Healthy Chick-fil-A Frosted Coffee

Chick-fil-A’ s Frosted Coffee has been my favorite treat since having Kennedy! I am literally OBSESSED with them – there was a month where I had one every single day (except for Sundays, of course). Not only are they creamy and give me a little caffeine boost, but they’re also the most practical option for me right now! As a new working mom, I’m so busy that my hot cups of coffee seem to always get cold before I ever get around to drinking them… and Chick-fil-A’s Frosted Coffee stays yummy, no matter how much time passes between sips. However, there are a few downsides to my new obsession… I have spent a lot of money placing countless Doordash orders for just a single frosted coffee. (The Doordash delivery person must think I am crazy!) The Chick-fil-A version is also not the healthiest because it’s loaded with 39 grams of added sugar (it’s literally made with ice cream and coffee, so it’s basically a milkshake). I really wanted to create a healthier version that I could feel better about drinking so regularly. And in addition to being healthy, it also needs to be easy – I don’t have time in the morning to be adding a zillion ingredients to my blender!

Last week, I spent one morning in the kitchen testing out a bunch of different DIY recipes. And honestly, we nailed it!! This version is absolutely DELICIOUS!! I honestly might like it even more than Chick-fil-A’s version because it tastes less sweet, while still maintaining the creaminess and beautiful coffee flavor. The best part is you only need four ingredients and less than five minutes to make it! Of course I will still treat myself to Chick-fil-A’s Frosted Coffee every now and then, but when I want to save time, money and calories this is my new go to recipe.

Healthy Chick-fil-A Frosted Coffee Dupe

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup vanilla oat milk
  • 8 cold brew coffee ice cubes
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 scoop collagen

Recipe:

  1. Pour cold brew coffee into an ice tray and place in freezer for at least 24 hours, along with a peeled banana.
  2. Add everything to your blender in the order that it appears above, and blend blend blend!
  3. Pour your frosted coffee into a glass and enjoy! (I love drinking it with a glass straw)

This coffee tastes amazing (even Chris said it was better than the Chick-fil-A version!), but what I love most of all is that all the ingredients are good for you, too! It’s perfectly sweet and creamy – it’s hard to believe that most of the sweetness comes from a banana and that it’s non-dairy, too!

Definitely let me know (or tag me on Instagram) if you end up trying it!

xoxo

    Hi!! Honestly because of you I had become addicted too hahaha !! Didn’t realize it was ice cream…. ha ha!!!
    This new recipe sounds incredible – my question is about the collagen – do I need to do the collagen will it change flavor if I don’t? Thanks for making this and sharing !!! Xoxoxox

    • The collagen makes its extra creamy but doesn’t really add flavor! It would probably be fine without it, just not as creamy 🙂

    Can you make a post about your experiences with taking collagen? Why did you decide to? Does it work for you?

    Oh my! Is there a substitute we could use for banana?
    I don’t particularly like bananas – maybe I won’t be able to taste it?

      I would say you could use more coffee ice cubes and less banana. I actually just made this today with a whole banana and you can definitely taste it! It isn’t particularly offensive but if you don’t like it, you’ll taste it lol. Somehow that’s always how it is haha. Hope this helps 🙂

  13. Ok yum!!! I may have try and make this, but try a banana free version because I am allergic! Maybe coconut cream would be a good banana substitute for this recipe 🙂

    Made this and loved it! Never had the CFA one though. I did add a little bit of Stevia to sweeten it up just a tad, but it definitely didn’t make it too sweet! 🙂

    Loved the texture of this but couldn’t get passed the banana. I actually like bananas I just craved a stronger coffee flavor. I ended up adding an entire tray of cold brew cubes and I still felt that the banana flavor was overpowering. Maybe I need a stronger coffee. I used Stok unsweetened black coffee.

    Can you share your ice cube tray? I am pregnant and 8 cubes seems like a lot of caffeine! Thanks!
