Gingerbread Frappe - Bakemas Day 17

Because I have this weird obsession with eating ice cream based foods in winter.

It’s been a hot minute since I had a frappe, honestly I don’t think I had one all summer, I was on a bit of an iced coffee binge preferably black no sugar or just a touch of milk, so going from black coffee to a frappe is a very big jump in sugariness.

It seems I’ve saved up all my gingerbread recipes and gone on a rampage, I’d apologise but seriously, why wouldn’t you want to put gingerbread in everything (there’s another recipe coming and I am so excited about it, but then I think I’m done...for this year!). This is also the third recipe I’ve used ice cream in, honestly, I just have this thing about ice cream in winter. Hot cosy meals and cold desserts is the way to go.

This is the first time I’ve made a dairy free frappe; I’ve been putting it off for a while because my original recipe has condensed milk in and it makes a big difference to the flavour. If you’re trying to make a white mocha frappe at home, trust me, condensed milk will become your new best friend. I was all prepared to make this and feel like it was missing something but I think its spot on, as this was gingerbread flavoured and it needs to have a sort of molassesy vibe, muscovado sugar was a perfect alternative.

You will need
1 espresso shot or 1 heaped tsp instant coffee made up with a little water
1 tsp light muscavado sugar (optional depending on preference)
2 scoops of vanilla ice cream
3 mini gingerbread men or 1 large, I used this recipe
100ml milk
drop of vanilla

Add the sugar to the espresso shot or instant coffee in water, once the sugar has dissolved add a few ice cubes and set aside.
Add the ice cream, gingerbread man/men, milk, vanilla and cold coffee to the blender and blend until smooth, add the ice (I usually need about 8-10 large ice cubes) and blend until a slushie-like consistency forms. Top with cream (I used coconut cream), chocolate syrup, chocolate chunks a gingerbread man or anything else you can find to pile on top and drink immediately.
Serves 1


  1. I am just sitting here and wishing that there was a way that I can get it right now from my laptop screen. Thanks for sharing an amazing thing that all of us like a lot.

  2. This is surely great tips for coffee and espresso drinkers. Adding the sugar to the espresso shot or instant coffee in water makes sweet tasted flavor. You can see the latest espresso maker on https://toolercoffee.com/best-espresso-machine-under-200/
