Frappe Recipe

Looking for a healthy frappe recipe? This one is inspired by the unicorn food craze—it has a pretty red hue from the strawberries and you can add glitter and sprinkles (or not). It’s a healthy take on a beautiful blended drink that’s perfect for summer. Regular frappes are LOADED with sugar but this one isn’t and it has protein to keep you full longer. Make it for the kids! Have it for breakfast! You don’t have to worry about the nutrition – this will fill you up.
Sweet strawberries create a natural pink color on this frappe. Almond milk and coconut yogurt provide added nutrients. The secret ingredient is vanilla and coconut flavored protein powder called Collagen Fuel. It gives this drink a tropical flavor plus health benefits. Use it to give pina coladas and smoothies a protein boost too (to keep you full longer)! If you’re going to drink calories make them support your weight loss efforts. I’m going to order it myself to see how it tastes.
Drink up!

For the strawberry sauce
1 pound strawberries, washed, hulled, and sliced in half
¼ cup water
1 teaspoon honey

For the frappe
2 scoops Primal Kitchen Collagen Fuel, Vanilla Coconut flavor
1 cup vanilla coconut yogurt (such as Oikos toasted coconut vanilla or Silk brand or Dannon Lite & Fit)
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 bananas
1 cup ice
6 drops natural blue food coloring (optional)


Make the strawberry sauce
Add strawberries, water, and honey to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 5 to 7 minutes, or until strawberries break down and liquid has thickened a bit. When cool, blend until smooth.
Make the frappe
In a blender, add Collagen Fuel, yogurt, almond milk, and bananas. Blend until smooth. Add blue food coloring (if using) and ice, then blend just until combined and ice is still slushy. In a tall glass, smear 2 tablespoons of strawberry sauce around the inside of the glass in a circular motion. Gently fill the glass with the yogurt mixture. Drink immediately.
