Cookie Dough Mocha Frappaccino

A few hours ago, I was sitting in a tiny, freezing office (which is saying something since it's a billion degrees outside) doing work for my internship. Usually I check the mail and answer emails at the beginning of my shifts. There were tons of emails today and I didn't have anything else to do really besides filing some books, so I started thinking about baking.

First, let me say this. I don't always think about baking. I do think about it quite a bit, but mostly it's about how to make my blog better or what I can write for my next post. What can I make that everyone else isn't making?

But sometimes I do just think about baking. Which is what happened today, and I had a wonderful idea. 

I've seen some Mocha Frappe recipes on FoodGawker and Pinterest lately, and I've really wanted to try them out because I love mocha frappes. All that fancy stuff Starbucks does is cool and all, but sometimes a nice plain mocha frappaccino really hits the spot.

Then I remembered a Starbucks poster I saw yesterday featuring some kind of cookie frappaccino that I'm guessing had Oreos in it and I remembered how I really wanted one, but didn't get one. And if you've followed my blog at all, you know how I feel about Oreos.

But I didn't want to make an Oreo frappe (today, specifically. There will totally be an Oreo frappe on here in the near future) or a plain mocha frappe because those have already been done. So I thought, "What other cookie would be good in a frappaccino?"

And now here we are.


Eggless Cookie Dough
(Adapted from The Novice Chef, originally found in The Cookie Dough Lover's Cookbook by Lindsay Landis of Love and Olive Oil)

1/2 stick butter
2 tablespoons Truvia/Stevia/0 calorie sweetener
1/4 cup light brown sugar packed
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/8 tsp salt

Skinny Mocha Frappe
(Adapted from Sprinkled with Flour)

1/2 cup strong coffee
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons Truvia/Stevia/0 calorie sweetener
2 tablespoons light/sugar free chocolate syrup
2 cups of ice cubes

Whipped cream (I like the light whipped cream in a can from Target that's only 15 calories a serving)
Chocolate chips

  • Make a pot of strong coffee. Pour half a cup and put it in the freezer. (It needs to be cool so it won't melt the ice.)
  • In a medium bowl, mix butter, Truvia (or regular sugar if you want), and light brown sugar on medium speed for 2 minutes. It should be creamy and fluffy.
  • Add milk and vanilla. Mix until combined.
  • Add flour and salt. Mix on low speed until incorporated.
  • Next, combine coffee, milk, Truvia, chocolate syrup, ice, and 1/2 cup of eggless cookie dough in a blender. 
    • There will probably be left over cookie dough for you to eat straight out of the bowl.
  • Blend for a minute or two, or until there are small flakes of ice throughout.
    • I have a really cheap blender, so I used the "Chop/Milkshake" setting.


*I did not create either of these recipes. I just combined two I've wanted to try recently and changed everything I could to "light" or "sugar free". I'm not sure it will help much, but it makes me feel better about eating it. ;)


  1. Wow oh wow! What a great idea! I really like how you "lightened" it up!

  2. Was it hard to make? Time consuming? Maybe you can make that for me soon. Sounds awesome.
