This Tofu Mocha Frappuccino recipe is a delicious combination of silken tofu, cocoa, and coffee! The perfect plant-based boost to keep you energized all day.
I’m starting to regret only allotting two weeks for our tofu spotlight. Because there is SO MUCH you can do with tofu! We made “scrambled eggs” and chocolate pie and we’re keeping the tofu train rolling with a high protein frappuccino!
This sneakily healthy mocha frappuccino made its debut years ago when I first started the blog, but it was in dire need of some new photos (and I was in dire need of a good excuse to make it again) (but I mean, do we ever really need an excuse to blend together coffee and cocoa and drink it for breakfast? answer, no).
“I used cold brewed coffee so I didn’t have to chill the coffee in the fridge, other than that I followed the recipe as it was written and it was really good!” —Leah
Tofu Mocha Frappuccino Ingredients
- Silken Tofu: Silken tofu gives the smoothest texture (as opposed to firm) and packs in a punch of protein!
- Strong Chilled Coffee: I like to brew this the night before and throw it in the fridge to chill overnight. Aim for strong brewed coffee for maximum tastiness.
- Sweetener: I love a spoonful of brown sugar here, but you could also use honey, maple, or stevia.
- Cocoa Powder: Unsweetened cocoa powder brings that decadent chocolate flavor (without the calories). We have options for cocoa powder substitutes here, to include chocolate protein powder!
- Vanilla Extract: Just a dash will give this coffee smoothie major flavor.
- Ice: Finish it off with a handful of ice to make this frappuccino frosty cold.
Tofu might sound a little scary to blend into a smoothie, but I promise it’s delicious! The neutral tofu blends right in to the cocoa and coffee flavor, making for a silky smooth frappuccino that’s actually pretty healthy. Blend this up as a pre-workout coffee smoothie or an everyday kind of breakfast!
