Healthy Java Mint Chip Frappuccino

Java Mint Chip Frappuccino with JOYÀ's Superblends

Why you'll love this Healthy Java Mint Chip Frappuccino

Summertime is all about being outside, live music, BBQs and fun, frozen drinks right?

What summer isn't about is when those fun, frozen drinks are loaded with refined sugar, fake flavors and fake coloring. So to continue your summer fun without much interruption, please feast your eyes (and tastebuds) on our Java Mint Chip Frappuccino made the JOYÀ way.

We've got coffee for caffeine. Cacao nibs for crunch and speckle. Mint extract for freshness. Coconut or cashew milk for creaminess and healthy fats. Calm (extra cacao) or Defend Superblends for added antioxidants and adaptogenic goodness. This beverage has it all without the junk, especially when topped with some (extra) homemade whipped coconut cream.

Ingredients to make a Java Mint Chip Frappuccino

  • ½ cup strong coffee, chilled very cold (or herbal instant coffee)
  • ½ cup plant-based milk (we love a rich milk here such as full fat coconut milk or cashew milk)
  • optional: 2 drops peppermint extract
  • 1 scoop JOYÀ Defend Vanilla-Maca Superblend (1.5 tsp) or for a more chocolatey version, Calm Cacao Superblend (1 tbsp)
  • 2 tsp cacao nibs*
  • ½ bar (15 g) JOYÀ Functional Chocolate (any variety), roughly chopped
  • 1 cup ice
  • optional garnishes: coconut whipped cream, shaved chocolate, chocolate syrup**

Additional Notes 

* For a sweeter version, omit cacao nibs and use a full bar (30 g) of JOYÀ Functional Chocolate

** For homemade chocolate syrup, either (1) whisk together 1 tbsp maple syrup + ½ tbsp JOYÀ Calm Cacao Superblend (or cacao powder), OR (2) melt ½ a JOYÀ Functional Chocolate bar with ½ tsp coconut oil and whisk until emulsified.

How to make a Java Mint Chip Frappuccino

  1. Chill the coffee and milk very well or else it will melt the ice when blending. We like to chill the coffee and milk in the freezer while preparing the other ingredients.
  1. Add chilled coffee and milk, peppermint extract, Defend or Calm Superblend, cacao nibs, chocolate and ice to a high powered, upright blender. Blend until smooth. 
  1. To serve: optionally drizzle some chocolate sauce onto the inside of your glass. Pour frappuccino into the glass and garnish as desired.
