Chocolate-Almond Coffee Frappe

"I don't know where I got this recipe, I think I picked it up for my teens to try (I don't like cold coffee). It seems like a good alternative to the high priced drinks at our local coffee stands. When making coffee in the morning, refrigerate the leftovers to make this later in the day."

  1. Oh my gosh this is so good! Used my Keurig for a cup of coffee or I would have been drinking this all day. LOL Whirled everything together added a straw and I was enjoying a very good coffee drink and saving money. Made for Culinary Quest 2015.

  3. Terrific frappe. I enjoyed this creamy, cold coffee, chocolate treat very much. It was quick and really easy to make with excellent results. I garnished this with 1 small scoop of vanilla ice cream, a squirt of whipped cream and a good sprinkling of cinnamon. Thank you so much for sharing this lovely frappe. I made this for Culinary Quest 2014 for the Suitcase Gourmets.
  4. Super yummy. I really enjoyed this. I opted for the whipped cream on top, and sprinkling cinnamon on top of the whipped cream contributed a lot of flavor. But the drink was very good all by itself, too. It was a very nice beverage that we really enjoyed. Thanks, momaphet. Made for 2014 Culinary Quest (South America).
  5. I made this on 8/21, and all I can say is,,,WOW !! :) I don't like chocolate ice cream,so I used vanilla along with the almond extract. I also added a bit more syrup to the ice cream/coffee mixture.Topped the finished recipe with whipping cream & dusted with cinnamon. This was made for the South American portion for the Culinary Quest 2014. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "


  1. Wow, is this ever good! I used 1 tbsp Kahlua instead of almond extract. I used very strong coffee. I plan to try it again with Bailey's Irish Cream. Dynamite recipe - Try It.
  2. Very yummy and refreshing! I used caramel sauce instead of chocolate syrup for my garnish. Made for ZWT6.
  3. The only chocolate ice cream I had in the freezer had macadamia nuts and I did the liqueur variation and added macadamia nut liqueur instead of almond... so really I made a chocolate-macadamia coffee frappee. Following the liqueur variation made an alcoholic milkshake which in itself is a wonderful idea. Made for ZWT6.
