Have you ever had a raspberry white mocha frappe? If you love raspberries and white chocolate (and really, who doesn't?), you'll like this drink.
- 6 oz double-strength coffee (brew it with a ratio of 4 Tbsp coffee beans per 1 cup of coffee, chilled)
- 6 Tbsp white chocolate sauce (I use Torani or the easy recipe below)
- 4 Tbsp raspberry syrup
- 2/3 cup whole milk
- 2 cups ice
- Pour all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
- Serve immediately, topped with whipped cream and drizzled with extra raspberry sauce if desired.
This recipe is really simple. You just throw it all in a blender with the ice and blend until smooth.
I like to top my raspberry white mocha frappe with whipped cream and drizzle extra raspberry syrup on top. Nate was a little weirded out that his drink was pink, but whatever. It's adorable. It's festive. And it's delicious! All-around, I think this raspberry white mocha frappe was a real winner that'll be staying in the recipe book for years to come. It's easy to make a kid-friendly version by just subbing in a little milk instead of the coffee.
I couldn't find raspberry Torani syrup other than the sugar-free kind at the store the other day (which I can't have since I'm pregnant), so I made my own. Simply heat 2/3 cups of raspberries with 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 cup water over medium-high for 7 minutes, then strain the raspberries out with a cheesecloth. I'd really like to try this with a more natural sugar alternative at some point, like coconut sugar or honey. Definitely adding that to the to-do list!
- 2/3 cup raspberries
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup water
Combine the raspberries with the sugar and water and heat over medium-high for 7 minutes.
Strain the raspberries out with a cheesecloth.
I think this would be a perfect thing to serve on Valentine's Day.

Now I'm wondering if we could make a similar version of this with strawberries. I don't think I've ever heard of any sort of strawberry coffee concoction. Raspberries and coffee complement each other really well, but strawberries? I may need to give that a go and see how it turns out. Blueberries, too. I have actually seen a blueberry cobbler coffee on Amazon once, and it had great reviews. I suppose I should add that to the list of things to try! Now I'm basically wondering about every sort of berry combination with coffee. Do you think cranberry coffee's a thing? How about boysenberry? I'm so tempted to make homemade versions of ALL of these. But first, I think we need some coffee cake or scones or a quick muffin to accompany our coffee.
