Chocolate Chunk Frozen Cappuccino

Chocolate Chunk Frozen Cappuccino Recipe via

I made this delicious concoction yesterday morning since “protein smoothie” was a prompt for the #FitnPhotoChallenge on Instagram.  I make a lot of fruit smoothies and I wanted to make something a bit different than I normally do.  I’ve been craving something like this since the weather is a bit warmer and since I don’t eat dairy I had to be somewhat creative.  

Recently, a few different blogger/Instagram friends suggested adding grassfed butter or coconut oil in my coffee for an extra energy kick.  While this concept is not exactly new to me, I have never tried it because I am a black coffee drinker and never had the urge to change the flavor profile.   It can make the coffee creamy and a little frothy so I figured if I wanted to make a cappuccino-like drink this would be the perfect way to try it.

My friend Lindsey from One Mother of a Day actually posted this Iced Buttered Coffee recipe not too long ago, which is where I got my inspiration.  Another friend suggested using coconut oil and since I don’t have grassfed butter (as used in Lindsey’s recipe), coconut oil the perfect substitution.  Here are the ingredients I threw together to make it and prayed to the recipe gods that it would actually taste okay:

Thankfully, it turned out delicious! It was the creamy, frothy, chocolatey coffee creation that I hoped it would be. I was actually so excited and in such a rush to post it and share that I somehow spelled “cappuccino” wrong while I was editing the photo. I’ll blame the caffeine jitters for shaky fingers but in reality it’s probably because I was doing five things at once. My children can’t apparently feed themselves 😉

Have you ever tried blending grassfed butter or coconut oil in your coffee?
