Healthy Frozen Mocha

June 20th is Ice Cream Soda/Milkshake day, and since my husband celebrated his birthday this week I decided to create a healthy frozen mocha just for him. This delicious healthy version of an ice cream drink contains no ice cream (gasp), but it tastes like a frozen mocha and the bonus is that it is actually a much healthier drink than many of the ice cream varieties.  I like to serve this healthy frozen mocha with ice cubes and some cacao nibs sprinkled on top.

This is a healthy version of a ice cream drink or frozen mocha, it has no refined sugar and looks absolutely delicious topped with Cacao nibs.
Ingredients
  • ½ tsp instant coffee
  • 1 tbsp hot water
  • 8 ice cubes
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • ⅓ of a banana (not over ripe)
  • ¼ tsp almond butter
  • sprinkle of Himalayan pink salt
  • 1 tsp honey (optional)
  • cacao nibs (optional)
Instructions
  1. Stir together the instant coffee and hot water and place in a blender (I use a vitamix).
  2. Add 5 ice cubes, coconut milk, banana, almond butter, honey and the Himalyan pink salt into the blender.
  3. Blend using the tamper tool until mixed well.
  4. Pour into a glass add 2-3 more ice cubes, a straw and sprinkle the top with cacao nibs.
  5. Enjoy.

If you have a love of chocolate you could add 1/2 a tsp of cocoa powder to the blender when you make this drink to make it a healthy frozen chocolate mocha.
