Mocha Coconut Frappuccino


1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (or ½ cup finely shredded coconut)
3 shots of espresso (a little over a 1/3 cup) of very strong coffee – freshly brewed is ideal, but instant is fine too.)
2 tbsp sugar
1⁄2 cup whole/full-fat milk
1⁄2 cup coconut milk from a can
2 cups ice
5 tbsp chocolate syrup
1/2 cup heavy or whipping cream, whisked to soft peaks


  1. Preheat oven to 325F.
  2. Place coconut flakes on a baking sheet and place in the oven for 5-10 minutes until golden brown. Check every couple of minutes, as different varieties brown at different rates. Take out of the oven and leave to cool.
  3. Make the espresso or strong coffee, stir in the sugar and leave to cool.
  4. Place the coffee, milk, coconut milk, ice, all but 1 tbsp of the toasted coconut and all but 1 tbsp of the chocolate syrup in a blender. Blend until combined.
  5. Pour into two glasses and top with whipped cream, reserved coconut flakes and chocolate syrup.
