Frappé Classico

Here's to your health!

Here's to your health!

I didn’t have the time to go to Pier 39 this week but that’s ok. Having a simple moment for a simple indulgence closer to home was completely fine with me.

Ghirardelli chocolate. You don’t have to be in San Francisco to enjoy it. It’s available for Foodservice!

The instructions say to pour ice and water into a blender, add the Ghirardelli Frappé Classico  mix and espresso and blend until frothy. Taking a sip made my eyeballs spin and my tastebuds do a Lindy Hop. Some smoothie shops really are that busy that we need to keep a quick, quick, really quick beverage blend on hand and if such is the case with you ~ keep some Ghirardelli Frappé Classico  on the shelf.

A 12 oz.  serving takes a cup of ice, a half-cup of milk, one quarter-cup of Frappé Classico  powder and your choice of 1 to 2 shots of espresso or double-strength coffee. And you don’t even need coffee if your customers don’t want any.

Safe to say, you might even want to twist the recipe your own way should the time ever come. Ghirardelli’s website suggests that you can add your favorite syrup to it as well: raspberry, peach, orange. Try something. Experiment and let me know what you think!


About Smoothie Essentials - ShelleRae

Welcome! I am ShelleRae and I am very excited you are here. I joined the Smoothie Essentials team about 5 years ago now. Always health conscious and into prevention versus medication it seemed natural when the opportunity came up to take on the creation of this blog and the MatchaGT blog as well. As mother to three and surrogate to many more I've practiced much of what I write on sometimes with great success and other times with a bit less. My friends and family are my test kitchen and my facts are most often from WebMD - they seem to have a fairly accurate and conservative approach. The Smoothie Essentials product is a line of boosts that add functionality to one's daily foods without adding flavor or colors. (except for MatchaGT and green blend) making it easy to "hide" them from the finicky eaters we all know and love. From stirring them into yogurts, smoothies, frappes and even juice drinks it all come out with the original flavor being center star.. My inspiration comes from others who also are striving to live a better life through lifestyle changes. More information is available at or by emailing
