fruity chocolate frappe

Fruity Frappe

This fruity chocolate frappe is absolutely spot-on for the hot weather we are currently experiencing. The frozen banana whips up like ice-cream and creates a luscious drink that pours into the glass all lovely and chocolatey. The apricot brings lovely sweetness and cuts the need for any added sugars of sorts. Enjoy this fruity chocolate frappe as a mid or afternoon snack, or even as breakfast with a piece of grainy toast spread with your favourite toppings.

nutritional information for fruity chocolate frappe

  • Apricots are rich in vitamin A and C and potassium. Potassium helps keep cellular fluid balanced and plays an important role in blood pressure and heart health.
  • Experiment with adding other tropical fruit instead (or in addition) to apricot such as mango or nectarines. Fresh berries would also be delicious!
  • If using soy milk in your frappe, use a soy that is made from soy bean extract instead of soy protein isolate. Also check your soy for added sugars. Many brands do this and it is simply not needed.
  • Avocado adds luscious creaminess to this smoothie without the addition of dairy. Avocado is also rich in mono unsaturated fats and vitamin B5.
