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).

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).
  • 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.
Ingredients to make tofu mocha frappuccino

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!

    Yummmmmm! You are calling my name with this one. And I love the protein boost that tofu gives it to make it a healthy frappy. Fabulous!

    1. Sarah says:

      Meg, let me know how you like it! And yes, I love that satiating power of protein! Makes the frap perfect for a morning on the go 🙂
      PS: I’m loving your blog’s name

  2. Naomi says:

    looooooooooove this! I will be making this tomorrow morning. Amazing.

    1. Sarah says:

      Thanks, Naomi! Enjoy!!

  3. Katelyn says:

    I am a nursing students and do all of my meals prep early in the week or the night before work because my Ninja is so loud. Could you make this the night before or would it separate?

    1. Sarah says:

      Hi Katelyn! I haven’t tried making this smoothie the night before. I think even if it does separate, you can simply shake it up right before drinking 🙂 I wouldn’t make it more than a day in advance though.

  4. Autumn Nance says:

    Hello. It is important in my work as a health professional that the recipes I share give the amount of sugar. Is there a way to add the sugar content to the nutrition facts?


    1. Sarah says:

      Hi Autumn, thanks for your question! I just updated the nutrition information with more values filled in (sugar is 5.9 g for 1/2 of the recipe). Thanks for pointing that out! 😀

  5. Lisa says:

    I’ve never used silken tofu before, does it need to be cooked beforehand or can I just pile it on in?

    1. Sarah says:

      Nope, just throw it in! 😀

  6. christina says:

    I know it called a tofu fraphichino but i dont have any tofu and tipically dont like it . i want to try this recipe out tomorrow . is there something eles i can replace the tofu for ????

    1. Sarah says:

      Hi Christina! You could try banana, coconut milk, or even oats 🙂 You might also want to try my Wake Me Up Coffee Smoothie, it’s similar to this but without the tofu.

  7. Leah says:

    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!5 stars

    1. Sarah says:

      So smart! Glad you liked it, Leah! 😀

  8. Valarie says:

    I loved it but didn’t have any healthy no sweeteners and had to use the devilish sugar, but I’m very impressed never would have thought about tofu and coffee. Very good!!

    1. Sarah says:

      Yay so happy to hear, Valarie! Enjoy!!
