Homemade Mocha Coconut Iced Coffee

I was so excited when I found this recipe on It sounded absolutely delicious!! I LOVE the frappachino one at Starbucks. I couldn't wait to try this coffee drink this afternoon! It was pretty easy to make and there is coconut whipped cream leftover for more!

Here are the ingredients you will need:

For coffee drink (1 serving)
5oz brewed coffee, cold
1/2 cup coconut milk
3+ tbsp chocolate syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp sugar
2 tbsp toasted coconut flakes

For coconut whipped cream (makes enough for several drinks)
1 can cold full fat coconut milk
2 tbsp sugar (or more for peaks to form)

Here is how you make it:

Brew the coffee and let it cool. I poured mine out into a glass and put it in the refrigerator to speed the process up.

Making the toasted coconut flakes:
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. 
Lay the flakes out flat on a baking sheet.

Heat flakes for about 5 minutes or until they turn a rich, golden brown.

Making the whipped cream
In a stand mixer (or bowl with an electric hand mixer) add the can of cold coconut milk & the sugar. Beat until peaks form - like the consistency of whipped cream. About 6 minutes.

Making the coffee drink
Fill the bottom of a glass with 2 tbsp chocolate syrup.

Add ice cubes.

Pour in the cooled coffee.

Add coconut milk.

Add vanilla.

Add sugar.

Stir to combine.

Add the whipped cream, chocolate syrup and toasted coconut flakes. Then drink the wonderful, chocolaty, coconutty goodness up!
