Keep reading, and I'll share some tips so you can make the perfect keto frappuccino.
You only need a few simple ingredients to make a keto frappuccino. Here is a bit more information about what you'll need.
Keto vanilla ice cream
Since this is a sugar-free recipe, you should make sure that whatever kind of ice cream you use is sugar-free.
You can use coconut milk, almond milk, or even whole milk ice cream. Just make sure it is vanilla and sugar-free.
Unsweetened almond milk
You'll thin down the frappuccino with some unsweetened almond milk - the plain variety is best. If you use vanilla almond milk, remember to use less vanilla syrup so that it doesn't taste overpoweringly like vanilla.
Heavy whipping cream
This makes the frappe really thick and delicious. You only need a small amount since you are using so much ice cream.
Sugar-free vanilla syrup
This is what flavors the frappuccino and makes it taste just like Starbucks. Adjust the amount of syrup you use based on how strong and rich you want it to taste.
You will also need some ice cubes to replicate the texture of the Starbucks frappe.
Please note: Check out the recipe card at the bottom for a full list of ingredients used to make this low-carb recipe.
- Use a high-powered blender. Some weaker models won't be able to blend the ice as well.
- Serve immediately. It won't taste as delicious after the ice starts to melt and the keto frappuccino separates.
- Serve with a large straw. If you make the frappe really thick, it might be tough to drink with a regular straw.
Making a keto frappuccino could not be easier! It only involves a few simple steps.
Blend all ingredients
First, put all the keto frappe ingredients into a blender or food processor and process or blend until it is smooth.
Serve keto frappuccino
Pour the mixture into two glasses. Then, top with your favorite sugar-free whipped cream.
️ Serving suggestions
When you make this keto frappuccino, you might be in the mood for a light dessert. If you are, make a batch of almond flour cookies. They have a crispy texture and a slightly sweet taste.
You can even serve this frappuccino with a side of decaf coffee or some keto chocolate cookies. The rich chocolate flavor will be a fantastic contrast to the vanilla frappe.
Or, make keto black and white cookies and enjoy the best of both worlds!
This is a very basic keto frappuccino recipe, so there are a lot of different ways you can change it up.
If you want to make a chocolate keto frappuccino, add a few spoonfuls of cocoa powder and top with a sugar-free mocha drizzle.
Another option is to add iced coffee and make a keto coffee frappuccino. Or mix in a shot of espresso! It will be really strong, so you might want to add more vanilla syrup.
If you want this to be a dairy-free recipe, use coconut cream instead of heavy cream. If not, you could also use whole milk in the frappuccino base instead of almond milk.
Finally, drizzle sugar-free caramel syrup on top.
The options are pretty endless! If you make any changes to this recipe, please let me know in the comments.
