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.
Salted Caramel Frozen Coffee Frappe
2/3 cups of Cold Coffee

1 frozen banana
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pitted medjool date- soaked overnight
pinch of salt
Method: Add all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. drink right away and enjoy!
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?
