Vegan frappe-style smoothie

Vegan frappe iced coffee smoothie

This vegan frappe is really my ‘treat’ smoothie.

It’s definitely not breakfast – more like an iced coffee (though the addition of oats does make it very filling).

Coffee & chocolate are a perfect match for oats, and it even manages to include a portion of fruit.

You can get more breakfast smoothies here, like this classic tropical green smoothie or this pink smoothie with berries & almonds.

This vegan frappe recipe is perfection on a hot day – drinking blended, creamy iced coffee reminds me of long, hot summer days on the beach.

The first holiday I took with my in-laws was to Crete in high summer, and we seemed to stop in at every dark, cool roadside cafe we passed to sup on iced coffees and keep out of the blazing sun.

Any blender or smoothie-maker will do the job, but a personal blender (like my (affiliate link) Breville Blend Active, which is the one I’ve used for the last 2+ years and is still going strong) makes life so much easier for daily smoothie making – just add everything to the bottle, blend, rinse the blades and screw on the drinking cap and you’re good to go.
