Coconut Frappuccino With Boozy Whipped Cream

I couldn’t remember the last time I had a milkshake.

Coconut Frappuccino with Amaretto Whipped Cream

So I was proactive and resolved the situation with a frappuccino milkshake of a drink. 

I’m not much of a coffee drinker.  On occasion I’ll have an iced latte craving that I indulge through a Starbucks run.  But other than that my coffee consumption is rather unimpressive.  That said, I have no idea how to work a coffee maker.  I’m sure it’s super simple but for this recipe I went to Starbucks and ordered a decaf coffee.  To which I was told, “that will take us ten minutes to make.” To which I said, “okay, just give me non-decaf.”  To which they said, “I can make you a decaf Americano.”  To which I wanted to say, “I don’t speak coffee! I’m just trying to make a coffee dessert with booze so I need a cup of coffee!”  But I resisted and just said, “okay.”

Sprinkles.  Earlier I was complaining about my sprinkle-less world.  Well I immediately changed that on my next lunch break and I’ve since gone sprinkles crazy.  Growing up my mom used to let me put sprinkles in my vanilla yogurt for breakfast.  It was one of my favorite things.  And my dad is bulk buyer extraordinaire so we always had these giant containers of sprinkles that had like 8 different compartments offering a variety of shapes and colors.  Ohhh sprinkle memories.  Something to treasure for sure.

The first time I tried an amaretto sour I was like, “this is MY drink.”  I was in Austin on 6th street for a friend’s bachelorette party and it was probably (definitely) the most alcohol I’ve ever consumed in my life.  Because of that bachelorette party I felt like when I got married I didn’t need a bachelorette party…if that makes sense.  But we’re keeping this recipe calmer with just a touch of amaretto flavor to the whipped cream.

So initially I wanted the make coffee amaretto froyo.  I made the froyo mix, poured the mix into the ice cream maker, and then spent 10 minutes searching for an extension cord so I could take pictures of the churning ice cream in the one room in my house with the good light (and limited electrical outlets).  But then the frozen yogurt came out all icy and just terrible.  So I consoled my sorrows with this.  Then the next day I decided to leave the frozen yogurt making to the hundreds of froyo places and I went into milkshake making instead.  It was a way more successful endeavor.

Quick side note…why does Rev Run have a cooking show on Cooking Channel? And why am I watching it?  I have way more fascinating things to do.  Like be the tooth fairy.  Every time my puppy loses a tooth I freak out…in a good way.  And then I put Milkbones under her bed when she’s sleeping.  No child of mine is gonna miss out on the joy of the tooth fairy.

So here’s a milkshake frappuccino concoction for your Summer night.  And boozy whipped cream because, because.  This recipe is part of Recipe Redux’s July theme of ‘recipes with spirit.’  So for more booze check the links below.

Coconut Frappuccino with Amaretto Whipped Cream
Amaretto Whipped Cream
  1. 1 can full-fat coconut milk
  2. 2 1/2 tablespoons powdered brown sugar (just normal brown sugar processed in a coffee grinder until a powder forms, ~1 minute...or just use normal powdered sugar)
  3. 1 teaspoon amaretto liqueur
Coconut Frappuccino
  1. 4 bananas, frozen
  2. 1 cup coffee, completely cooled
  3. 1 cup canned coconut milk (remaining coconut milk after you scoop the top part off for the whipped cream)
  1. First make your whipped cream. Place canned coconut milk in the fridge overnight or in the freezer for 1 hour before making whipped cream. One hour before whipping up the cream, place a metal bowl and metal whisk attachment into the freezer. Open coconut milk can and scrape off just the thick top part of the coconut milk into the cold metal bowl. Once you hit the thin coconut milk below, stop. Use an electric mixer (and cold whisk attachment) to whisk coconut milk on high for 2-3 minutes until stiff peaks begin to form. Whisk in powdered sugar and amaretto liqueur. Scoop into a bowl and place in the freezer to keep cold while you make your frappuccino.
  2. In a blender, combine frozen bananas, cooled coffee and remaining coconut milk from can. Blend until smooth. Pour into cups and top with boozy coconut whipped cream and sprinkles. Definitely sprinkles.

  1. That was fun to read:) Love this drink, especially that whipped cream!

  2. Holy toledo – this looks AMAZING! I’m like you – I don’t even really know how to make coffee but I’m all for getting my lattes and fancy drinks out of the house. This recipe changes that :)

  3. What a fun twist on what would otherwise be a basic frappuccino. Yummy and refreshing!

  4. Sprinkles make EVERYTHING better, right?? :)

  5. Beautiful photos! This looks and sounds delicious!

  6. Yummmm!! I love amaretto, also good on the rocks! I tried making a similar frappuchino/milkshake last week and my ratios were wayyy off, going to try it your way, mine was basically completely liquid, ick!

  7. love this, kylie… looks delicious and the photos are perfect! i could use your tooth fairy skills around here… got to strap on my fairy wings for the first time when my oldest lost his first tooth a week ago! there are more on their way.

  8. OK…that looks INSANE! I’m totally making this. :) (and your photos are so lovely!).

  9. I also had parents who would buy me the multiple colored/shaped sprinkles. I need to try an amaretto sour now.. never have but I love all these flavors. I also need this milkshake in my life… love the frozen banana/coconut combo.

    And girl, please let me teach you how to make coffee. I have a post all lined up for french press how-to, but you’re gonna need ground coffee + a french press for that to be helpful :) It’s perfect for brunching at home with people!

  10. Yum!!
    Sprinkles make everything better for sure, and I’m a wee bit jealous my mom never let me put them on my yogurt as a child (although, wise decision on her part since I had allergies to food dyes that I thankfully later outgrew).
    I feel like I could still drink this as a pregnant lady since there’s only a tsp of amaretto in the topping. Just need some coconut milk & fresh decaf!

  11. Love your recipe and the photos are just beautiful! ;)

  12. Ummm… wow, this looks so delicious! And what gorgeous photos!

  13. KYLIE YUMM! I can’t say I’m with you about the coffee as I love my cup every morning :) BUT this looks delicious!

  16. Wow I want to eat this immediately! Love the whipped cream idea!

  17. This looks amazing! I’m in the market for a new blending device… Any recommendations? Preferably on the smaller side, easy to clean, and something that I can use both for quick bfast smoothies and the occasional deep dish cookie :)

    • I got a Vitamix for Christmas 2 years ago and I will never change to anything else! It’s incredible. Not small though. For small blending jobs I actually just use a coffee bean grinder…I got it as a wedding present and since I don’t make my own coffee I use it for making batters for single serving cookie/making date syrup/making quick salad dressings. I don’t make smoothies in it though. Vitamix is my go to smoothie maker:)

  18. Your post made me seriously laugh out loud. This looks incredible, and I’m glad you decided to go with the milkshake so I can make this asap and not have to pull out the ice cream maker :)

  19. How fun are these? Perfect for an after dinner treat!

  20. I’ve never thought to make powdered brown sugar! You should never live in a sprinkle-less world.. I’ve added sprinkles to my yogurt haha!

  21. Oh my gosh – this looks amazing! And now I’m craving it for breakfast. And, that’s just crazy talk! :-)

  22. this looks sooo good!

  23. I have a can of coconut milk in the fridge and didn’t know what to make with it…now I know!! Thanks!

  24. This recipe looks amazing. The spinkles, the creaminess…just, wow. Making very soon!

  25. Immediately bookmarked this. Thank you, enough said :)

  26. OMG I have a coffee bean grinder sitting in my pantry collecting dust!!! I will pull it out immediately…and I’ll also look into investing in a Vitamix :D Thanks a bunch!!
