Healthy Strawberries and Cream Frapp

 

Jennifer at Peanut Butter and Peppers has come up with  a healthy version of the Starbucks Strawberries and Cream Frappuccino and it is DELICIOUS!!

 

Ingredients

  1. 2 cups unsweetened coconut milk (I used sweetened)
  2. 1/3 cup strawberries, frozen
  3. 6 medium strawberries,fresh, roughly chopped
  4. 1 tsp, vanilla extract
  5. 1/2 tsp. stevia (one packet)

Instructions

  1. Freeze coconut milk in a shallow dish. Once frozen, leave on counter to thaw a bit or microwave for about 30 seconds until it’s thawed enough for your blender to handle. Just don’t overheat it.
  2. In a microwave safe dish add the frozen strawberries and defrost for about 45 seconds. Mash strawberries with a fork. You are looking for the juice of the strawberries.
  3. In a blender add coocnut milk, vanilla extract, frozen strawberries with the juice, fresh strawberries and stevia. Crush/blend until incorporated about 2 minutes.

So how does it line up nutritionally with the Starbucks competitor??
