Banana Nut Butter Frappe & An Herbal Coffee Review

Banana Nut Butter Frappe & An Herbal Coffee Review | grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free | RaiasRecipes.com

As long as I can remember, I have been allergic to coffee. My reaction was so bad that I couldn’t even walk down the coffee isle in the grocery store without my lungs beginning to close up.

So you can probably guess that I never drank the stuff.

During college, when my roommates and friends were staying alive with mugfuls of the stuff every morning (and noon and night), I kept my energy up by eating apples, dark chocolate, and drinking black tea.

Last month, to my delight and intrigue, my friend Jessica from Delicious Obsessions sent me two little packets of her new herbal coffee blend to try. Though I don’t have too much experience with the taste of real coffee, I enjoyed Jessica’s blends.

They’re full of healthy, healing, organic ingredients like:

  • chicory root
  • dandelion root
  • milk thistle seed powder
  • burdock root
  • and carob

And they’re perfect for all of you who are trying to quit or cut back on your coffee addiction… 😉

I made a cup to enjoy while I snapped these photos. Unfortunately, a 2-year old decided to help me out. She was a little too helpful…

Jessica’s herbal coffees were tasty hot, chilled with ice, and made into this delicious dairy-free frappe. 😉

For more info you can check out her amazing eBook, DIY Herbal Coffee Substitutes, where she teaches you how to hand-craft her different blends. Be sure to tell her I sent you!

  1. Hi Raia,
    I’m not a coffee lover but this coffee certainly sounds quite unique and filled with a wealth of health. The Banana Nut Frappe sounds like it would be a wonderful breakfast drink. Thanks for sharing on Real Food Fridays.

        1. I’ve bookmarked it, so I remember. 😉 Thanks again, Lynda! I hope you enjoy the drink if you get the chance to make it! 🙂

  2. Thanks for linking up at our Gluten Free Fridays Party! I have tweeted and pinned your entry to our Gluten Free Fridays board on Pinterest! 🙂 I can’t wait to see what you share next time!
    -Cindy

    1. Her site has some pretty great recipes and health info. 🙂 You should definitely check out her herbal coffees, she sells them over on her Esty page. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Thanks for asking, Dori. 🙂 The frappe recipe makes 4 – 12 oz. servings. I’ve never had enough leftover to store in the fridge, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t be ok, as long as it was consumed within 24 hours (the banana in it will start to turn brown, otherwise). Hope that helps! 🙂

  3. Yes! I would love to wake up to a cup of this! Thank you so much for sharing this healthy and delicious Banana Nut Butter Frappe recipe with us at the Healthy, Happy, Green and Natural Party Blog Hop. I appreciate it!
