Frappuccino Fridays: Double Chocolate Chip

August 2nd, 2013 · Lisa · gluten-free, Recipes, Sweet · Comments

Frappuccino Friday is here again! It’s the first week of August and we’re soaking in all the summer bliss.

Over the last six weeks, Nicole and I have been having so much fun veganizing everyone’s favourite frappuccinos.

So far this summer, we’ve shared our recipes for so many flavour variations, including:

Quite a decadent list! But this week takes the mocha madness to a whole new level. The rich, chocolaty flavour of today’s creation makes for one amazing, sweet summer breakfast. It is the perfect recipe to take us into the long weekend – ideal for enjoying while wandering the boardwalk, hanging out on the deck, or hiking through the forest (you’ll have plenty of fuel!).
