This orange mocha frappuccino is one of my favorite ways to kick off my day. It's full of energy and mood boosting ingredients, and I can whip it together in a couple of minutes.
Why an Orange Mocha Frappucino?
If you haven't paired orange with chocolate or coffee before, you're missing out on an amazing flavor combination. Put all three ingredients together, and you have a flavor explosion.
But that's not the best part. What makes this orange mocha frappuccino so great is that the ingredients create the perfect trifecta for starting your day with a positive attitude and tons of energy!
Here's a breakdown of why these three ingredients combine to make an ideal start for your day:
- Chocolate is a natural mood-enhancer
- Coffee is a great source of caffeine, the stimulant that gives us our much-needed jolts of energy
- Orange, like other citrus scents, can support both energy and positive emotions
Put these three together, and you can't help but feel energized and happy!
This isn't the first recipe for an orange mocha frappuccino. However, it is the first one using my secret ingredient!
Don't worry, you don't have to wait until the end of the post to find out what it is. I'll tell you right now — It's Emergen-C® Super Orange.
I always have Emergen-C Super Orange in my pantry since it's a great alternative to other drinks when we're bored with drinking plain water. They actually have over 20 flavors, but orange is the one I usually keep stocked. Plus, since they always have it stocked at our local Walmart, it's easy to pick up on one of my many visits there throughout the month.
Since Emergen-C Super Orange is a fizzy vitamin drink, I knew it would add a frothiness to the frappuccino I wasn't going to be able to easily accomplish. Plus, it’s packed with Vitamin C plus other key antioxidants such as zinc and manganese to support your immune system along with B Vitamins to enhance energy naturally.* Emergen-C® dietary supplements are the delicious way to start your day.
I also just discovered Emergen-C® Energy+ Blueberry-Açai and Emergen-C Immune+® Gummies Orange. Now I have all three in our kitchen cabinet! If you hover over the images in the picture below, you can shop for them right now from your computer.
I get natural caffeine from green tea in Emergen-C Energy+,* so it's perfect for when I hit my mid-afternoon slump and need to pep up. Plus, Emergen-C Energy+ comes in portable packets that you can easily stash in your pocket or bag. It’s an anytime, anywhere product for your energy and immune support needs.*
Not everyone in the family appreciates the fun fizziness of the Emergen-C vitamin drinks so for them, I buy the Emergen-C Immune+ Gummies Orange. It’s your favorite fizzy flavors, now in a yummy new form! Emergen-C Immune+ Gummies support your immune system with Vitamin C and Vitamin D, support your energy with B Vitamins,* and are made with natural fruit flavors. No water needed!
Orange Mocha Frappuccino Recipe
I know you don't have a ton of time in the morning, so I kept that in mind when I created this recipe. All you need is a few simple ingredients, a blender and a couple of minutes.
- 3/4 cup strong coffee
- 3/4 cup cold milk
- 1 packet Emergen-C Super Orange
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 2 tsp sugar or sweetener of your choice
- 4-5 ice cubes
- whipped cream optional
- mini chocolate chips optional
- clementine slice optional
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend for 60 seconds.
Pour into a glass, add additional toppings, if desired. Serve immediately.
- Brew a cup of coffee, and then pour it into an ice cube tray and put it in the freezer. This way, instead of regular ice cubes that can water down your frappuccino, you can use frozen coffee cubes and enhance that delicious coffee flavor.
- A small dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of mini chocolate chips adds just a few calories and another few seconds, but takes this vitamin drink up a BIG notch.
You can find Emergen-C products at your local Walmart. In my local store, they are in the pharmacy area vitamin section. In the image below, you can see them on the bottom shelf in the middle. Go pick some up now so you can enjoy a delicious Orange Mocha Frappuccino tomorrow morning!
