftover coffee for iced coffee the next day.  This recipe requires your coffee to be cold.  You can always use the cold brew from Trader Joes, but don’t use nearly as much.  Store bought cold brew is very concentrated

The Caramel taste comes from dates.  You will want to soak them overnight.   No sugar is added to this Frappe because enough natural sweetness is achieved with frozen bananas and the dates.

This turned out really well.  This Frappe solves my post workout dilemma.  More Coffee? or Something Healthy?  Shortly after taking these pictures, I actually poured this right into a travel mug and drank it when I was driving to pick up my son at preschool.

I have not thought of any other healthy coffee frappe flavors as of yet, but who knows?

    Healthy you say? Does that mean I can have two then? LOL. I hope so because these sound to die for 🙂

     
  2. This sounds really great! I don’t drink much of this stuff but in the summer I try new drinks, this would be great to try!

     
  3. This sounds great. I love the combo of salty and sweet right now, so this is right up my alley.

    This looks so delicious. I will have to try it this weekend. I am sure my family will love it.

     
  5. This is the kind of drink my husband and two grown kids just love. I have never thought to make one at home.

     
  6. These look so good! I love frappes and usually go with a mocha. I should try caramel!

     
  7. These look delicious! I can’t wait to try it.

    Oh my word! I’m like going to go make this as soon as I finish commenting on your post! Yum!

     
  9. You had me at healthy. I am a frappe addict but don’t get them often because they are so bad for you!! I love that this one is sugar free!!

     
  10. Wait … do you realize you just used the word “healthy” in the same breath as “salted” and “caramel”? Just kidding. This sounds delicious.

     
  11. This is so yummy, I love frappes and this salted caramel one really catches my attention. I love a more healthy alternative to my favorite things, i will try this out.

     
  12. Thanks a lot for sharing this, it looks and sounds heavenly. I will definitely try this, it woild be a great thing to have after my walk.

     
  13. Healthy? Are you serious? I can definitely get into that! I’ll be adding this to my grocery list for sure!

     
  14. Oh, now I need to try this. I’m looking for ways to add more flavor to my diet.

     
  15. We do a lot of frappes, instead of cold brew or strong coffee and ice, we just make coffee ice cubes from the left over coffee. This is great tasting also.

     
  16. I love the idea of this and that it has no added sugar. I am saving this to try later.

    What are you supposed to soak the dates in?

     
  18. What is the calorie content? I definitely want to make this but I have to watch the calories.

     
  19. Hi …I was wondering where you purchase that brand of dates and what did u soak it in ? Thanks !

     
  20. What do you do to soak the date?

    TIA

     
  21. I love this recipe I will actually try it out, but I will use Javita Weight Loss Coffee as my base. Then you can call it Heathier Caramel Frappe. Our coffee is instant, dissolves in cold water, 100% natural, gluten-free, alkaline based so its not acidic and kosher certified.

  23. Just tried this but when i measured the cold coffee that i had kept overnight in the fridge (with the date soaking in it) i only had 1/3 cup. I used that and the same amounts for the other ingredients as in the recipe. It turned out well. It would have been way too strong for me with 2/3 cup of coffee.

  25. I am having trouble finding the medjool dates in my area. Anything that can be substituted for them?
