This Healthy Mocha Frappuccino Recipe is nutritious and easy to make at home! You can make it with or without coffee based on your preference.
For a long time, my go-to drink at Starbucks was their Mocha Frap. Sometimes I’d switch it up a little and go with a Caramel Frap when I wanted something sweet and really indulgent. However, Mocha has a special place in my heart. But we all know that Starbucks can get pricey if you make it an everyday habit. And also, those drinks are super high in carbs and sugar! I wanted to come up with a homemade version that’s every bit as delicious, and much healthier.
With how much I love frappuccinos, I wanted to come up with a healthy recipe that I can feel good about drinking. My frap is made with nutrient-dense real-food ingredients, and is pretty low in sugar. Additionally, I give a keto friendly option!

Does a Frappuccino Have Coffee?

Mocha Frappuccino Recipe
I kept the ingredient list as simple and as clean as I could here. I wanted to use ingredients that most people already have on hand or can find easily. And because we all like options, I give the option to make this drink with or without coffee. I don’t know about you, but I try to limit my caffeine intake after 2pm! (A girl’s gotta get a good night sleep.) Here’s what goes into my recipe:
- Unsweetened runny almond butter
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
- Pure maple syrup
- Liquid stevia
- Pure vanilla extract
- Plain unsweetened almond milk
- Coffee (optional)
- Ice cubes
- Toasted sliced almonds
