“Get your caffeine fix with a touch of paradise”

Pardon, allow me to immerse into the world of Gabriel Garcia Marquez as I describe this section.

The Toasted Coconut Mocha Frappuccino recipe is already an exotic blend of flavors that can elevate any coffee lover’s day. However, if you have certain dietary restrictions or preferences, there are a few substitutions and variations that you can try out to customize this recipe according to your liking.

Firstly, for those who prefer their coffee to be not as strong, you can replace the 1 cup of brewed coffee with chilled French press or iced coffee. Furthermore, if dairy isn’t your thing, coconut milk can be replaced with almond or soy milk, and powdered sugar with a natural sweetener such as honey or agave nectar.

In addition to these modifications, there are also several variations that you can incorporate into this frappuccino recipe for a unique experience. For example, you can add vanilla extract or coconut syrup for a richer flavor profile. If you’re feeling adventurous, add a tablespoon of cocoa powder for a thicker texture and more chocolatey taste. Alternatively, swap out the shredded coconut for chopped nuts like almonds or hazelnuts to give it some extra crunch.

For those who truly cherish the mocha coconut essence, consider adding more mocha sauce and/or chocolate syrup in combination with unsweetened shredded coconut flakes for enhanced taste sensations! You may even opt for adding whipped cream on top along with additional toasted coconut flakes while drizzling some mocha sauce on top.

Regardless of which elimination or variation selected, I guarantee any substitution will bring out different notes in the stars in your drink! May your creativity flow endlessly in devising your most delectable concoction of the Coconut Mocha Frappuccino Recipe!

For an even more tropical twist, serve it with some fresh fruit, like sliced mango or pineapple. The fruity flavors complement the coffee and coconut well, creating a taste of paradise in every sip.

If you’re feeling adventurous, try adding a shot of rum or coconut liqueur to the frappuccino for an adult beverage that will transport you straight to the beach.

No matter how you choose to serve it, this Toasted Coconut Mocha Frappuccino is sure to be a crowd-pleaser that will have everyone asking for seconds.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

“Indulge in a little taste of the beach”

The Toasted Coconut Mocha Frappuccino is a treat that can be enjoyed both freshly made and made ahead. To save some time, you can blend your frappuccino ahead of time and store it in the fridge for up to 24 hours.

Storing your Toasted Coconut Mocha Frappuccino is easy. You can keep it in an airtight container or jar with a lid to prevent any spills or odors, which will help maintain its delicious flavor. However, be sure to stir or shake the container vigorously before consuming, as some separation may occur.

If you have leftovers that you’d like to save, you can store them in the freezer for later consumption. For best quality, only freeze the frappuccino before adding any whipped cream or toppings. Then, when you’re ready to enjoy your creamy beverage again, simply take it out of the freezer and let it thaw at room temperature for about 30 minutes before enjoying.

Reheating your Toasted Coconut Mocha Frappuccino is not recommended. Since this beverage is meant to be iced, heating it up could potentially change its consistency and taste. Instead, we recommend simply adding more ice cubes or blending it with additional coconut milk when reheating.

In conclusion, being able to make ahead and store your Toasted Coconut Mocha Frappuccino will give you more time to enjoy sipping on this sweet and refreshing coffee treat. Just remember that proper storing techniques are important to maintain its beautiful flavor!

Tips for Perfect Results

“Toasty and to-die-for”

If you want to make the perfect Toasted Coconut Mocha Frappuccino, then listen closely as I reveal essential tips that will guarantee your success in making this delightful beverage.

Firstly, to give your frappuccino an extra punch of coconut flavor, use coconut milk instead of regular milk. The full-fat version of coconut milk is the best option for this recipe, as it will add creaminess and richness to your frappuccino. However, if you prefer a lighter version, use light coconut milk instead.

Secondly, you can up the chocolatey goodness of your frappuccino by using the starbucks mocha sauce or chocolate syrup. This will heighten the mocha flavor and ensure that the chocolate complements the toasted coconut perfectly.

Thirdly, instead of blending all the ingredients at once, blend them separately and combine them later. Blending the ice cubes first is crucial because it creates a smoother texture that won’t break down over time. After blending the ice cubes, add other liquid ingredients such as brewed coffee, cold brew or chilled french press right after.

Next on our list is shredded or unsweetened coconut flakes. Before adding them to your blender blend them in one tablespoon of powdered sugar so they stick together while blending. Start off with a small quantity of coconut and adjust according to your taste preference.

Another tip for this recipe is making a mocha-sugar mix out of cocoa powder and white granulated sugar adding it into coffee drinks every time you need an extra hint of sweetness and cocoa flavors.

Lastly, don’t forget about presentation and topping off your frappuccino with whipped cream with toasted coconut flakes or a drizzle of caramel sauce or both!

Applying these tips will award you not only with an aesthetically pleasing but also uniformly delicious Toasted Coconut Mocha Frappuccino.

  • 1 cup strong brewed coffee, chilled (french press or cold brew is best-decaf recommended)
  • 8 coconut milk ice cubes (or other milk, 3/4 cup full fat or light coconut milk)
  • 1/4 cup toasted unsweetened coconut, flake (plus more for topping)
  • 2 tablespoons light chocolate syrup (or other chocolate sauce plus more for topping)
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder

Coconut Whipped Cream

  • 0.5 (13 1/2 ounce) can full fat coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • The night before making, pour your (well-shaken) coconut milk (about 1 can) into an ice cube tray. You’ll need 8-10 cubes for one drink, and one can yields about one full tray. Save the leftover cubes for another drink.
  • In the morning, toast your coconut by spreading 1/4 on a baking sheet and cooking for 3-5 minutes in a 350 degree (F) oven.
  • Next place all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth and well combined.
  • To thicken, add more coconut ice cubes. To thin, add more coffee or chocolate syrup.
  • Serve immediately, or freeze for later. Top with coconut whipped cream, more toasted coconut and a drizzle of chocolate syrup, if desired.
  • To make coconut whipped cream:
  • Place your coconut milk in the fridge overnight or in the freezer for 30 minutes to an hour. Upon removal, be careful NOT to shake the can as you want the cream to remain separated from the liquid.
  • Open the can and scoop the top layer of cream into a chilled mixing bowl. Whip on medium-high until soft peaks form. (Add a dash of the remaining coconut liquid if it’s too thick.).
  • Add powdered sugar and vanilla and whip again to combine. Taste and adjust flavor/sweetness accordingly. Serve with hot cocoa and reserve the rest in an airtight container in the fridge for later use. Should keep for several days.
