The Starbucks Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino has somewhat of a cult following, like few other drinks on the Starbucks menu. While this rich and delectable drink is loved by many, those with dietary restrictions will need to search for gluten-free or vegan alternatives.
Unfortunately, the Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino at Starbucks is not gluten-free. If you follow a gluten-free diet, you can try alternatives from their menu or research recipes that work with your diet. However, fret not if you have an incredible craving for the cookie crumble. We’ve got a recipe for a vegan, gluten-free, and healthier version of the popular frappuccino that is just as delicious!
If you follow the recipe we included here, one serving of your homemade drink will contain 240 calories, 20.1 grams of carbohydrates, 15.8 grams of sugar, and 6.8 grams of fat. Compare this to the Starbucks version of the drink, and you will be delighted with the taste and how much healthier this one is.
How to Make a Gluten-Free Mocha Frappe at Home
While there’s no shame in enjoying the sweetness overload of the Starbucks original, there’s also no reason that more health-conscious customers have to miss out on this delicious drink. Follow these steps for a vegan, gluten-free, and refined-sugar-free Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino recipe!
What You’ll Need
- Tray of coffee ice cubes
- 3/4 cup of non-dairy milk
- Two to three tablespoons of Skinny Mixes Sugar-Free Mocha Syrup
- One tablespoon of our Sugar-Free Vanilla Syrup
- 1/4 cup of gluten-free mini chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup of crushed Oreo cookies
- Gluten-free whipped cream
Now that you’ve assembled all the ingredients, it’s time to get down to business and create and indulge in your version of this popular drink without the guilt of overloading it with sugar—and making sure it meets your dietary needs.
1. Use a high-powered blender to blend everything but the whipped cream. Taste the mixture and adjust it to your liking, adding more syrup or milk if needed. Make sure not to over-blend, as this can make your drink a bit too watery.
2. Take a pre-chilled glass (you can add a drizzle of melted chocolate to the inside of the glass for an extra splash of sweetness), and pour in your frappe mixture.
3. Top your drink with delicious gluten-free whipped cream and a few more chocolate chips or bits of Oreo.
Depending on your dietary choices or flavor cravings, you can play around with different cookies, such as chocolate, salted caramel, pistachios, and more, for a more adventurous take on the frappuccino.
This recipe is a great way to enjoy a healthier and gluten-free version of the Cookie Crumble Frappuccino at home.
