Cold Brew Frappe Recipe

Frappes have been out of fashion since the 90’s. Perhaps this can turn things around. Every bit as thick and creamy as the classic-versions-from-unnamed-multinational-chains, but with a fraction of the sugar and without all the extra additives.

Total Time3 mins
Servings: 1 drink


  • A blender that can crush ice
  • 200 g ice cubes
  • 160 ml cold brew concentrate
  • 140 ml milk
  • 60 ml pure cream
  • 1 tbsp (7g) rice malt syrup (or other liquid sugar)
  • ¼ tsp (1g) xanthan gum*


  • Add ingredients to a blender
  • Blend until the ice is smooth
  • Pour into a tall glass (400-500ml)
  • Top with whatever your heart desires, we used chocolate...


*Xanthan Gum can be found in the health food / gluten free section of the supermarket. It’s the magic ingredient to stop the ice separating into layers.
